WBC junior middleweight champion Jermell Charlo (30-0, 15 KOs) says he’s been given promotional offers from Top Rank and Matchroom Boxing USA promoter Edidie Hearn, according to Boxingtalk.com.
Golden Boy Promotions president Eric Gomez insists that Saul Canelo Alvarez has “many options” for his next fight in September if the rematch with IBF/IBO/WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin doesn’t take place. Gomez says they still want the fight with Golovkin, but it’s up to him to decide whether he’s willing to agree to the terms set for the purse split from May 5.
Trainer Abel Sanchez says the World Boxing Super Series cruiserweight finals between WBC/WBO champion Oleksander Usyk and IBF/WBA champion Murat Gassiev will be taking place on July 21 at a still to be determined location. The fight was supposed to be taking place originally on May 11 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Saul Canelo Alvarez’s promoter Eric Gomez says the deal for the rematch against Gennady Golovkin is dead after receiving a counteroffer from his promoter Tom Loeffler for an unstated split that he finds unacceptable. Gomez isn’t saying what kind of purse split that Golovkin is asking for to defend against Canelo Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) for September 15, but Loeffler has already spilled the beans to the media in saying that GGG wants a 50-50 equal split of the money for the second fight.
