Golovkin- Alvarez rematch?

LOS ANGELES – Talks for a rematch between undefeated middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin and Mexican boxing hero Canelo Alvarez are expected to begin in the coming days, the US media reported on Saturday.

Golovkin, who was making his Las Vegas debut, and Alvarez fought to a draw on Saturday in a evenly-matched bout that lived up to its hype as a showdown between the top two middleweights in the world.

Both the 27-year-old challenger Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) and the 35-year-old Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) said they wanted a rematch.

“It seemed like everyone came away from that fight with an unsatisfied feeling,” Tom Loeffler, of K2 Promotions which oversees Golovkin’s fights, told the Los Angeles Daily News.

Until his last two fights, which both went the distance, Golovkin had been jackhammering his way through the middleweight division. In March, he showed he could go the distance and win over Daniel Jacobs but their 12-round fight snapped a string of 23 consecutive knockouts for Golovkin.
