De La Hoya: I Don't Think Anything Can Stop Canelo-GGG Deal

By Miguel Rivera

If Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin reach an agreement to fight again, Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya is targeting Las Vegas as the hosting ground for the fight - despite obvious offers that are going to come in from New York City and Texas.

Golovkin and Canelo collided back in September, when they fought to a controversial twelve round split draw at Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena.

"I'm going to Canada this week, this fight (Saturday between David Lemieux and Billy Joe Saunders for the WBO middleweight title) is quite important because there will be another challenger for Canelo or Golovkin, so Lemieux-Saunders is a very interesting fight in the middleweight," De La Hoya told ESPN Deportes.

The winner of Saunders-Lemieux will be an option, but De La Hoya says Golovkin is without question the top candidate to face Canelo on the Cinco De Mayo date of May 5th.

"The world is waiting for the rematch. For us, for Canelo, that's the first option. I don't think anything can stop that fight - Canelo wants the fight, Golovkin wants the fight, it's just negotiations and I'm confident that we can do a good deal with GGG's promoter," De La Hoya stated.

And once that deal comes together, it more than likely will come right back to the T-Mobile Arena.

"Personally and obviously we have contracts in place, the fight has to be made in Las Vegas due to the fact that you have the entertainment factor. It is also difficult [for a lot of locations] to host an event like this because there are not enough hotels in Dallas, for example, or hotels to see the fight on closed circuit is a big factor.. all of the entertainment for the tourists who travel to Las Vegas, there are restaurants, shows, Las Vegas is our number one option," De La Hoya said.
