According to Gennady Golovkin's trainer, Abel Sanchez, Canelo Alvarez, should he defeat Amir Khan on May 2, must formally agree to face 'GGG' this fall or relinquish his WBC-sponsored middleweight belt.
Don’t be surprised if Canelo vs Golovkin, arguably the biggest fight in boxing, doesn’t happen in 2016, despite the WBC’s edict and the wishes of fight fans.
Businessman, boxing fan and owner of the NFL's Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones is lobbying to host Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin vs Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez.
Although the WBC has ordered middleweight champions Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin to meet by the end of 2016, it may not happen this year.
Fresh off impressive victories in back-to-back weeks, Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin are two of the hottest fighters in boxing and may eventually face each other next year in a colossal Cinco de Mayo weekend showdown.
