Tom Loeffler, promoter for Gennady Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs), says a rematch with Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) is the priority for them.
This past Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the two boxers went to a controversial twelve round split draw.
Given the draw verdict, Golovkin walked away with his WBC, WBA, IBF, IBO middleweight titles.
Golovkin would like to fight again in December, but he's willing to put that plan on hold if Canelo is ready and willing to do a rematch in May, as part of Cinco De Mayo weekend.
"Gennady wants to fight before May but, if they commit to a rematch, we'll have to see if that makes sense. We can't put Gennady's career on hold but [a rematch] is the priority," Loeffler exclusively told Sky Sports.
"Gennady wants a rematch because this left an unsatisfied taste. Canelo said he won't fight until May but we have to see if he wants a rematch."
If and when a rematch takes place, Loeffler would love to see the fight take place in Dallas, Texas. He believes the second fight would pack in 100,000 fans at the venue. The T-Mobile Arena, which holds 20,000, was sold out last Saturday. For a rematch, he feels Dallas should be considered as the top option before exploring alternatives like going back to Las Vegas.
Loeffler wants to recreate the wild atmosphere from April, when 90,000 fans packed Wembley in London to watch Anthony Joshua stop Wladimir Klitschko in eleven rounds to unify the IBF, IBO, WBA heavyweight titles.
"If there's a rematch Dallas should be at the top of the list," Loeffler said. "But Madison Square Garden made an offer [for the first fight] that would have been a record gate for New York.
"After seeing the tremendous atmosphere at Wembley Stadium [for Anthony Joshua-Wladimir Klitschko] I was always a fan of going to the AT&T Stadium where we could have sold 100,000 tickets."
