ordered a Gennady "GGG" Golovkin
(37-0-1, 33 KOs), the WBC World Middleweight Champion
, and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez
(49-1-2, 34 KOs) rematch on Monday. This announcement was made during the sanctioning body's 55th annual convention
(9/28-10/7) in Baku, Azerbaijan
. The announcement came within weeks after the two men fought to a controversial split decision draw at the T-Mobile Arena
in Las Vegas
on September 16th
. Prior to the WBC's
recent announcement, both camps had already been in discussion for a rematch of the "Fight of the Year"
candidate matchup. Both camps are considering a potential Cinco de Mayo
rematch in 2018, a fight that seems bound to be part two of a trilogy between the two middleweights
