Boxing News: The two most famous middleweight boxers, Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin will compete a third time, by the end of 2020.
Boxing is also under Corona Virus (Covid-10) control
The official boxing time of the match has not been fixed by the influence of Covid-19, but it will take place after Canelo Alvarez fights with Billy Joe Saunders, in the WBA Super belt match at super middleweight (76kg).
Earlier, Canelo and Saunders had agreed to fight on May 2 in Las Vegas, but this match is currently delayed. According to The Athletic, if this match is not delayed much, Canelo and Gennady Golovkin can face September 12 at the AT&T arena, Dallas, as the previous verbal agreement.
In the middle-class boxing village, Canelo is the most concerned boxer. After winning against Golovkin, he signed a $ 365 million contract with DAZN, with a deal of 11 matches in 5 years for the company.
The boxing match against Saunders is the fourth time that Canelo is in the ring, under contract with DAZN. If won, the Mexican punch would be the world champion in four weight classes, including light middleweight (70kg), middleweight (73kg), super middleweight (76kg), and light heavyweight (79kg).
However, Canelo currently owns only two belts, WBA Super middleweight class and WBO light heavyweight. The middleweight WBC belt he ceded to this organization to become the “franchise champion”. The middleweight IBF, which was won by Daniel Jacobs in May 2019, was stripped because Canelo’s team was out of contract with Sergiy Derevyanchenko, the fighter appointed by IBF to challenge him.
This IBF belt is now in the hands of Golovkin. The Kazakh boxer won after winning Derevyanchenko in October 2019. This is the second time “Triple G” owns this title. He held it from October 2015 to May 2018, before being stripped for not holding a title match, as designated by the IBF, in order to have time to play Canelo again in September.
A promising rematch of these two boxers
Both Canelo and Golovkin are both men of DAZN, but in the agreement with the online video streaming service, only Golovkin’s contract has a clause to host a third match with a Mexican rival. According to ESPN, this is an excuse for Canelo to ask for $ 35 million to fight with Golovkin.
Golovkin joined DAZN later than Canelo. He signed in early 2019, with a three-year contract with six matches. The amount of 37-year-old boxer received less than Canelo, but reached $ 100 million. The third showdown between Canelo and Golovkin, respectively, is the fifth and fourth match for the two boxers.
Golovkin is currently preparing for the IBF match, before Kamil Szeremeta. According to the boxing original schedule, the match was held on February 29, but is now delayed because of Covid-19. ESPN said the Kazakh boxer once intended to take this game to his home town, but gave up on it later due to a calf injury. You can be in the stage on June 27.
