The ‘year of boxing’ is coming along in fine fashion. Joshua, Klitschko, Mayweather, and many other top boxers have thrilled fans this year. Last week’s Golovkin-Alvarez matchup set the bar even higher. But the end result left a lot to be desired and stirred controversy. Naturally, calls for GGG vs Canelo rematch went out immediately.
A GGG vs Canelo Rematch
Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin put on a show that will remain in boxing fans’ memories for a long time.
Big hits, amazing defense and competitive spirit of the fighters blew the mind of fans in attendance at the T Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and millions of people watching at home.
The aftermath of the fight left more to be desired.
Everyone who saw the fight and was involved in the fight called for a rematch.
The fighters themselves were of the same opinion as well, because each wants to prove that he is the best middleweight boxer in the world.
Championship belts are also a good motivation.
According to sources, the discussion for the rematch has already begun between the promoters.
A fight between two of the best should have produced a clear winner and the fans are owed that result. This reason is why the people involved want to make the rematch happen as soon as possible.
If the two sides eventually come to an agreement, the match will not be able to take place anytime this year. It would be possible for 2018.
There will be some months of negotiations before any conclusion can be reached. Here is to hoping that the match does happen because it will be good for the sport of boxing.
Let’s also hope that all judges pay better attention to the fight.
