Canelo Alvarez wants to box Charlo instead of Golovkin
Saul Canelo Alvarez has once again downplayed the chance of sharing the ring with Gennady Golovkin again. Instead, he wishes to take on WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo.
Controversy erupted on both occasions GGG and Canelo fought. The first fight ended in a draw, whereas the Mexican champion sneaked to a victory on decision in the rematch. Two judges scored 115-113 in favor of the 30-year-old while the third judge scored 114-114.
But since then, Canelo has been reluctant to have the final trilogy fight with his Kazakh colleague.
While being interviewed by DAZN, the Mexican boxer affirmed that he would choose to fight Charlo if he has the option to choose from GGG or the WBC middleweight champion.
If GGG and Canelo ever agree to fight for the third time, they are bound to generate loads of money, something that DAZN has been eagerly waiting for since roping both boxers in for lucrative nine-figure contracts several years ago.
Canelo last fought and defeated Billy Joe Saunders in May in Arlington, Texas. The 30-year-old won the fight with ease, leaving Saunders hurt with his stinging haymakers as the fight was put to a stop in the eighth round.
