Abel Sanchez says it’s going to be much different in the rematch between Gennady Golovkin vs. Saul Canelo Alvarez when it comes to the percentage of the revenue for their fight in September.

Gary ‘Spike’ Sullivan is saying that the Saul Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin rematch will be taking place in September and that he’ll be fighting on the undercard and then facing the winner of the contest in December. O’Sullivan isn’t saying he was TOLD that he would be fighting the September Canelo-GGG winner.
Abel Sanchez says Gennady Golovkin has his mind made up about wanting a 50-50 equal purse split for his fight against Saul Canelo Alvarez on September 15, and he’s not going to be pressured to change his mind by the likes of Golden Boy or WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman. If the “prima donna” Canelo doesn’t like it, he knows what they can do with it, says Sanchez. Sanchez states that it’s up to Canelo whether he wants to take the fight with Golovkin.
