Colombian Eleider Álvarez will fight for the WBC Silver light heavyweight title in Montreal,Canada on January 18 against an opponent to be determined.
Alvarez is training in the Big Bear Mountains in California to maximize his preparations, with trainers Angel Heredia and Marc Ramsay.
“I’m training hard, here in Big Bear at great altitude with great aptitude, which helps my condition. It’s an 8 am until 3 pm task. This won’t be an easy fight, but I’m happy for this chance to contest the Silver title and do it on HBO.”.
Alvarez was to have fought unbeaten South African Thomas Oosthuizen on January 18 but the former IBO champ recently suffered an injury and has since been released by co promoter Rodney Berman.
