Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is seeking a rematch with Gennady Golovkin. After fighting in Las Vegas, Nevada earlier this month, the fans are asking for a rematch. The fight ended in a draw by decision, but both sides thought they had they advantage. Canelo says he wants a rematch as a tie-breaker, and he wants it to be the first fight of 2018.
It appears as if the GGG team is open for the rematch, and it appears as if negotiations could be underway. Golovkin’s promoter commented on a potential rematch after the fight stating, “Fans are demanding the rematch. They want a clear winner, which we thought was GGG. But I think Gennady and Canelo owe the fans the rematch and, frankly, for the sport of boxing to right to the bad decision we saw last Saturday.”
They want the rematch, and we’ll see. I’m enjoying a vacation, enjoying what I did, but what I want is that it’s the first fight [of 2018]. I do not want to fight any other than the tiebreaker and that’s what we’re going to try to do; make it the first fight of the year for Canelo, to be the tiebreaker.
After the controversial decision, these two owe it to the fans to duke it out one more time. Only time will tell, but we can only hope that this fight ends in a KO.
