PhilBoxing.com




Saul "Canelo" Alvarez vs. Gennady "GGG" Golovkin rematch will take place at T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada on Saturday, September 15, 2018 (Sunday Philippine time). The super fight was originally scheduled on May 5, 2018. But in March 2018, Alvarez failed a drug test and was found positive for the use of clenbuterol.

Canelo formally withdrew from the Golovkin fight, but changed his mind and renegotiated the rematch and it was rescheduled on September 15 after his suspension expired.

His nickname "Canelo" in Spanish is the masculine word for cinnamon, which is a nickname for people with red hair.
