Canelo Alvarez Vs. GGG Rematch Date Set After Crazy Day Of Negotiations

Oscar De La Hoya Confirms Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin Fight Rematch

If that happens, Golden Boy also will have to increase its offer to Jacobs to make that fight for September 15 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Unified middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin has accepted a deal for a rematch against Canelo Alvarez, with the fight scheduled to take place in September. His promoter, Tom Loeffler, told the Los Angeles Times that the deal was dead following Wednesday's deadline because GGG "stuck to his principles".

There was no word on Wednesday about the details of the agreement or even if a contract has been signed.

Who's everyone backing in the second meeting - "Canelo" or Golovkin?

Alvarez and Golovkin originally fought to a highly controversial draw in September 2017, a fight that came under intense scrutiny due to scores turned in by often-lambasted judge Adalaide Byrd.

A May 5, 2018 rematch was canceled when Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) failed two drug tests for the performance-enhancing drug clenbuterol.

As it turned out, while De La Hoya was on the phone talking to ESPN, what was termed as a "Hail Mary" idea to save the fight was being discussed between Golden Boy president Eric Gomez and others involved in the fight and then communicated to Golovkin's team.

Golovkin's WBA (super) and WBC world titles will be on the line.

"It's a much bigger fight with all the controversy that has gone on and no love lost between the guys", Loeffler said. "Canelo is very edgy, so I think that's going to get things heated up".
