Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez are finally set to enter the ring at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for their highly-anticipated rematch on Saturday, Sept. 15. The bout will be for the WBA (Super), WBC, and IBO & vacant The Ring Magazine Middleweight Titles. In their first meeting in September 2017, the two men fought to a controversial split draw. Judge Adalaide Byrd scored the bout 118-110 in favor of Canelo, while Dave Moretti favored Golovkin 115-113 and Don Trella scored the bout even at 114-114.
Almost immediately following the first bout, negotiations began for the rematch.
The rematch was initially set to take place on March 5, 2018, but Canelo failed two random drug tests in February. Canelo had tested positive for the banned substance clenbuterol which led to the fight being postponed. The Nevada Athletic Commission handed Canelo a six-month suspension before ultimately rescheduling the fight for Sept. 15.
In the co-main event of the pay-per-view card is a WBO junior middleweight championship bout between Jaime Munguia and Brandon Cook, while David Lemieux, Gary O’Sullivan, Román “Chocolatito” González, and Moises Fuentes are also set to compete.
