Canelo-GGG to meet for highly anticipated rematch in September

Oscar De La Hoya Confirms Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin Fight Rematch

Canelo Alvarez and unified middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin finalized an agreement Wednesday to square off in a rematch September 15 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

"The deal is done", Golden Boy Boxing tweeted out, saying in a hashtag that the two men will fight September 15. Moments after speaking at length with ESPN about there not being a deal and saying that negotiations were "100 percent over", one of De La Hoya's associates called ESPN back. Negotiations still were ongoing.

Golden Boy chief Oscar De La Hoya even claimed it was off.

Furthermore, all parties are now happy and it looks like at long last, nearly a year in the making, we will get to see one of boxing's most anticipated rematches.

Patty Jenkins Reveals Huge Surprise As Production Begins On ‘Wonder Woman 1984’
There's going to be an very bad lot of explaining to do when Wonder Woman 2 hits theaters as to how Trevor is back in action. Jenkins shared a first look at the star from the sequel, which will hit theaters on November 1, 2019.

The two were initially set for a rematch in May, but the fight was put on hold after Alvarez failed a drug test, which he blamed on spoiled meat. Many believe Golovkin won the fight, but Adalaide Byrd somehow scored the fight 118-110 in favor of Alvarez.

The pair first got in the ring in September a year ago for what was billed as a clash between two of the world's best pound-for-pound fighters. "I got off the phone (on Tuesday afternoon) with Tom Loeffler and told him you have 24 hours to accept or we are fighting Danny Jacobs". Golovkin backed off and said he would consider 55-45, and the sides continued to talk. The contract was never signed and after Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs) had second thoughts, he walked away from the deal, according to media reports.

When the deadline came and went, no deal was made at that point. We bent over backward. Golovkin demanded a 50-50 split. Nothing has ever been simple between the two fighters, but on Wednesday they appeared to clear the biggest hurdle for a rematch fight fans have been itching to see. We were going to proceed with a Billy Joe Saunders fight.
