GGG Willing To Have A 55-45 Split For Canelo

Following his being stripped of the IBF welterweight title, Gennady Golovkin has restarted negotiations with Canelo Alvarez.

In a report from ESPN, Golovkin’s promoter Tom Loeffler has acknowledged that his fighter has stepped back from a demand of a 50-50 split of the money..

“Gennady has agreed to come off his 50-50 demand,” Loeffler added to ESPN. “Gennady wants the rematch with Canelo regardless of what Oscar says. He always wanted the fight with Canelo.

“He will come down to 55-45, which makes Canelo the A side. It will be Canelo making 55 percent in a rematch against GGG, which will be much bigger than the first fight was for sure. The rematch with GGG is his biggest fight by far and Gennady’s biggest fight. That’s the fight we want.”

“I’m not negotiating with Oscar. I’m negotiating with Eric Gomez,” Loeffler said to ESPN, as De La Hoya claimed that the negotiations were dead in the water. “I spoke to Eric [on Wednesday] and he’s going to go to Oscar and Canelo and see if they can get something done.”

“I just spoke to Tom a little bit ago,” Gomez said on Wednesday. “I told him I am going to be speaking to Oscar about it, and then we will talk to Canelo. We’ll see what happens.”
