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. He was suspended by the Nevada Athletic Commission for six months.

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.

Alvarez is ranked as the world's top boxer, pound for pound, byBoxRec, No. 4 by The Ring and the Boxing Writers Association of America. He is also ranked as the world's top middleweight by BoxRec, and No. 4 by the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board.

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