Saul “Canelo” Alvarez’s promoter Oscar De La Hoya is looking forward to Canelo’s September 16 match against middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs).

This isn’t all that De La Hoya is looking forward to. He is already thinking far beyond the September 16 Canelo-GGG fight to a rematch and then a trilogy. Unfortunately, the 26-year-old Canelo is not on board with De La Hoya in wanting to fight GGG three times.

Canelo says he’s only interested in fighting the Kazakhstan fighter once and that’s it. Canelo says he wants to make the fight so conclusive when he fights Gennady that there won’t be any need for a second and third fight between them.

Canelo might be better off if he only fight Golovkin once, because he is expecting to punish the Kazakhstan. But, if Canelo gets beaten up two or three times by Golovkin, his career could wind up being shortened drastically.

“No, there’s only going to be one,” Alvarez said via the “That’s how dominant I feel I’m going to be.”

‘I want to fight the best,” said Canelo. “We’re now weeks away from this fight. I’m very, very excited, somewhat obsessed. “My team and I have come to the conclusion that this is 14 years of hard work that’s going to pay off on Sept. 16,” he said.
