GENNADY GOLOVKIN and Canelo Alvarez are “likely to fight again in spring” after beginning rematch negotiations.

The pair fought to a controversial draw in September, with most believing GGG had done enough to win the huge showdown. 

In fact, there was so much outrage regarding the actions of one judge in particular –Adalaide Byrd – the World Boxing Council ordered a rematch last month.

The board of governors announced they had mandated another meeting between the fight kings at their 55th convention in Baku in October.

Now it would appear another showdown is on the cards, as Golden Boy president Eric Gomez claimed: “[Everything] is going very well, we’re fine, we’re talking.

“There’s one detail that has to be fixed and fine-tuned.

“In the next few weeks we’re going to sit down with Canelo to present everything to him and he’s going to make the decision.”

Meanwhile, Gomez added the likely venue is yet to be discussed – although Las Vegas remains the most likely destination.Gomez claimed: “We have not touched on [arenas] yet.

“The important thing, right now, is to reach an agreement and then to see the arenas.”

In their first fight, judge Don Trella had it 114-114 while Dave Moretti scored it 115-113 in favour of Triple G.

But Golovkin got his first taste of Nevada-style judging in his Sin City debut, when the third judge, Byrd, scored the nail-biter 118-110 in favour of Alvarez.

She was later put “under review” after her errant scoring.
