Canelo Álvarez Discusses Plans to Fight Gennady Golovkin and Rematch Dmitry Bivol

Shortly after his stunning loss to Dmitry Bivol, Canelo Álvarez has now announced his upcoming plans in the ring. The superstar boxer from Guadalajara revealed that his next fight will be a trilogy match with Gennady Golovkin. The bout will see Álvarez move back down to the Super-Middleweight weight class with his World Boxing Association, World Boxing Council, International Boxing Federation, and World Boxing Organization world titles on the line.

Following the trilogy fight, Canelo Álvarez is then setting his sights on a rematch with Dmitry Bivol. Earlier this month, Bivol won by decision against Álvarez, in the fighter's return to the Light Heavyweight division. The fight saw Álvarez lose for the second time in his entire career, with the first time being against Floyd Mayweather back in September 2013.

The trilogy fight between Canelo Álvarez and Gennady Golovkin is now expected to take place September 17.

In case you missed it, UFC legend Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone recently announced his plans to retire after two more fights.
