So after the long drawn out affair, the rematch has finally been confirmed for May 5, 2018. No venue has yet been agreed. GGG's side want NYC, whereas Canelo's side want Vegas(where ODLH can bribe the judges again...).

GGG should of got the nod in the last fight. However, if Canelo decides to up the wok rate, he will win this time around. He has room for improvement, while I believe GGG has perhaps slipped (or just stepped up level of competition).

It's a fight that needs to happen and I hope there is no controversy this time around. But with both fighters unlikely to get stopped, perhaps there will be more arguments over another decision.

The good thing is it's happening. But for some ridiculous judging it was Golovkin's fight last time - although close. Both are likely to up their game for this one.

Let's hope that there's no interference or silly scores this time round. Golovkin by tight decision I reckon. Then he will go after Saunders' belt. If Canelo wins, which he certainly can, I can see the belts going all over the place due to money.

I actually think Canelo will get the tight decision, whether earned or not, remains to be seen! Definitely would like to see the winner in with Saunders, or perhaps Jacobs!

Enjoyed the first fight - had it 116-112 to Golovkin - handy win but the judges spoke to the tune of ODLH.

Should be a good rematch, GGG knows Canelo cant bother him power wise.

Will probably press more....

Works both ways, Canelo has felt the power and may dismiss it as bearable, could make him press the action as opposed to boxing on the counter.

Can see a similar first fight with Canelo winning a close disputed decision.

Unless GGG has one more big performance in the tank.

Interesting interview with Golovkin claims Canelo is a serial doper. Claims Canelo had puncture marks on his stomach ahead of the first bout. Also suggests de la Hoya is a cheat.

Interestingly Saunders-Murray got postponed yesterday with Saunders citing a damaged hand.

Could we see Golovkin and Saunders face off and leave Canelo on the outside?

GGG might mess up the detection times himself at some stage.

Golovkin needs to work on a new game plan because he doesn’t have the hand speed to catch Canelo with a clean head shot maybe go to the body a bit he used to be a good body puncher remember?

Golovkin didn’t enjoy some of Canelo’s own body work in the first fight so I think Canelo will be targeting the body too

Golovkin would love to make it a war but Canelo’s too smart for that surely he’s needs to stay elusive but up his output

Let’s hope it’s a better fight than the first either man is capable of getting the stoppage but the fight is more likely going to the cards

Saul Alvarez has been temporarily suspended by the Las Vegas state athletic commission pending a hearing into his positive drug test.

Funny how the Ring magazine stripped Luis Nery of their title for failing a drugs test for the same substance found in Alvarez's system. Yet they haven't stripped Alvarez. I guess Oscar owning Ring magazine help drugs cheat Alvarez

Instead of complaining about Canelo running, Golovkin needs to cut the ring off better certainly Sanchez needs to make a fuss about Canelo turning his back on Golovkin

Can’t believe the fight won’t happen too much money involved they’ve got three weeks to work out something good

Everyone wants to see the fight and there’ll be a lot of pissed off people if it’s called off

Surely Derevyanchenko would be a fitting opponent for May 5th:
