Saul Canelo Alvarez has agreed to the rematch with IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO 160lb champion Gennady Golovkin for May 5. The fight contracts are close to being completed, according to the LA Times.

There is no rematch clause in the contract this time around, according to Canelo’s promoter Eric Gomez of Golden Boy Promotions. However, it is expected that a third fight between Canelo and Golovkin is going to very likely going to happen. Neither of these 2 fighters have any place to go that will bring them more money than they can get fighting each other.

The venue for the rematch has been narrowed down to 2 sites: T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and Madison Square Garden in New York. The T-Mobile is where the first Canelo-Golovkin fight was staged, and that fight ended in a 12 round draw. Some think Canelo was given a huge gift by 2 of the judges that scored it 118-110 for Canelo and 114-114. The last score would have made sense if not for that judge giving Canelo round 7, which was viewed by many as Golovkin’s best round of the fight.

“I know Canelo’s going to win. I think Canelo figured him out in the last three rounds,” said Golden Boy president Eric Gomez to the latimes.com. ”Look at that fight. Canelo handled [Golovkin] those last three rounds. And this time around, Canelo’s going to have an easier time with him. Not an easy fight, but he has the experience now and he wants this fight,” said Gomez.
