Don King’s cruiserweight winner wants Canelo, a heavyweight title fight game

Promoter Don King has said the winner of his next cruiserweight title fight wants to fight Canelo, as former manager Mike Tyson also staged a heavyweight title fight.

Last year, Ilunga Makabu – the WBC title holder – targeted Canelo coach Eddy Reynoso at the World Boxing Council convention. He defends his belt against the mandatory challenger Thabiso Mchunu.

The event takes place January 29 in Warren, Ohio. King confirmed that the winner had “hope” to fight King Pound for Pound.

WBN understands that May 7 in Las Vegas is the scheduled date for the historic collision.

Trevor Bryan, the “regular” WBA heavyweight champion – at least for now – will put his belt on the line against an opponent who will be revealed by King.

WBN thinks it will be Jonathan Guidry who will be okay.
