Gennady Golovkin vs. Canelo Alvarez Rematch Agreed to for May 5

Gennady Golovkin vs. Canelo Alvarez Rematch Agreed to for May 5

Golovkin was left fuming after their first fight ended in a controversial draw despite most believing the Kazakh won. The Cinco de Mayo weekend has traditionally been a preferred date for Mexican boxers, and Alvarez is the most prominent one around. Judge Adalaide Byrd came under fire after she scored it 118 to 110 in favor of Alvarez.

No details of a venue or what belts will be on the line have been revealed. Golovkin, 35, is 37-0-1 with 33 knockouts and now holds the IBF, IBO, WBA and WBC world middle weight titles.

"Canelo vs. Golovkin 2 will be boxing's biggest and best event of 2018 as these two elite fighters once again go head-to-head to determine who is the best middleweight in the world", Oscar De La Hoya, chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, said in a release.

"I didn't agree with some of the judges' decisions in the first fight", Golovkin added on Monday.

"This second fight is for the benefit and pleasure of all fans who desire to see the best fight the best".

Golden Boy Boxing tweeted the first promo for the fight with the caption "This time, they won't leave it up to the judges".

The Cinco de Mayo weekend date has always been a big boxing day, with Floyd Mayweather adopting it as his official annual fight date for years, and Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez has now taken that mantle.

"This is the fight the world wants".

"This time there will be no doubt".

But assuming Alvarez and Golovkin put on another action-packed show, it shouldn't be hard to get the two middleweight dynamos back in the ring for one final clash in 2019.

"This time, Golovkin won't have any excuses regarding the judges because I'm coming to knock him out".
