Lineal and Ring Magazine Middleweight World Champion Canelo Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) and WBC/WBA/IBF/IBO Middleweight World Champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) will again face off — literally — later this evening (Tues., Feb. 27, 2018) to promote their upcoming rematch on May 5, 2018. The two will hook ‘em up for a second time after their first blockbuster pay-per-view (PPV) bout ended in a baffling 12-round split draw back in Sept. 2017.
Alvarez and Golovkin will participate in a media day today at Microsoft Square in Los Angeles, Calif., to officially announce the event, answer questions and, of course, square up for another face-to-face staredown. And you can watch it all unfold live in the video player above. This event, which will be open to the public, will be the extent of their promotional duties leading up to the late-spring showdown — there will not be an extensive press tour this time around. “Canelo vs. Golovkin 2,” which will take place inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, will be produced and distributed live by HBO Boxing PPV.
