Andrew Cancio took his team to a steakhouse on Monday, but it wasn't a festive dinner.

Cancio came out 48 hours earlier in a defeat in which he lost his WBA junior lightweight world title through the seventh-round TKO to mandatory challenger Rene Alvarado, a hunter he had eliminated in 2015.

Cancio (21-5-2, 16 KO & # 39; s), a hand hunter who has a full-time job as a construction engineer at the Southern California Gas Co., still wanted to thank trainer Joseph Janik and manager Ray Chaparro for a whirlwind year in which he one of the biggest problems in boxing scored by beating Alberto Machado twice and becoming world champion.

However, as soon as Cancio and his team met, Chaparro released career-changing news – Golden Boy Promotions dismissed Cancio from his contract two days after the hunter expressed concern at The Times about how the company handled his career.

Cancio criticized Golden Boy founder Oscar De La Hoya and his team for wanting to hear his underdog story on a wider audience and on multiple platforms in order to get a larger audience and therefore pay days, so he could leave his job at the gas company. Instead, Golden Boy provided a countermark and cut the hunter three days before Thanksgiving.

"This only shows how little I meant for them," Cancio said Tuesday. "If I had won, I know for sure that we would have solved things. But because I was on the wrong side of a victory that night, they just cut me. I'm a bit disturbed, but I have to stand up again."

Golden Boy matchmaker Robert Diaz called Chaparro on Sunday and said they were considering cutting off Cancio after hearing his comments. By Monday, Golden Boy sent an email announcing his release.

"We wish Andrew lots of luck and hope he can find what he missed here at Golden Boy with bigger money and bigger locations," Diaz said.

Cancio believes that the relationship with Golden Boy could have been restored, just as the company recently did with dissatisfied stars Canelo Alvarez and Ryan Garcia.

Cancio was further upset that he was denied the co-function slot on the Alvarez-Sergey Kovalev card on November 2 after Golden Boy had promised him the platform in Las Vegas. Instead, Golden Boy Garcia pacified at the request of Alvarez as soon as Garcia De La Hoya and his company started ripping. Cancio was further upset that his fights did not take place at larger locations instead of Indio & # 39; s Fantasy Springs Resort Casino, a place where he fought 12 times because of the 100-mile proximity to his hometown of Blythe.

Earlier this year, the once retired Cancio shocked former titlist Machado in February to win the crown he lost last week, and hit him again in June to prove it wasn't a fluke. Golden Boy, however, rejected Cancio's request for a rematch with Alvarado, another hunter they are promoting, and chose to give him a pink slip.

"I was a world champion who suffered a defeat and instead of giving me a rematch as they let me do to Machado, they just cut me," said Cancio. “I was an underdog who upset one of their boys, and they had no idea I could do it. I've been down before, and it will motivate me even more. "
