Loeffler: Canelo Needs GGG Trilogy Fight

Gennady Golovkin’s promoter, Tom Loeffler, claims that not only will his fighter be willing to fight Canelo Alvarez in a trilogy fight, but that the current middleweight champion needs it more than Golovkin does.

Following a controversial 2017 draw, Alvarez would take a narrow majority decision win to become WBC and WBA middleweight champion of the world.

Now, with Alvarez signed to move up to super middleweight in the first of an 11-fight deal with DAZN, Loeffler still feels that Alvarez needs Golovkin in the ring one more time.

“Triple G is always up to fight Canelo. We feel that he beat him twice. There is no reason why he wouldn’t beat him a third time. We feel that Canelo needs Triple G more than Triple G needs Canelo, because Canelo still needs to prove to the fans that he beat him fair and square, not just on the judges’ scorecards,” Loeffler told ESPN Deportes.

“It was a great fight the first time, it was a better fight the second time and I think the third fight might even be the best fight. We’ll see, whatever we can work out. I’ve been in regular contact with [Canelo’s promoter] Golden Boy. We’ll see if we can work out a third fight.”
