When can we expect Canelo Alvarez back in the ring?

Boxing - news

Canelo Alvarez fans will be waiting for him again in the ring this year. Golden Boy Promotions are planning a meeting on December 15th at Madison Square Garden - New York, "said Robert Diaz.

Alvarez has only one match this year, a meeting in which he defeated Gennady Golovkin and won the WBC and WBA titles in the middleweight category, through a referee decision. The meeting was very close, as the judges showed their score cards after the match. Definitely for all boxing fans, the 3rd match between the two will be extremely interesting, but it is unlikely to take place before December.

The other world titles will be defended by their owners in October, which means that in the next 3 months Canelo will not be able to come up against them.

The Mexican remains one of the greatest stars in boxing and sports, and as his rival for defending his titles is the name of Devid Lemieux. The Canadian knocked Gary O'Sullivan the same evening, shortly before the meeting of Gennady and Canelo.

The re-match match with Golovkin was the first fight in 2018 for Alvarez. In February, Canelo's doping results were positive and he received a six-month penalty from the control authorities.
