It was through his social networks that he announced that on September 17, 2022 he will face Guennadi Guennadievich Golovkin, better known as GGG, with the venue still to be defined.
GGG is a known rival of Canelo, with which it has been previously measured. The 2004 Athens Olympic medalist for Kazakhstan tied in 2017 with Jalisco and in 2018 he was defeated by the redhead.
Although the Bivol issue is still present in the conversations, Álvarez had to respond to the press.
“Unfortunately we lost, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to try again,” he declared regarding his recent defeat yesterday during a press conference in Guadalajara.
I am very happy to bring you the best fights and this will be no exception. #CaneloGGG3 this September 17th 👊🏻🇲🇽 Headquarters to be confirmed.

However, the champion’s pride is hurt, so next on the list is the rematch against the Russian, after his loss in Las Vegas by unanimous decision, stated that he would look for a second chance to be crowned champion at 175 pounds.
“Obviously nobody likes to lose, personally I am a very competitive person who always likes to win. Nobody likes to lose and it is a very ugly feeling (…) We tried to move up in weight, win another championship at 175 poundsit was not achieved and as I said, That doesn’t mean I won’t try again”, so the fight against Bivol is only on hold.
“We already had that contract to continue with machroom Y DAZNso we have to continue what we started and I think the two most important fights in boxing right now: the fight with Golovkin and the rematch with Bivol,” he confirmed.
