On Thursday, Canelo Alvarez indicated he wasn’t opposed to facing Gennadiy Golovkin for a third fight. Alvarez is ready to take up the fight after he finishes the current task of unifying the super middleweight division.
Alvarez said, “The truth is I’m open for anything. If the fight happens after unifying at 168 pounds, I’m open to anything. But it would be at 168 pounds. I’ve done a lot, I’ve fought a lot of good fighters, a lot of champions. I’ve beat him, and I think that everything else will leave the legacy of my career.”
Both of their previous fights have been at the middleweight limit of 160 pounds. But the stipulation, however, is that Golovkin moves up to the 168-pound division.
In 2017, the two men fought to a very controversial draw that many observers believe Golovkin should have won. Alvarez won the rematch in a split decision. Golovkin has beaten every pro fighter he has faced except for Alvarez. He repeatedly asked for a third fight with Alvarez after the controversial decisions in their two previous bouts.
Alvarez said Golovkin moving up one weight class must happen for the fight to be a possibility. He said, “If he wants the fight with me, he has to do it. Why wouldn’t he do it? I went up from 154 to 160 to fight with him.”
Throughout the buildup for this weekend’s bout against Saunders, Alvarez has maintained that he wants to become the unified champion in the 168-pound division. If the favored Alvarez wins, he will pursue a September bout against unbeaten IBF champ Caleb
While the Kazakh fighter appears to be Alvarez’s legacy-defining rival, the Mexican champion disagrees with the notion that their fights will be what most remember about Alvarez when he eventually retires.
