GENNADY GOLOVKIN ‘wants another crack at Canelo Alvarez’ in his next fight, promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed.
Canelo’s 2018 win against GGG is the only blemish on the Kazakh’s 43-bout career, which came a year after their contentious draw.

Having been unfortunate not to emerge the victor in both thrillers, according to several, Golovkin is keen on one more shot at revenge.
But if he is unable to lure his great rival into a trilogy bout, WBO champion Demetrius Andrade, 32, and Jaime Munguia, 24, are alternatives.
Hearn said: “I think he wants to fight Canelo Alvarez for the third time.
“We saw two tremendous fights first time up, he believes he should have won those fights.
“And I think he wants another crack at Canelo Alvarez.
“I think there’s some tremendous fights out there for him at 160lb. Demetrius Andrade, who’s here tonight, it’s a great unification matchup.
“Jaime Munguia would be a great fight for DAZN as well. But that’s the fight he’s chasing, he wants those legacy fights.”
Golovkin cruised past mandatory challenger Kamil Szeremeta to make a record breaking 21st middleweight title defence.

He dropped the Pole FOUR times before the referee called a halt to the action before the start of round eight.
Afterwards, GGG revealed he would focus on the winner between Canelo, 30, and Callum Smith, also 30, who defends his WBA super-middleweight title.
He said: “Absolutely I am open for anybody. Just best opponent for me, for business, for DAZN for people, for friends, I am ready.
“We will wait for tomorrow, I hope tomorrow is great event. The best, who wins? The best. I am open.”
