Ali Akhmedov vs Gabriel Rosado for North American belt added to Canelo vs GGG 3 card

Canelo vs GGG 3 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas

Ali Akhmedov vs Gabriel Rosado is a recent addition to a highly anticipated card taking place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, September 17. The pair squares off in the scheduled for ten rounds bout with the IBF North American title on the line. The event, live on DAZN, is headlined by a highly anticipated trilogy fight between undisputed 168-pound champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and unified WBA and IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.

The date when Canelo vs GGG 3 airs live in the UK and Australia is Sunday, September 18.

Akhmedov (18-1 14 KOs), promoted by GGG Promotions, bagged a pair of wins inside the distance in 2021 in California to get his path to major title fights back on track after suffering a final round KO defeat to Carlos Gongora in their clash for the IBO strap in December 2020. That was Akhmedov’s third fight on a card topped by his fellow countryman, promoter and Kazakh legend Golovkin, and the big hitting 27 year old will be looking to use the biggest of stages to impress against the Philly star.

Rosado (26-15-1 15 KOs) enjoyed thrilling success against his last eastern European foe, landing a knockout of the year contender when he landed a stunning right hook to demolish the unbeaten Uzbek rising star Bektemir Melikuziev in the third round of their clash in El Paso in June 2021. Rosado who boxed GGG for the World Middleweight title in January 2013, has tangled with two contenders in his recent bouts, being edged out via majority decision by Shane Mosley Jr in April after taking Jaime Munguia the distance in November – making this a must-win for the 36 year old.

Canelo vs GGG 3 tickets can be purchased through TicketNetwork and Vivid Seats.

“I’m happy to be a part of this show on DAZN PPV,” said Akhmedov. “It is a great opportunity for me to demonstrate my skills, especially against such seasoned opponent as Gabriel Rosado. Rosado is very experienced and has a history of fighting the best talents in this division which motivates me even more.”

“I’m looking forward to being a part of one of the biggest fight cards of the year,” said Rosado. “This is an opportunity to do what I did against Bektemir and put myself right back in world title contention!”

“I am very happy for Ali that his next fight will be on DAZN PPV,” said Golovkin. “And it will be a title fight. It gives Ali an opportunity to show everything he’s capable of and make a great impression. As his promoter I have a lot of confidence in Ali and I believe the time has come for him to make a name for himself.”

“This fight will be like a 4th of July,” said Rosado’s trainer Johnathon Banks. “It will be full of fireworks with youth vs experience.”
