Canelo Alvarez Vs. GGG Rematch Date Set After Crazy Day Of Negotiations

Gennady Golovkin

With the above Tweet, Oscar De La Hoya, head of Golden Boy Promotions announced Canelo Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin II, a rematch that seemed like it might not ever happen.

Alvarez and Golovkin originally fought to a highly controversial draw in September 2017, a fight that came under intense scrutiny due to scores turned in by often-lambasted judge Adalaide Byrd.

The rematch is set for September 15, that much we know.

Two Norwegian politicians nominate Trump for Nobel Peace Prize
The committee doesn't publicly comment on who was nominated, information which is required to be kept secret for 50 years. In 2009, the Nobel Peace Prize award to newly-elected US President Barack Obama was widely criticized as premature.

Alvarez has maintained his innocence throughout and has even reportedly signed up for complete Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency (VADA) testing to prove it.

The news will come as a blow to WBO champion Saunders, who had a deal in place to take on Golovkin at the end of August.

He has won 49 and drawn two of his 52 fights.

Wednesday's announcement comes a week after De La Hoya said that the talks for a rematch had ended and that Alvarez would likely fight Daniel Jacobs instead.

As it turned out, while De La Hoya was on the phone talking to ESPN, what was termed as a "Hail Mary" idea to save the fight was being discussed between Golden Boy president Eric Gomez and others involved in the fight and then communicated to Golovkin's team.

Loeffler told Yahoo! Sports on Wednesday that he believes a rematch will generate more interest than the first fight.

Polestar may be its own brand now, but it will also continue to act as the performance arm of Volvo for the foreseeable future. Volvo will introduce the next-generation S60 on June 20 during an event held at its new Charleston, South Carolina, factory.

"In the first fight, it was a respectful promotion, but in the second fight, with the positive test and the way Gennady had to scramble to be able to fight on May 5, he is very edgy".
