Canelo and Golovkin Closing in on Deal for Super-Fight?

I’m not sure the extra two days will do anything to get a deal done.

According to’s Dan Rafael, the camps of middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez and unified titleholder Gennady Golovkin have accepted an extension of the deadline to make sure the showdown happens.

Alvarez won the lineal world middleweight title and the WBC belt from Miguel Cotto on Nov. 21.

“That bout carries enormous implications and is of great importance for boxing, both in terms of history and for the future of the sport,” Sulaiman said. “Many details must be addressed for a super fight of that magnitude to actually occur. The boxers’ respective promoters, Golden Boy Promotions and K2 Promotions, have been communicating in good faith to finalize the details of the negotiations for the contest to come to fruition.

“Recognizing that their discussions have been ongoing, the WBC has given the parties the flexibility to continue to work amicably to finalize terms, with the ultimate goal being that the two champions meet in the ring.”

With that said, it appears that the fight may be less than a year away, at best.

Golovkin likely will fight in late February or early March (at least) with Alvarez already penciled in for his next fight to be in early May.

The camps have a lot to work out, mainly the weight and the percentage split of the money.

I wouldn’t hold my breath for this bout happening anytime sooner.
