Alvarez avoids Golovkin

Boxing - news

A few days ago it became clear that the way to the 3rd meeting between Saul Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin will be quite long.

From recent press conferences, Golovkin will have to come out against Jermall Charlo, and he will be one of his next opponents on his way to the 3rd Alvarez fight.

Golovkin's promoter Tom Loeffler said Canelo remains a leading opponent for Golovkin and will do his best to make this meeting as soon as possible.

"We're just looking for a new opportunity for GGG to go out in the ring for our titles, and we think that's more than right, and the 3rd meeting means the biggest battle for both of them. I talked to Eric Gomez several times. They are extremely interested because they were also the best paydays of those two meetings in Canelo and GGG's careers, and this happens exactly when you have the two best athletes in this sport - they do not oppose so much at the 3rd meeting but everything depends on the time frame. The two boxers will take a short break and they will start working again. " said Loeffler

He is, of course, right, and the 3rd match between Canelo and Golovkin is all that fans and boxing are waiting for, but if that does not happen, Golovkin will have to come out against Charlo, one of the emerging American rising stars in boxing, but is not a good alternative.
