The awaited dream rematch of Canelo Álvarez versus Gennady Golovkin II is soon to become a reality. It is an up and coming proficient boxing rematch between Canelo Álvarez and Gennady Golovkin. It will occur at T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada on September 15, 2018.
The dream was supposed to have become a reality months ago. However, one integral hurdle stood in the way of this dream. It came in the form of a failed drug test that spelled scandal for Alvarez. Ever since then, the world of boxing has been holding its breath for the announcement of the date of the rematch.
The battle was initially to happen on May 5, 2018. However, in March 2018, two months preceding the battle, Álvarez tried positive for Clenbuterol. This led to a suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission for a half year. Álvarez formally pulled back from the battle. Later, he negotiated the rematch to happen in September after his suspension slips.
The world’s two best middleweights had impacted the past September and had battled a in a tense and engaging challenge. The match finished with a dubious split draw after the full 12 rounds. Savants and fans have been making cases for the two warriors having won the session. However, it was less the aftereffect of the draw that caused the discussion. Instead, it is the 118-110 scorecard for Canelo by judge Adelaide Byrd which is glaring difference that caused the chaos. It is an unmistakable difference to the scorecards of 115-113 for Golovkin by Dave Moretti. It is also the 114-114 even score by Don Trella causing the scandal.
The month of May should have included the rematch that brought together middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs) and Canelo Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs). However, there was a bump in the road. Canelo’s medication test disappointment for clenbuterol prompted the session’s wiping out. It also led to a six-month boycott for Alvarez. Golovkin ended up boxing Vanes Martirosyan on a general HBO card. He thumped out the Edmond Tarverdyan prepared contender in only two rounds.
The infamous suspension has been drawing to an end. You would imagine that it’s full speed ahead to booking the rematch again. However, this is boxing. You know it’s never that straightforward. The income split for the principal battle was 70-30 to support Canelo. The May fifth rematch, as far as anyone knows, set apart at 65-35.
With Canelo’s positive medication test, Golovkin needs terms to be 50-50. Loeffler claims that Canelo made in the area of $50 million for the primary battle. Whereas Golovkin made $20 million. The official battle handbags were $5 million for Canelo and $3 million for Golovkin. However, the two men clearly got extra cash from pay-per-see income.
It is accounted for that the two sides cannott concede to a cash split for the rematch, one that was likely set for Sept. 15. The Los Angeles Daily News reported the split for the main battle a draw. Most onlookers trust Golovkin really won was 70%-30% for Alvarez. The split for the rematch was set at 65-35% preceding Alvarez’s fizzled tranquilize tests.

However, it was in the end chosen that the stage would be the same as the principal battle. It was the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. According to WBC, not at all like the main session, Álvarez would battle for their title
The destiny of the rematch was in risk on March 5, 2018. This was when Álvarez tried positive in two irregular urine tests. They took place on February 17 and 20, for the restricted substance clenbuterol. The NAC opened an investigation. Álvarez was briefly suspended on March 23, 2018—pending a hearing on April 10. In the hearing, Álvarez would confront the likelihood a suspension of up to one year. Loeffler expressed that Golovkin planned to battle on May 5, paying little mind to his opponent. Former two-time light middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade influenced an offer to battle to if Álvarez got a long-haul suspension.
The following day, NAC boss Bob Bennett documented a formal doping dissension against Álvarez. This deferred the disciplinary hearing to the commission’s next month to month meeting on April 18. ESPN.com author Dan Rafael felt that this defer made it more questionable that the battle would not proceed. Whereas, T-Mobile Arena had effectively declared the earlier day that it would offer full discounts on tickets. On April 3, 2018, Alvarez authoritatively pulled back from the battle.
Gomez clarified that “given the present controls in Nevada we have been exhorted, and it is sad, that Canelo will not clear to battle in May. We are cheerful this issue will be settled and we are trusting Canelo will clear so we can reschedule the battle for August or September.”
