The two parties could not agree to the terms for the schedule upcoming match. However, it has now been confirmed that it is not bogus information. Golden Boy Promotions claimed that the two fighters will face off almost a year after their first bout. The officials confirmed the news last Wednesday.
A year ago, precisely on September 16, 2017, Canelo and GGG met for the first time in a match with the controversial results from the judges. That was because Judge namely Adalaide Byrd scored the fight 118-110 in favor of Alvarez, which made the speculations, protests, and arguments amongst the public. This controversy led to her taking a break from judging job.
Golden Boy Promotions claimed that the deal is done. The bout will happen on September 15. The topic is now trending as #CaneloGGG2 . The promoters initially confirmed that the rematch will occur on May 5. But the officials canceled it because of Canelo’s suspension after not passing the medical examination. The forbidden substance made him banned from the professional appearance until this August. Alvarez will return after his six-month suspension.
Initially, GGG was about to fight against Vanes Martirosyan on May 5. However, Canelo Alvarez replaced the position at the T-Mobile Arena. As we know, the first fight ended with controversial. You might be disappointed with the result as well. However, the whole drama will end in the second meeting between the two fighters. The rematch will justify the actual conclusion.
The bout in the September 2017 was a controversial and disappointing for many parties. Because of biased decision from the judges, the result was questionable. That’s why GGG will meet with Canelo again in the rematch of their September 2017 fight. Golden Boy Promotions and Oscar De La Hoya confirmed the truth on Wednesday.
The rematch was a close one since the officials confirmed that would happen on May. However, Alvarez was drawing out the application because of the drug test failure. The failure of the drug test occurred because of the tainted meat he ate before the test. He blamed it really well. The suspension did waste Canelo’s time since he received six months suspension after failing the test. Nevada State Athletic Commission carried the analysis at that time. The suspension will be up until this August, a month prior his appearance on the octagon when fighting against GGG in a rematch title.
The first rematch was May 5. But the fans need to be more patient because the officials postponed the bout until September 15. That means it is a year after the previous one.
