Negotiations have already begun for an immediate rematch between middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and Saul “Canelo Alvarez for next May in 2018, according to ESPN. If an agreement can get made, then both fighters would stay out of the ring for the remainder of the year until they fight each other next May on HBO pay-per-view.

Their last Saturday night title bout ended in controversy after the much anticipated match ended in draw.

Canelo, 27, will be exercising the rematch clause in his contract with Golovkin. Canelo and Golden Boy Promotions have 3 weeks to exercise the rematch clause, but they’re already starting negotiations with Golovkin’s promoter Tom Loeffler, according to Dan Rafael.

The Canelo-Gennady fight last Saturday night could pull in over 2 million buys on HBO pay-per-view, with a gate over $30 million.

Team Golovkin and Canelo’s promoters at Golden Boy Promotions are interested in putting the rematch together. HBO wants an immediate rematch between the two fighters, as the interest in the Canelo-GGG fight is red-hot right now in the boxing world.

“I had conversations with [Golden Boy CEO] Oscar [De La Hoya] on Sunday and Monday, and we feel that’s the best thing to do, to go straight into a rematch,” Golden Boy executive Eric Gomez said to

“I would rather we do the rematch directly because I would hate for him take another fight and get injured or lose. It’s too risky. I would be against it, but I don’t control it. But, that said, based on my conversations with Tom, they would like to do an immediate rematch. I think the fight merits a rematch and we’ll see if it gets done.”
