According to Spanish-language boxing news source Notifight TV, it is possible that Mexican super star 🇲🇽 Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez would wage a 3rd war against Kazakh nemesis 🇰🇿 Gennady Golovkin on September 12. 👍👍
Canelo and Triple G battled two close 12-round clashes, and most boxing fans would more than welcome a blockbuster third installment, likely in Las Vegas live on DAZN.💥💥
A possible Canelo vs GGG 3 has not been officially announced.
However, according to ESPN, the Canelo vs. Saunders, and Canelo vs. Golovkin 3 are part of a two-fight deal between Canelo, Golden Boy Promotions and DAZN.
It has been widely reported that the 11-fight existing contract with DAZN is for USD 365 million dollars.
Nevertheless, for the hot Canelo vs Triple G 3 fight to materialize in September, the two star boxers will have to emerge victorious from their June fights.
Canelo (53-1-2, 36 KO’s) would have to dominate Billy Joe Saunders (29-0, 14 KO’s) in their 168 pounds match in Las Vegas in June.
For some fans, the Mexican Canelo might be a superior fighter than the unbeaten Briton world titlist Saunders. That remains to be seen.
Meanwhile, the popular Genady Golovkin (40-1-1, 35 KO’s) — who is the reigning world middleweight champion of the International Boxing Federation — is supposed to defend his red ‘n golden strap against undefeated mandatory challenger, Kamil Szeremeta (21-0, 5 KO’s) of Poland on June 6 at the The Forum in Inglewood, California, USA… provided that their fight would not be postponed due to you know what.
Canelo vs Triple G 3 would be one of the highlands of 2020 boxing calendar.
If Canelo and Golovkin slug it out again, May the Best Man Win. 🔥🔥
