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

Gennady Golovkin

Unified middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin has accepted a deal for a rematch against Canelo Alvarez, with the fight scheduled to take place in September.

Promoter of Canelo Alvarez, Oscar De La Hoya, was the first to announce things a while ago.

The first bout in September 2017 ended in a controversial draw.

Alvarez returned a positive sample for trace levels of the decongestant Clenbuterol, which his promoter Golden Boy Promotions blamed on contaminated meat, and the Mexican was suspended for six months by the Nevada Athletic Commission in April.

Both sides have been locked in fierce negotiations in an attempt to revive the rematch, while Golovkin was stripped of his IBF title for failing to agree to a mandatory defence against Sergiy Derevyanchenko.

De La Hoya told Rafael the fight was "100 percent over", but as that was happening, Golden Boy President Eric Gomez was putting together a "Hail Mary idea" to break the deadlock.

The terms of the deal have not been disclosed, but may be a bit closer to a 55-45 split between Alvarez and Golovkin, and not the recent offer of 57.5% for Canelo and 42.5% for Golovkin.

"This is just the beginning", tweeted Golovkin following the announcement.
