    Negotiations between the two hunters are set to continue and should the fight come to fruition, Alvarez would fall back to super middleweight after his step-up two weight classes to Sergey Kovalev defeat.

    The win saw the 29-year-old become a four-weight champion but he quickly left the light-heavyweight title to unite the super-middleweight division.

    Saunders & # 39; last fight came on the undercard of KSI & # 39; s rematch with Logan Paul at the Staples Center in November.

    The 30-year-old British managed to beat Marceloa Esteban Coceres in the penultimate round to pick up the win.

    Promoter Eddie Hearn, who represents Saunders, would like to put his husband against Alvarez, who has a mega-10 combat agreement with streaming site DAZN.

    Alvarez regularly fights on party weekend May 5, with Daniel Jacobs his most recent victim in which the Mexican beat him on points last year.

    Saunders is currently undefeated after 29 fights and has once successfully defended his belt.

Lomachenko pips Canelo and Golovkin to No 1 in our pound-for-pound rankings, but who else is in?


Cinnamon Alvarez is a helluva hunter, but dubious decisions against Gennady Golovkin means that Vasyl Lomachenko gets number 1 in the top 10 pound-for-pound rankings in Sportsmail … but who makes the cut?

    • Canelo Alvarez is a superstar but he doesn't get 1 place in our rankings
    • Gennady Golovkin would be king at 160 pounds if it wasn't for dubious decisions is
    • Vasyl Lomachenko is at the top while Josh Taylor is cutting too much, but who else is in it?

    By Jeff Powell for Mailonline

    It is not every day of the year, by the way, that it is necessary to combat pound for pound boxing rankings, as determined by The Ring.

    But now that magazine has been taken over by Golden Boy Enterprises from the legendary Oscar De La Hoya, the choice for the number 1 hunter on the planet when we face 2020, seems suspiciously subjective than objective.

    Canelo Alvarez is not only promoted by Golden Boy, but he is also their 350 million dollar attraction.

    For clarity, the red-haired idol of the Mexican he ring is a helluva hunter and it is not a mean feat for a boxer who started his professional career at welterweight to keep climbing the scales and become a four-division world champion on light-middle, middleweight, super-middleweight and lightweight heavyweight.

    Moreover, it stands as one of the many De La Hoya gifts to his sport that he has saved The ring, the bible of boxing, the threat of extinction, even if it moves in within two years after it centenary of his first publication.

    But the gift of the year-end distinction as the No. 1 prize hunter in the world at Cinnamon requires overseeing the two deeply dubious decisions that he was gifted in Las Vegas to his rival who is still would be the undefeated middleweight king, but for that outrageous defeat and draw. ]

JEFF POWELL: Callum Smith’s victory will have given Canelo Alvarez little cause for concern


Callum Smith denied the victory over the brave John Ryder, but his performance will have given rival Cinnamon Alvarez little cause for concern

  • Callum Smith earned his win over John Ryder, but the scorecards were amiss
  • Ryder was successful in the fight, which should have been rewarded by the judges
  • Fans can only hope that Smith for the opportunity will rise against Canelo Alvarez
  • The Liverpudlian says he & # 39; the fear factor & # 39; needs to perform at its best

by Jeff Powell for Mailonline

Internet cried terribly this weekend, but at admirable wise John Ryder relieved himself of continuing concern whether Callum Smith has a real chance of winning the super fight that he wants to win when Canelo Alvarez comes.

& # 39; Don't worry, & # 39; said the Mersey man who had previously convinced us that he was the best super middleweight in the world, & # 39; the greater the challenge, the better I fight & # 39 ;.

We can only hope. Believe him when he adds: & # 39; I need the fear factor to show me how good I can be. & # 39;

 Callum Smith retained his world title belts with a unanimous decision to win John Ryder "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>
<p> <noscript> <img id= Callum Smith retained his world title belts with a unanimous decision on John Ryder

That motivation for stomach ache was not at work before Smith came out to defend his world title against Ryder. When he started for this Liverpool fan in the second half, he was almost too late.

Almost

Ryder wavered Smith – as never before seen, let alone in his house – Town Arena – the longer it went. If the championship distance in boxing was still 15 rounds instead of 12, then one of the hardest men ever coming from trendy Islington would probably have added an extra to this year's collection of major disruptions.

Doing business towards the end, bloody with a cut above his right eye, Smith clung to his WBA belt like a man almost drowned.

<p> <noscript> <img id= Ryder opened a cut over Smith's right eye while the super middleweight champion toiled

But the massive chirping of theft that followed the unanimous decision neglected Smith's winning of the opening rounds.

He had continued to act during his natural physical benefits – six inches in height and eight in range – there would have been no controversy. Instead, for whatever reason, he allowed himself to be dragged into a war by the grossly underrated and bravely degrading Ryder.

There were two or three times that Ryder was just one angry hook to drop the Goliath for him

Yet it was the unjust breadth of scoring instead of the verdict itself that provoked the protests.

Terr y O & # 39; Connor & # 39; s card from 117-111 requires control by the British Boxing Board of Control. The two Spanish judges were closer to reality at 116-112, but it was more than that.

According to my calculation, Smith reached 115-113 at home, but if this is a fight, there can be no serious complaint, anyway

Ryder felt saddened of course. His trainer Tony Sims had a case when he condemned the details of the score as & # 39; ridiculous & # 39 ;. He also called for a review of the assessment system and a rematch. Neither is likely.

Smith & # 39; s trainer Joe Gallagher said: & # 39; Callum won right away and we continue. & # 39; To what? & # 39; Hopefully Canelo, & # 39; said the youngest of the four fighting Smith brothers from Liverpool and added: & # 39; If that means going to Las Vegas in May, I'll grab my hands for the chance. & # 39;

It is the left hands that split his eyebrow and occasionally shot his legs that should be remembered. If Cinnamon or Gennady Golovkin ends up with their strength on the hooks, there can be serious problems.

<p> <noscript> <img id= Smith lands a right hook during the WBA World, WBC Diamond & Ring Magazine title bout

Gallagher is right to remind us that his bizarre long super-middleweight deserves respect for an undefeated career in which the exceptional achievement came with the emphatic victory over George Groves to land its world title.

Cinnamon or Golovkin would inject the necessary fear into Smith's psyche, but this version that he admitted to being "not my best" would not have improved his market value in America.

Other options are a union with another of the 12 stone title holders, perhaps the o-unbeaten WBO champion Billy Joe Saunders. But it is doubtful whether one of those fights would justify the realization of his long-held dream of boxing in Anfield.

Smith & # 39; s relative inactivity of recent times – this was only his second defense since Groves stopped 14 months ago – May rust have previously put fear in this dip in shape.

If yes, the sooner and he fights again, the better. It doesn't matter who reaches the opposite corner.

Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin ‘will discuss’ trilogy bout for next year


& # 39; It is clear that they still have unfinished business … we sit down and discuss it for 2020 & # 39 ;: Cinnamon Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin triptych is at stake, DAZN admits chief

Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin ] are scheduled to discuss a trilogy competition next year, according to DAZN chief Joe Markowski.

The middleweight rivals were involved in two epic encounters in 2017 and 2018, with Cinnamon claimed a close win in the rematch after a controversial draw.

The Mexican sensation, which has since conquered the world title in the super-middleweight division and united in the middleweight, will step up to the lightweight to take the pound-for-pound Sergey Kovalev next month.

Golovkin has meanwhile regained his IBO and IBF world titles by Sergiy te beat Derevyanchenko wins on a limited number of points earlier this month.

Both Canelo and Golovkin have long-term combat contracts with DAZN and Markowski have revealed that there are plans to make a money-bearing third installment in 2020.

& # 39; We are known and it is clear that Cinnamon and Triple G have many unfinished things and the fans want the third fight, & # 39; he told The Sun.

There are huge debates about the results of those two fights, as a result we want the third fight to happen and Canelo knows that. Realizing that is an important part of our relationship with them.

& # 39; Assuming that Cinnamon endures the challenge of Kovalev, this is not a safe assumption because it is a great test against a light-heavyweight at the top of his game, we will sit down and plan discuss before 2020. & # 39;

  • Canelo Alvarez has trivialized talking about a triptych fight Gennady Golovkin and claimed that the dreaded Kazakh looked slow and vulnerable in winning the IBF and IBO middleweight titles last week.

    Golovkin looked less threatening than when he knocked out Steve Rolls in June during a workpoint victory over the Ukrainian Serhiy Derevianchenko who was proposed by many experts to make their unification battle at Madison Square Garden to have won.

    The 40th victory of the heavy warrior has left the fight in the hope that he will seal a third game against Canelo, who handed Golovkin the only defeat of his career during a points win in Nevada in September 2018 after a tie between the couple a year earlier.

Gennady Golovkin knockout makes third fight with Canelo Alvarez too good to refuse


A story of two Saturdays, in the city that never sleeps, has certainly paved the way for the most dramatic fisticuffs of the year.

& # 39; s Rocky Horror Show

& # 39; s rocking horror show

The two are connected by even more than this lively contrast between triumph and disaster. Joshua & # 39; s crushing zone by Andy Ruiz Jr. cleared the decks of Madison Square Garden for a statement of such eloquent violence by Golovkin that it is virtually impossible for [194100] Canelo Alvarez to take a third fight with Triple G. to refuse.

Tyson Fury is expected to beat Tom Schwarz in Germany in Germany next Saturday, but even the retake with WBC world champion Deontay Wilder cannot take place until 2020.

The trilogate between the two exceptional middleweights of their time must now be central.

Madison Square Garden was seven days after electrification seven days after Anthony Joshua

After Golovkin the brave Steve Rolls with threw the front down

Madison Square Garden seven days after he had electrified the loss of Anthony Joshua on the canvas with an almighty left hook in the fourth round of Saturday, sent Canelo & # 39 ; s promoter Oscar De La Hoya him this free tweet: & # 39; Nice comeback victory. Fight a real hunter now, win a belt and I will consider doing the third fight # Canelo & # 39; syourboss. & # 39;

That is not quite the Golden Boy's decision to make. Far from it. And the time is right.

And the time is right and the time is right.

Canelo certainly watched as the GGG force returned to the Kazakhst, who robbed him of his middleweight world championships in Las Vegas. He will have heard New York & # 39; s acclaim when Golovkin told the more than 12,000 attendees: & # 39; We all know who the fans want me to fight next. & # 39;

If he paid attention to the Mexican idol, it will know how unwise it would be to give Golovkin the recuperative benefits of another fight before they meet again.

There were Rusty moments in the second round when he was heavily caught by Canada's Rolls, although the ruinous outcome had quickly become inevitable.

Another warm-up battle and the entire Golovkin arsenal will be charged to full firepower. And let alone that he is 37, he is still the killer of the face every inch.

There is no percentage for Canelo, either tax or fistically, in postponing the inevitable. His best chance to prevent Golovkin from avenging the excessive draw and the dubious victory he received from sympatico judges during the Mexican national holiday weekends in Vegas, is the fastest to beat him

He says: & # 39; The story has now changed. It is time for a different atmosphere. I have a few bad feelings about Vegas, but I love Madison Square Garden and the fans here love me. & # 39;

Rolls helped him resolve that by coming to do the fight I had promised, rather than just want to survive

The undefeated, albeit relatively unknown, man from Toronto went for broke and won that second round by landing those solid punches that showed no less than Sugar Ray Leonard thought on television whether Golovkin could be in marginal decline

The most cited sentence in Charles Dickens' masterpiece, A Tale of Two Cities, reads: & # 39; It's a much, much better thing than I (now) than I have ever done. & # 39; By the time his epic trilogy with Canelo is finished, Golovkin hopes to claim that sentiment for himself.
