Sylvester Stallone on Canelo vs GGG: Everyone looking forward to the rematch

Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin 2

Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin are scheduled to meet inside the square circle for the second time on May 6 (May 5 in the US) at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The rematch follows their original held last September. After 12 rounds of boxing the bout ended in a controversial split decision draw.

The Canelo vs. Golovkin rematch is for unified middleweight titles. It is however in jeopardy.

Canelo twice tested positive for Clenbuterol (Feb 17 and Feb. 20) and has been suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. According to ESPN a commission hearing is scheduled for April 10, which will have the final say. It may result in a suspension for a time between six months and two years, if the majority of the five-person panel are not convinced that “positive tests were because of contaminated meat”.

Nevertheless, the second battle between Canelo and GGG is indeed a highly anticipated happening. Rocky himself, Sylvester Stallone stated on Instagram that “everyone in the world of boxing is looking forward to the rematch”.

Hollywood boxing icon posted a photo of Golovkin wearing “Be F1rst USA” T-Shirt, which is available at Sly Stallone Shop.

“The great fighter Triple G,” Sylvester Stallone wrote in the caption. “Everyone in the world of boxing is looking forward to the rematch”. He concluded the post with “Nice Shirt” and a set of hashtags: slystalloneshop, WBC, Creed2 and MGM.
