Some information about the Golovkin Canelo contract is now becoming more clear ahead of the pair’s massive showdown this September.
September 16th, 2017 is the date Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez finally put their rivalry to the test to find out who is the best once and for all.
A genuine middleweight world championship fight and event that has sent fans into overdrive with opinion since it’s announcement at the weekend.
The bout took some time to finally piece together from a contractual standpoint and now one key Golovkin Canelo contract detail in particular has been reported by the always excellent Lance Pugmire:

Interesting that Canelo has carried some leverage here in this regard – clearly showing that he had the upper hand in these negotiations.
What the above essentially means is that if Golovkin wins there is a guaranteed rematch that Canelo can avail straight away.
Whereas if Canelo wins, Golovkin is not guaranteed any rematch at all with Mexican and it will be up to Canelo if he chooses to give him one.
Of course the way to negate any rematch talk is for either guy to go out there and not leave it in the hands of the judges.
Thus avoiding any potential controversy that might come about afterwards which could lead to calls of a rematch.
Then again, if it’s a good fight, then perhaps people will be clamoring for a part two anyway.
