'Canelo' Alvarez And Gennady Golovkin To Rematch On September 15th

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

Golden Boy founder Oscar De La Hoya, who promotes Alvarez, tweeted out that both sides have come to an agreement after much back and forth at the last minute, which included a brief period following the deadline where De La Hoya told ESPN "there is no fight".

Unified middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez have worked out a "Hail Mary" deal for a rematch on September 15, 2018 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, ESPN reports.

Should Alvarez beat Golovkin he will strip the 36-year-old of his world titles and become the No.1 middleweight in the division.

Tom Loeffler, Golovkin's promoter, gave credit to Eric Gomez, president of Golden Boy Promotions, which manages Alvarez, for coming up with a compromise. Most boxing experts believe Golovkin won the first fight.


With Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) free to fight once his six-month suspension ends in August, the two rivals had been expected to fight again in September.

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.

De La Hoya, who claimed Wednesday afternoon that Golovkin balked at their last offer and the fight was off, would announce the rematch on his Twitter account.

"In the first fight, it was a respectful promotion, but in the second fight, with the positive test and the way Gennady had to scramble to be able to fight on May 5, he is very edgy".
