Good News For Those Hoping For A Possible Canelo vs Golovkin 3 Fight In 2019

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin are poised to step back into the ring for an eagerly awaited trilogy showdown, after it was revealed talks are ongoing.

Now it has emerged on ESPN 97.5 Houston radio that early talks for a trilogy in 2019 have started.

Canelo, who De La Hoya promotes, is scheduled to return to the ring on May 4th, Cinco De Mayo weekend, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas - the venue where they collided on two previous occasions.

'Canelo is open to anything.

"We're starting discussions, and we'll see where it leads from there", he added.

Looks like [Golovkin] does not want Canelo anymore.

The fate of a third Canelo fight likely sits on this decision.

Carlos Ghosn being held in 'draconian' conditions, wife claims
Carole Ghosn said her husband had lost nearly seven pounds (3kg) in weight and prosecutors "browbeat him" to get a confession. More than 99% of criminal cases in Japan end in a conviction, with most secured through confessions.

The two men exchanged some huge shots in both fights that would have stopped lesser men and Alvarez ended up inflicting GGG's first and only professional loss to date in the 2018 fight.

However, Gomez may only be making this claim because he wants Golovkin to accept a smaller purse for the fight.

Oscar De La Hoya, of Golden Boy Promotions, admitted discussions are developing between the parties to arrange the boxing spectacle. Prefers easy (fights) as before. "We will see friends".

GGG hasn't fought since his loss to Alvarez in September a year ago whilst Canelo has gone on to add the WBA (regular) super middleweight titles, to the WBA (Super), WBC, The Ring and lineal middleweight titles he already had, by beating Rocky Fielding.

The knockout win against the Brit was also Canelo's first under his 11-fight, £300million deal with sports streaming service DAZN.

Canelo signed with DAZN past year in a record breaking deal and it seemed we might not see a third fight materialise however with HBO no longer covering boxing, GGG is in a position where he can sign with a new promoter/TV company.
