Gomez Claims GGG Needs To Accept Old Offer
While there is an impasse between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez’ teams regarding a September 15th rematch, Golden Boy Promotions President Eric Gomez believes there is an option to save the fight.
“If Golovkin steps back on his new financial demands – and embraces what he accepted for May 5 – then the rematch can happen, says Gomez this week.
“To promote a great event it takes time and they wasted six weeks already. At this moment there is no possibility of Canelo-GGG 2,” said Gomez to ESPN Deportes .
Gomez has given Golovkin and his promoter Tom Loeffler a chance to walk back their current financial demands, but if not “Saul has a lot of options,” said the Golden Boy President. There’s Daniel Jacobs, Billy Joe Saunders, who will defend in June, but they’re willing to fight; we already talked to Frank Warren, (Jermall) Charlo, obviously (David) Lemieux, (Gary) O’Sullivan.”
“Golovkin, however, has a choice, [fight Canelo or] make the mandatory with the Russian (Sergiy Derevyanchenko) who has 12 fights… if that’s what he wants to do; to fight with an opponent that nobody knows.”
