Al­varez, Golovkin set for re­match on Sept. 15

Canelo Al­varez and mid­dleweight world cham­pion Gen­nady Golovkin have agreed to a re­match on Sept. 15 in Las Ve­gas.

Os­car De La Hoya, Al­varez’s pro­moter, con­firmed the highly an­tic­i­pated bout on his Twit­ter ac­count Wed­nes­day. “I’m happy to in­form that we have a fight Septem­ber 15 !!!! ,” he tweeted.

Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 knock­outs) and Al­varez (49-1-2, 34 knock­outs) had a fight sched­uled for May 5 un­til Al­varez re­ceived a six-month sus­pen­sion by the Ne­vada Ath­letic Com­mis­sion for fail­ing two drug tests in Fe­bru­ary for the per­for­mance-en­hanc­ing drug clen­buterol.

The first fight be­tween the box­ing su­per­stars ended in a draw last Septem­ber.
