Alvarez wanted a rematch with Bivol last time out after being handed his second career defeat by the Russian, but he will instead take on a third bout with Golovkin this weekend
Dmitry Bivol will not pursue a rematch with Canelo Alvarez if he loses to Gennady Golovkin on Saturday night.
Alvarez is set to take on another tough test this weekend when he makes his return to 168lb to defend his undisputed titles against Golovkin in a third meeting at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
It will be the Mexican’s chance to respond after being outclassed by Bivol on his return to 175lb in his last fight, handing him the second defeat of his career.
He initially explored the opportunity of an immediate shot at redemption against Bivol, but the 175lb champion will instead defend his title against Gilberto ‘Zurdo’ Ramirez in November.
And the Russian’s manager has revealed that there is no obligation to make the fight particularly if Alvarez loses for a third time.
“If Canelo loses Golovkin, then we’re not fighting in the rematch with him either,” told Boxing Scene when discussing a potential second meeting between the pair. “I heard him say that he’s not fighting Bivol if he lost to Ramirez. If [Canelo] lost to Golovkin, we’re not fighting Canelo.
