The rematch between Gennady Golovkin and Saul Alvarez will definitely happen, after the World Boxing Council ordered a rematch.
Golovkin holds the WBC, WBA and IBF middleweight belt and his title defence against Alvarez ended in a controversial draw back in September.
Of all the three judges, only Adelaide Byrd scored the fight 118-110 in favour of Alvarez, resulting in her getting sidelined for upcoming high profile fights.
WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman said: “It’s the fight that the world wants to see.”
Golovkin’s Promoter Tom Loeffler is confident his fighter will come through in the rematch, whoever is judging.
“I think you’ll see Gennady knowing that he has to win more than eight rounds to get the decision, he’ll be even more persistent in the re-match,” Loeffler said.
“It doesn’t get any better than the fight with Canelo. It really became an international sporting event, instead of a world boxing championship match.”
