Eddy Reynoso, trainer of Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez, says the trilogy fight with Gennady Golovkin will take place at the middleweight limit of 160-pounds, where GGG holds the IBF world title.
Canelo still holds the WBC franchise, WBA titles at 160-pounds, and also holds the WBA "regular" title at super middleweight.
He was scheduled to face WBO super middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders on May 2, but the contest was postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Canelo may face Saunders in July - or he may go straight to a third fight with Golovkin.
In his last bout, Canelo moved up by two weight divisions to score a knockout of Sergey Kovalev last November, to capture the WBO light heavyweight title.
Canelo vacated the belt, as he intended to move down in weight gradually.
There is already a deal in place for Canelo to face Golovkin on September 12th.
Reynoso admits that Canelo's fight with Golovkin could likely become his final appearance at 160-pounds.
"We want to fight Golovkin at 160-pounds. We are going to see later if there is anything good that is left at 160, and if not, we are going to raise him to 168-pounds. Saúl has become more emboldened over the years, and at 168 we are going to make a lot of noise," Reynoso said to ESPN Deportes.
Reynoso commented that while they are no longer in camp, Canelo has been training in San Diego, California, and this will allow them to be ready for when professional boxing resumes, but they will also see how the industry reacts to make this happen.
“We have to put this whole issue together and afterwards see how the economy turns out.. there are many fighters who are sitting around without fighting and we have to see how they follow up on boxers who are lagging behind in terms of dates, let's see how all of this turns out," Reynoso concluded.
