Boxing Match: Saul Alvarez will not fight Dmitry Bivol again right away, opting instead to defend his super-middleweight championships against Gennady Golovkin in September. Canelo and Golovkin first fought in 2017, with Alvarez winning on points a year later.
On September 17, Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez will defend his title as the undisputed ruler of the super-middleweight division in a trilogy battle against Gennady Golovkin.
WBA light-heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol defeated Alvarez earlier this month for only the second time in his 61-fight professional career.
However, the Mexican remains the WBC, WBA, IBF, and WBO super-middleweight champion and will fight Golovkin in that weight class rather than seek a rematch with Bivol right away.
With both prior fights contested at middleweight, Alvarez and Golovkin fought to a draw in 2017 before Canelo won their rematch on points in 2018, handing Golovkin his first loss.
Golovkin is the WBA and IBF middleweight champion, having won four straight fights since losing to Alvarez four years ago.
Alvarez said: “I feel very happy and proud to be able to give the best fights and this fight won’t be an exception.”
Golovkin added: “I hope to see you on September 17.”
No venue has yet been announced for the fight.
