Slowly but surely, representatives for unified middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin and former champion Canelo Alvarez are getting closer to finalizing their rematch for May 5, both sides told ESPN.
“We’re still in discussions and I talked to (Golden Boy Promotions president) Eric Gomez about 10 minutes ago trying to work out the deal. We are working on concessions on both sides,” Golovkin promoter Tom Loeffler told ESPN on Tuesday. “It clearly makes the most sense to do it on May 5 and that’s what we’re focused on.”
Gomez said he hopes to finalize the fight, perhaps by the end of this week.
“It takes time,” Gomez told ESPN. “We are close. I hope soon, (maybe) this week.”
“Gennady definitely wants this fight to happen next, so there are no issues on our side,” Loeffler said. “It’s just a matter of both sides making some concessions. If it was up to us we’d have signed for the rematch a week after the first fight, but I’m optimistic that the fight will happen in May.”
