Gennady Golovkin's Promoter on The Canelo Rematch Clause

By Steve Kim

So will there be a rematch between Gennady Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) and Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) after their highly disputed draw this past weekend at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas?

While there was a rematch clause in place, it was held by Alvarez and Golden Boy in the event of a Golovkin victory.

But while the fight ended in a dead heat, the action inside the ring was good and the promotion was well-received the public.


Much of the post-fight attention has fallen on the scorecard issued by judge Adalaide Byrd - who had it 118-110 for Canelo. The other two scorecards saw 115-113 for Golovkin and 114-114 for the draw. In response to the public fury over Byrd's scorecard, the Nevada State Athletic Commission is planning to bench her from scoring high profile fights for the moment.

So is there any chance of an immediate rematch between the two?

"I haven't really spoken to them outside of just being on the podium at the press conference," said Golovkin's promoter, Tom Loeffler, in a recent talk with "So I'll sit down with Eric (Gomez, the president of Golden Boy Promotions). I'm going to reach out to him today and see what direction they want to go into.

"I know (Miguel) Cotto is with Golden Boy said that he wanted to fight the winner of 'Triple G' and 'Canelo' and so Gennady is still a champion, he still has all the titles and everyone thought he was the winner. So we'll see what direction they want to get into."

There were plans for Golovkin to fight again in early December if he would've come out victorious versus Alvarez. Now it's not clear what direction everyone involved will go.

"Naturally, the rematch with 'Canelo' will be even bigger because of the controversy of the first fight," stated Loeffler.

[QUOTE=Lemonhead_Jeff;18131157]That reply was absolutely perfect. *Spits-out my gum and slaps it in mid-air* No, but really, you're right that Golovkin has stepped-up his competition, but the timing was not great since most would agree that he's beginning to slip. You…

"In response to the public fury over Byrd's scorecard, the Nevada State Athletic Commission is planning to bench her from scoring high profile fights for the moment." Byrd couldn't score a bowling match properly.
