Canelo: If Golovkin Trilogy Represents Business - Why Not?

Canelo Alvarez Alvarez is open to the idea of a trilogy fight with Gennady Golovkin - if it makes financial sense.

DAZN, who signed Canelo to an eleven fight deal in 2018, had pushed a for a Golovkin fight in September - but the Mexican superstar rejected that idea and instead made a decision to move up by two weight classes to light heavyweight, to pursue a fight with WBO world champion Sergey Kovalev.

Canelo collided with Kovalev on Saturday night and scored a sensational eleventh round knockout over the much bigger man.

When they met in 2017, Canelo and Golovkin fought to a controversial twelve round split draw.

In their 2018 rematch, Canelo won a close twelve round majority decision to hand Golovkin his first career defeat.

If the money makes sense, Canelo is open to a third battle - although he doesn't see GGG as a threat.

“It’s really not a challenge to me. We’ve fought 24 rounds and I beat him. It’s really not a challenge for me, but if it represents business, why not?,” Canelo said.

Another question is the weight class for a third encounter.

Canelo holds the WBA title at middleweight, the WBA "regular" title at super middleweight, and now the WBO title at 175-pounds.

There are many observers who doubt Canelo will return to the middleweight division - as he appeared to be pretty bulked up for the fight with Kovalev.

Golovkin currently holds the IBF's title at 160-pounds, but he's been open to the idea of going to super middleweight for the right fight.

Canelo's next ring return will likely take place in the month of May, during Cinco De Mayo weekend.
