Gomez Says Canelo-GGG III Must Happen

With both fighters signed to nine-figure deals with the same platform, many expect Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin to fight one more time.

Even though many signs point to a September showdown between two of the elite middleweights in the sport, Alvarez muddled up the chances by claiming GGG must have a belt for their to be a trilogy fight.

Now, it seems that tune has changed, at least according to Golden Boy Promotions President Eric Gomez.

“It has to happen,” Gomez told Sky Sports. “Both fights were great fights, the first two fights, and he’s got no problem fighting him again.”

Golovkin feels he was robbed in both fights, and has made significant changes to his team, including the firing of his longtime trainer and mentor Abel Sanchez. Golovkin will make his DAZN debut on June 8th, when he faces Canadian Steve Rolls at Madison Square Garden.

“I think there’s an equal desire,” Gomez added. “Golovkin is a fighter that also believes in history and he’s got a lot of pride. He can’t retire without having one more crack at Canelo.

“That’s what has made Golovkin a great champion, is that he also wants to fight the best and he’s got that inner fire in him that won’t let him rest until he has at least one more chance to prove that he can beat Canelo.”
