At the beginning of this year, “2017’s biggest fight” appeared to dominate the boxing conversation in 2018, with a rematch between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin announced. However, following Alvarez’s six-month suspension for a failed drug test, the match was put in jeopardy. Now, as ESPN and other outlets have reported, it looks a like a date for the anticipated Alvarez vs. Golovkin rematch has been set.

Canelo Alvarez — who Forbes calls “boxing’s biggest pay-per-view star” — and Gennady Golovkin are set to face off in the ring against each other on September 15. “Breaking: Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez agree to fight September 15 in Las Vegas, says Oscar De La Hoya,” reads a tweet from Sportscenter. “The rematch is on. 9.15.18,” adds another from HBO Boxing. Los Angeles Times journalist Lance Pugmire also revealed that Oscar De La Hoya himself confirmed the news.

Stay tuned for more information regarding Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin’s rematch, and check out ESPN’s breakdown of today’s news below.
