Saul “Canelo” Alvarez has had an incredibly long week. Over the course of ten days, he’s had to settle ring disputes with Billy Joe Saunders, call out Oscar De La Hoya and handle a few family issues. In the midst of all that has happened, Alvarez has made plans for the future.
Alvarez has hinted that he may be open to fighting Gennady Golovkin a third time. While the first two fights have taken place at middleweight, Alvarez insists that the third fight must take place at super middleweight.
“The truth is, I’m open for anything,” Alvarez answered when asked if he would fight Golovkin a third time.
Reporters pushed forth once Alvarez answered in that manner. Moving up to super middleweight would seemingly benefit Alvarez and hurt Golovkin. Alvarez is seemingly at his best while fighting at super middleweight while Golovkin started out at junior middleweight and has already moved up to middleweight. However, fighting at super middleweight may be Golovkin’s only option. After beating Kamil Szeremeta in December, Golovkin is still without a scheduled fight.
“Why wouldn’t he do it?” Alvarez asked.
In the immediate future, Alvarez must earn a win against Billy Joe Saunders. He is set to fight on Saturday, May 7 at AT&T Stadium.
