The Golovkin vs Canelo rematch has been officially confirmed a short time ago through one of the most geniuses boxing announcements this writer has seen in some time.

The part two is going to be big – we all know that.

The controversy from the first fight, coupled with the fact it was a terrific contest as a spectacle, will make the part two as big as anything in boxing this year.

But how do you announce something this big?

Well, HBO Boxing contacted their old buddy The Rock of all people to make the announcement a short time ago on social media:
