THE WBC have ordered a final eliminator between Jermall Charlo and Jorge Sebastian Heiland to determine the next mandatory challenger for middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.

Golovkin – who also holds the WBA and IBF titles – defended his 160lb crown against Danny Jacobs earlier this month, dropping and outpointing the American in New York.

During a recent trip to Argentian – Heiland’s home country – WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman confirmed that Charlo and Jorge are set to meet in a final eliminator.
