The head of the Matchroom Boxing promotion company, Eddie Hearn, hopes that the current world champion in two weight divisions, Saul Alvarez, will fight with IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin in one fight.
Before that, the British promoter wants to bring the Mexican with another of his wards, WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders.
“If we talk about the possible fight between Saunders and Alvarez, then a situation arose where about $ 8 million from the sale of tickets evaporated in the air. Does Canelo want to fight for a more modest fee? It is doubtful. He is one of the biggest stars in boxing. But, maybe Alvarez will say to himself: “I understand the situation and the market situation. I need to fight without a crowd. “Will Saunders agree to a reduction in fees? I don’t know. Maybe.
In any case, I believe that Alvarez will fight with Golovkin after the next fight. Regardless of who will be his rival in September, I’m convinced that after that Canelo will meet with the GGG, ”said Eddie Hearn.
