Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) might not be facing Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) next year on May 5, says Golden Boy Promotions boss Oscar De La Hoya. He says there are still other options out there that they’re considering in Daniel Jacobs and the winner of the Billy Joe Saunders vs. David Lemieux fight.
De La Hoya says Canelo will decide when they sit down and talk in the next few weeks. Canelo is the one that will be making the choice of who he wants. On one hand, De La Hoya says it’s up to the boxing public to decide who Canelo fights next, but on the other, he says it’s up to him. In other words, Canelo could elect to go against the wishes of the boxing public if they decide they want to see him face Golovkin in a rematch.
