I hope Canelo Alvarez and his promoter make this fight happen Canelo and his promoter insist that the fight should happen at 155lb catch weight
Gennady Golovkin said that they will be fighting for the Middle Weight belt and the fight should be at 160 lbs which I think is correct but Canelo and his promoter knows how dangerous Golovkin is, He is one of the feared fighters in boxing today because he continue to destroy each and everyone of his opponents.
