Canelo-GGG 3 In 2020?
New IBF middleweight champion of the world Gennadiy Golovkin will return in early 2020, as Eddie Hearn charts a course for a fight with mandatory challenger Kamil Szeremeta in February or March.
And while that fight is next on the docket for Golovkin, Hearn is looking to revive negotiations with Golden Boy Promotions to set up a May trilogy fight against Canelo Alvarez.
Alvarez has been staunch in his stance of not needing to fight Golovkin for a third time after defeating him for the unified middleweight championships in 2018, but following his win over Sergey Kovalev this month the Mexican superstar inferred that the right offer may pique his interest.
“I fought him for 24 rounds and beat him already. He’s not a challenge to me anymore,” Alvarez told BoxingScene.com in an interview.
“Absolutely money is the most important thing [for fighting Golovkin again]. If they can present a good offer to me on the business side, we’ll see. I’m very happy, of course, [to be boxing’s power player.]”
