Canelo Open To The Idea of Third Golovkin Fight

Canelo Alvarez threw a Garden party on Saturday night. A short and powerful fiesta that gave the Mexican superstar a world title in a third weight division.

Alvarez landed dozens of body punches, knocking down Englishman Rocky Fielding four times and stopping him in the third round at Madison Square Garden to take the WBA super middleweight belt.

Coming off his close decision against Gennady Golovkin three months ago to win the WBA and WBC middleweight titles, Alvarez could hear chants of "Canelo! Canelo!" long before he entered the ring at the iconic New York venue for the first time.

Throughout a lengthy undercard, it was clear who the sellout crowd of 20,112 came to see and cheer.

He delivered with power and precision in the first fight of his five-year $365 million deal with sports streaming service DAZN as he became one of only nine Mexican fighters to have held titles in three weight divisions.

And Alvarez, 28, says he is headed back to the 160-pound class he rules, with possibly a third go with Golovkin in 2019.

If this was a one-off, it was quite a show.

Fielding, 31, won the WBA crown in July when he knocked out Tyron Zeuge in Germany in the fifth round. But the Englishman had never faced anyone close to Canelo's class, and it showed.

The fight ended with 22 seconds remaining in the third after two knockdowns in the round.

Canelo said he open to the idea of facing Golovkin for a third time - if there was some demand. Canelo will return to the ring in May.

"What I always want to do is make the best fights, whether they're for a world title or not. I've made great fights where it wasn't for a world title," Canelo said.

"Right now, what I can tell you is I want to make the best fights for the public. I felt that it [rivalry] ended on September 15, and I showed that I was the best, but there were two great fights, there's no secret. If the people want it, we can make it."

[QUOTE=kidbazooka;19379828]Yea that’s cool and you’re probably right we most likely m end up with canelo/ggg 3 but atleast it allows them to build it up bit more. I don’t mind a Marquez/Pac type thing here but not back to back…
