Golovkin v Saunders chances diminish as Canelo talks re-open

The tortured attempt to get a boxing rematch between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin off the ground has hit its latest and perhaps most fatal sticking point, with ESPN's Dan Rafael reporting that negotiations have broken down to the point where Alvarez is looking for someone else to fight in September, when his six-month doping suspension ends.

Hearn and De La Hoya both told ESPN.com they want to complete an agreement quickly.

"So there's a deal on the table for Daniel Jacobs to fight September 15 against Canelo", De La Hoya said.

De La Hoya said he had Golden Boy Promotions president Eric Gomez contact Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn, Jacobs' promoter, on Tuesday afternoon to start negotiating the fight. "So we're just moving forward and making sure that Canelo has the toughest dance partner possible for Sept 15".

The on-again, off-again rematch between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golvkin for middleweight supremacy is off once more, and this time, it appears it's for good. "If he feels that's what it's going to take for him to fight Canelo again, then I think it's his choice". "Now this will hang over his head for who knows how long".

"Gennady has made it perfectly clear what he wants", Sanchez told the Times regarding a 50-50 split for a rematch. That's a lot of fights for someone who's only 27 years old.

Jacobs, who signed an HBO-exclusive deal with Hearn a year ago, is 2-0 since a competitive decision loss to Golovkin in March 2017.

Ferris, who retired in 2014, said on Twitter: "Confirmed that my old Ulster team mate Paddy Jackson has signed for Perpignan ". Jackson's move to Perpignan comes less than two weeks after Olding joined French team Brive .

Golovkin beat Vanes Martirosyan as a replacement opponent on May 5 at the T-Mobile Arena.

Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) hasn't fought since the split-decision draw against Golovkin in Las Vegas.

"What people are not understanding is I am not going to come off my demands for the rematch", De La Hoya said.

Golovkin trainer Abel Sanchez told Behind the Gloves on Sunday that his fighter is just as willing to walk away if the numbers don't work.

De La Hoya has spoken out of turn in the past, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Tom Loeffler and Eric Gomez announce something different in a day or two.

"He will come down to 55-45, which makes Canelo the A side".
