As reports were circulating that the fight was off after Triple G failed to agree to a deal before an 8 pm deadline, Canelo’s promoter Oscar De La Hoya went to confirm the fight by tweeting,
“I’m happy to inform that we have a fight September 15!!!!”
The two have been head to head for months over an agreement over the match, but, who would pass up a fight worth millions?
Oscar had previously set a noon deadline for GGG to accept his final offer, however, that was pushed back until 2 pm when a new deal was finally announced.
According to The Sun, Oscar’s main issue with the first deal was that GGG’s camp wanted a 50/50 revenue share, and Oscar believed that was way too much money. As of now, it is unclear what the final details on the deal are.
The original rematch was set for May 5, but, it was postponed when Canelo had tested positive twice for PED. He then began training again to better himself. The fight is scheduled to happen at the T-Mobile Arena in Vegas, but, there is no set date yet.
Looking back at the original fight.
