Wait over: Canelo, Triple G eager for September megafight

"I'm very happy that this fight is finally here", Alvarez said through an interpreter, "the one that a lot of you said would never be made". "And that's what I'm doing".

Alvarez's victory against Chavez came courtesy of a unanimous decision, with all three judges scoring it 120-108 in his favour, giving him every round.

Canelo was short and sharp in his response, merely replying: "luck is for mediocre people". "I had to improvise". "He wouldn't throw punches".

After the fight, the undefeated Golovkin (37-0) entered the ring with Alvarez to announce their much-anticipated fight set for September 16, although the fight's venue was not announced.

And yeah, you read that right: Canelo just verbally agreed to square off against GGG, meaning one of the most explosive encounters in boxing is now in the calendar.

"I never sit down during sparring and it is not necessary there and it wasn't necessary here". "I wanted to box, but he went to the ropes, and I just needed to throw more punches", Chavez said.

And Golovkin warned the 26-year-old he would not be in for such an easy ride on September 16.

Alvarez then invited the undefeated Golovkin into the ring, where both fighters confirmed on HBO television that the bout is scheduled to happen on September 16th. "The fight is done", Alvarez said as the crowd cheered.

"Boxing has had its share of ups and downs", he added.
