Canelo Alvarez & Gennady Golovkin Reach Verbal Agreement For 2017 Bout

Spread the word!

The wait for the biggest fight to be made in boxing today may finally be over.

It appears Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin have come to a verbal agreement to go toe-to-toe inside the squared circle in a 160-pound bout in Fall of 2017, according to Boxing Junkie.

Golovkin’s promoter, Tom Loeffler, took a trip to Los Angeles to visit Oscar De La Hoya at Golden Boy Promotion’s offices, to negotiate a possible deal with ‘Canelo’s’ representatives for the perennial super-fight between the two boxing stars.

The plan is for ‘Canelo’ to fight on September 17th at 154-pounds, against an opponent yet to be revealed, before making the climb to 160-pounds for a Golovkin bout.

The 25-year-old Mexican star holds an impressive record of 47-1-1, with his only career loss coming at the hands of the legendary Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather back in 2013 via majority decision.

Golovkin is a frighting 34-year-old knockout artist who is currently undefeated in his career with a record of 35-0, and is on a tumultuous 22-fight knockout streak.

Do you believe the colossal boxing match will finally come to fruition? If so, who do you see emerging victorious between the two heavy-hitting studs?
