Updates from Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin
USA TODAY Sports’ Martin Rogers previews the historic rematch between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez on Sept. 15 in Las Vegas.
It all comes down to this.
After a controversial split draw last year, Canelo Alvarez (49-1-2) and Gennady Golovkin (38-0-1) are back in the ring on the strip in Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena to settle the score.
The rematch was supposed to take place over Cinco de Mayo weekend, but when Alvarez tested positive for a banned substance two months prior, it was moved to a day before the one-year anniversary of the first bout.
Since then, tensions have risen and tempers have flared — the two fighters had to be separated in their face-to-face appearance at Friday’s weigh-in — setting up a fight to be remembered.
