|WBC champ Saul Alvarez.|
A representative of the WBC commented on the situation: "We do not accept unification, because if we agree, we would be losing authority. We are not going to take away the exclusivity because we own the WBC brand."
Many people are very disappointed and annoyed at the WBC's decision to not sanction the bout. Although Trout was not the most ideal opponent that people wanted to see 'Canelo' face, there were still a lot of people who were looking forward to this fight.
It is still unclear as to who Alvarez will actually face on September 15th. At the moment it seems that just about every fight they have lined up for him, gets cancelled for some reason. The main names being discussed at the moment are James Kirkland (if he recovers from his injury), Carlos Molina and Acelino Freitas.
