Canelo vs Golovkin – DAZN PPV – Sept. 17 – 9 pm ET

Matchroom Boxing can announce that the bitter rivals will meet in a trilogy blockbuster live on DAZN on September 17

DAZN, the leading global sports streaming platform, today announces that Saúl ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Gennadiy ‘GGG’ Golovkin will meet in an epic trilogy clash of world champions on September 17. Canelo vs. GGG III will be live on DAZN PPV in the U.S. and Canada and around the world on DAZN (excluding Mexico, Latin America, and Kazakhstan) and is in partnership with Matchroom, Canelo Promotions and GGG Promotions.

After Alvarez suffered only the second loss of his storied career in a sold-out T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas earlier this month, his focus switches back to Super-Middleweight where he will defend his undisputed title against the Kazakh king.

Alvarez and Golovkin have shared 24 thrilling rounds already in this hottest of rivalries and the pair will finally meet for a third time, five years after their first battle ended in a controversial draw and four since the Mexican superstar edged out Golovkin via majority decision.

Both battles took place in Las Vegas, and while a venue for the trilogy bout will be revealed soon, what is in no doubt is that it will be the hottest ticket in sport when these two foes dance for the third and decisive time.

‘I feel very happy and proud to be able to give the best fights and this fight won’t be an exception’, said Saúl‘Canelo’ Alvarez.

Gennadiy ‘GGG’ Golovkin said, ‘I hope to see you on September 17’.

“The Canelo vs. GGG trilogy is the biggest fight in boxing and I am delighted to get this made for September 17,” said Eddie Hearn, Chairman, Matchroom Boxing. “These are two men that bitterly dislike each other and want to end this incredible series with a blistering KO. I truly believe this will be the most thrilling fight between these two great champions and will be fireworks from the first bell to the last man standing.”

“What a month we have had on DAZN – the biggest women’s fight of all time, an absolute barn burner on in Las Vegas, and now, the highly anticipated trilogy fight between the pound for pound King Saúl ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and one of the other biggest names in the sport Gennadiy ‘GGG’ Golovkin,” said Ed Breeze, EVP Rights, DAZN. ’The last two fights between these two have been up there with the very best this century and we look forward to broadcasting it to fight fans live and worldwide on DAZN.”

Canelo’s trainer Eddy Reynoso said, ‘Let’s push ahead without going backwards. A Mexican never surrenders, let’s push forward.’


Jesse ‘Bam’ Rodriguez will defend his WBC World Super-Flyweight title against Israel Gonzalez as the co-main event on the undercard of the trilogy clash between Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Gennadiy ‘GGG’ Golovkin at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday September 17. The event, presented by Matchroom, Canelo Promotions and GGG Promotions, will broadcast live on DAZN Pay-Per-View in the U.S. and Canada as well as around the world on DAZN (excluding Mexico, Latin America, and Kazakhstan)​.

Rodriguez (16-0 11 KOs) is in red-hot form after a sensational stoppage win over Thai star Srisaket Sor Rungvisai on his San Antonio home turf in June, his eighth round triumph coming in the first defense of the title he won after stepping in late to meet Carlos Cuadras for the vacant strap in February in Phoenix.

‘Bam’ extended his promotional pact with Eddie Hearn following the win over Rungivisai, and he looks to strengthen his fighter of the year claims with another strong showing as he puts the green and gold strap on the line against Mexican Gonzalez (28-4-1 11 KOs).

The 25 year old challenges for World honors for the fourth time having previously faced Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez, Kal Yafai and Jerwin Ancajas for belts at 115lbs, and the Mexican will lay it all on the line with huge support from the crowd on Mexican Independence Day weekend in Sin City.

“September 17, we are back,” said Rodriguez. “It’s an honor to be a part of this card and I want to thank Matchroom and Teiken for giving me this opportunity. Having the chance to fight on Mexican Independence Day weekend, as the co-main to Canelo-GGG is truly special and I plan on putting on another spectacular performance and continuing to build my legacy.

“Each fight now is more important than the last. It’s not about just winning; it’s how you win. That’s mine and my coach Robert Garcia’s job now; to look sensational each and every time we step in the ring and continue to show the world that I am one of the best pound-for-pound fighters on the planet.”

“I want to thank Matchroom but most I want to thank the champ Jesse Rodriguez for the opportunity,” said Gonzalez. “I know I’ll take full advantage of this and make my dream come true of becoming a World champion on September 17.

“Fighting on Canelo-GGG III card is a dream come true for Bam to showcase his talent to the whole world,” said Rodriguez’s trainer and manager Robert Garcia. “Thanks to Matchroom and Teiken for this huge opportunity. We will take this chance to show the boxing world that Bam is one of the most talented fighters in the world.”

“I am delighted to make Jesse the first fighter on the undercard of a spectacular night on September 17,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “Jesse is the hottest property in the sport right now after his electric performances in the first half of 2022, and he’s looking to build on that on the biggest possible platform.

“Israel is sure to give it everything he has got on Mexican Independence Day weekend, but I believe you are going to see another special performance from a seriously talented young fighter in Jesse.”

Jesse Rodriguez’s clash with Israel Gonzalez is the first bout announced for the undercard of the third installment of the classic modern rivalry between Canelo and Golovkin, with the Mexican king putting his undisputed Super-Middleweight crown on the line against Kazakhstan’s reigning WBA and IBF Middleweight ruler in the most anticipated match up of 2022.

Canelo vs. GGG III will be live on DAZN around on the world and on DAZN PPV in the U.S. and Canada. Excluded territories include Mexico, Latin America, and Kazakhstan. The blockbuster event is another mega addition to DAZN’s premium portfolio of live sports and original programming, including the world’s biggest leagues and competitions UEFA Champions League, UEFA Women’s Champions League, Bundesliga, LaLiga, Serie A, and J.League.

  1. Canelo has been a promoter’s dream. He has been carefully protected through out his career, if you’re a real boxing fan it has been obvious. That is one problem boxing has always had. That’s bad for the sport

  2. GGG will find a way to for the first Time stop or ko Canelo I’ll say tenth round ,Canelo will say he was looking forward to fighting rematch with light heavyweight champion casting him to lose to GGG

  3. Triple G is over 40 years old. Triple G is a middleweight boxer, not a super middleweight. Drug testing in boxing is shaky at best, and Canelo has tested positive, not just once, but twice for performance enhancing drugs. Add the factor of judges somehow giving Canelo credit for rounds he has been trounced, such as one judge judging the Mayweather-Alvarez a draw, and the first Triple G-Alvarez bout ridiculously overwhelming for Alvarez. Essentially, the deck is stacked against Golovkin. Canelo should go down to middleweight to fight Triple G, rematch with Bivol, who won 10 of 12 rounds against Alvarez, although the judges had Canelo losing by just two rounds, or defend his super middleweight title against the top contender in that weight class.
