By now, it’s been well documented to everyone the kind of ride Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin have put us through these past few months. From Canelo Alvarez initially failing a pre-fight drug test that ended up leading to the cancellation of their May rematch, to the back-and-forth war of words between the two camps, and eventually the promising news that we will be seeing the two men face off again in Sep., there has been a lot to take in.

But Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin part two is officially on its way, as the rematch is set for Sep. 15 inside of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev., with HBO pay per view once again airing the contest. The two men fought to a controversial split-draw verdict after 12 rounds of action and people were speculating as to whether a rematch was going to actually take place.
