Golovkin: Canelo Rematch is a Priority For September

By Miguel Rivera

Gennady Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs), the current world middleweight champion of the World Boxing Council (WBC), World Boxing Association (WBA), International Boxing Organization (IBO) and International Boxing Federation (IBF), said that a rematch against Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) is his priority for September.

Golvokin and Canelo were scheduled to fight against on May 5th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The event was canceled when Canelo withdrew from the contest, because he was suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for testing positive for the banned substance clenbuterol.

Canelo received a six month suspension and plans to fight again in September - which may or may not be against Golovkin.

"[The rematch with Canelo] is the biggest fight in the world, the one with the greatest benefit (economically) for the fighters and everyone involved, I'm ready for that date, if the fight is made," Golovkin said in a conference call carried with the Mexican press and the World Boxing Council.

"Canelo is the priority and that is what he aims for, [to fight in] September but I understand that there are also other fighters like Jermall Charllo and Billy Joe Saunders but I am focused on the fight on May 5 and then we'll see what happens with Alvarez. Everyone wants that fight, everyone knows that and I am ready for September."

After Canelo fell out, then Golovkin finalized a deal to fight Vanes Martirosyan, on May 5, at StubHub Center in Carson, California.

"Martirosyan is a different boxer, he is taller and has a different style than Canelo, but I am prepared to give a great show, to give the public what they want to see, and they will see a Golovkin with the Mexican style," said Golovkin.

At the conference, the president of the WBC, Mauricio Sulaiman presented the Tzeltal belt - which the sanctioning body will award to the winner of the fight on May 5. On the plate of the belt stands out the phrase "BATS'IL AJAW CHIAPAS", which means "true hero."

Forget Canelo, that tainted ship has sailed. Golovkin should face either BJS or Jarmall Charlo, after they scrape Martirosyan's remains off the canvas.

I really think this is the biggest payday for Canelo and since he just lost a payday he'll likely go for it. He doesn't have a lot to lose. Mostly everyone thought he lost the last fight. If he loses…
