Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions says that the greater part of the transaction indicates have been concurred for a battle between IBF/IBO/WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and Golden Boy Promotions previous two-division belt holder Saul “Canelo” Alvarez for a battle this September. Loeffler says that if both contenders win their next battles, they could be confronting each other not long from now.
Eric Gomez, the leader of Golden Boy, as of late communicated confidence that the Canelo-Golovkin battle will get made for the current year if both folks win their next battles. Golovkin confronts Daniel Jacobs (32-1, 29 KOs) on March 18 on HBO PPV. Canelo will be battling previous WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (50-2-1, 32 KOs) on May 6 on HBO PPV.
While those are both extreme battles, Canelo and Golovkin are relied upon to win them and meet in the not so distant future unless something comes up that keeps the user battle from occurring. One thing that could stop the Canelo-Golovkin battle from happening is if the Canelo versus Chavez Jr. battle is an energising one and is exceptionally aggressive. Golden Boy CEO Oscar De La Hoya said as of late that he may make a rematch amongst Canelo and Chavez Jr. in September if their battle in May ends up being an energising match. A misfortune for Canelo in May would clearly be another motivation behind why a rematch with Chavez Jr. would be basic for September.
“It’s obviously the greatest test for Gennady and Danny,” said Loeffler to secondsout.com. “This will be Gennady’s fifth battle at the Garden. Danny’s from Brooklyn and has an incredible after. Gennady is 100 percent centred around March eighteenth. For me, it’s so difficult to get folks inside the ring to battle Gennady. I’m looking forward 2 to 3 stages. I’ve been conversing with Golden Boy Promotions president Eric Gomez since November. Much the same as Eric says, it looks positive. From our side, it would appear that it’ll occur in September. It would have happened a year ago. It was dependent upon Gennady, yet that is a colossal battle. On the off chance that it can happen this year, it’s extraordinary, however first Gennady needs to beat Daniel Jacobs and Canelo must beat Chavez Jr. You can never prepare. They’re both unsafe battles. On the off chance that they’re both successful, that will be touted as the greatest battle in the game of boxing. Gennady needs to battle four times each year. Contingent upon what occurs in March, we’ll see what occurs with the Canelo battle. It would be slated for September. On the off chance that there’s something we can do in the middle of, you never know. Gennady is centred around Danny Jacobs. You can keep in mind Danny. He’s obviously Gennady’s hardest battle and Danny’s hardest rival. We would be hoping to make another battle, better believe it,” said Loeffler in talking in regards to a potential battle against somebody after the March 18 battle against Jacobs.
