Canelo-GGG III Happens When ‘Both are 65’
After their second encounter in September 2018, and after Gennadiy Golovkin signed with DAZN earlier this year, it looked like a trilogy bout with him and Canelo Alvarez would be a reality. These days, however, it feels like such a fight won’t happen at all.
DAZN, in fact, attempted to make the trilogy bout recently, but Alvarez elected to face a deemed appropriate substitute, WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev, in an attempt to win a championship in a third weight class.
GGG, meanwhile, will fight Sergiy Derevyanchenko for the vacant IBF middleweight championship tonight.
Golovkin’s team, including trainer Johnathon Banks, feels Canelo and his team are waiting for both men to get older before a third fight happens.
“Man, as of right now I don’t think nobody can see it happening,” Banks told Omnisport. “And if it does happen, it happens when they’re both 65 years old. That way [Golovkin] won’t be able to hit so hard.”
