He was never canonized in the first place so you can not undo something that was never done to begin with. His cult was supressed many centuries ago by the pope. Canonization is considered an infalible act of the pope and can not be undone. However, a saint who was never formally canonized can be 'de-sainted' by having their cult supressed.
