Here's the news.

So does the winner of the upcoming bout between WBO middleweight champion, Billy Joe Saunders, and David Lemieux, become a fall back option for Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) - if the rematch with Gennady Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) is not successfully negotiated for next May?
This coming Saturday night in Canada, Saunders and Lemieux will collide in the ring. Golden Boy Promotiosn handles both Canelo and Lemieux.
Both Lemieux and Saunders have made it clear that Canelo would be their next target.

Eric Gomez, the president of Golden Boy says that is not the case - and the rematch with Golovkin is their top priority for the Cinco De Mayo date of May 5th.

Quote:We're concentrating on making the rematch. We're very, very close on getting that done. It's just details we're working out and we're going back-and-forth and I think it's going to get done.
Our total focus - we're not thinking of anything else - what we want to do is the rematch. That's what we want.

Gomez told

As for when this could be announced, Gomez told

Quote:If we can get it done some time this week, we can announce it this week. But we're very, very close. We're concentrated 100-percent on getting all the details done

Back on September 16th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Golovkin and Alvarez fought to a disputed draw in an event that did very well financially, procuring well over a million pay-per-view buys and the third highest live gate in boxing history.
With the draw, Golovkin retained his WBA, WBC, IBO, IBF middleweight belts. In the aftermath, the WBC made Canelo the mandatory challenger to Golovkin's belt. It should be noted that Canelo is also the top rated contender under the WBO, which has the Mexican star in line for a mandatory crack at the Saunders-Lemieux winner.
Previous fight was disgusting because of corruption in boxing. I hope GGG gets a fair fight this time. These fucking corrupt boxing judges........
When is the fight?

It was supposed to be done two weeks after the fight but it's dragged on to 3 months already, They're waiting on the BJS/Lemieux winner to secure that WBO title fight for Canelo in May, then HOPEFULLY the rematch takes place in September.
I think it's happening in May next year as it was always happening in May.
