De La Hoya: "Yes we have a rematch clause and we intend to use it"
Saul Alvarez of Mexico will activate the rematch option in the contract for the fight against Gennady Golovkin of Kazakhstan. This was reported by the promoter Oscar De La Hoya.
On Sunday Alvarez fought against the WBA, IBF and WBC middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin. The judges decided to score a draw in this match. All the champion belts remained with the Kazakh.
"We have an option in the contract that allows us to immediately organize a rematch, and we intend to use it," De La Hoya said. Presumably, the rematch can take place in May 2018.
