Canelo Won’t Fight in September, Return is Postponed

Los Angeles, CA (July 17th, 2019)– According to Golden Boy Promotions and Canelo Alvarez, they have made the strategic decision to postpone their typical September fight. It’s been claimed that their decision was made “in an effort to secure the right opponent and to do justice to the level of promotion required for a boxing star of his magnitude.”




Though Canelo typically fights in May and September, it is not without precedent to fight later in the year as Canelo did fight in December of 2018 in Madison Square Garden when he knocked out Rocky Fielding for the WBA “regular” title at super middleweight. Recent talks for a trilogy fight with Gennady Golovkin have failed for now.

Canelo’s next fight will now take place later in 2019.

“As a Mexican, it’s a responsibility and an honor to represent my country in both May and September,” said Canelo Alvarez. “Those are my dates. However, as a world champion in multiple weight classes, I also have the responsibility of delivering the most exciting and competitive fights possible. That’s why Golden Boy and my team have decided to postpone the date in order to do right by my fans by promoting the best fight possible and with the best opponent possible.”
