CANELO ALVAREZ insists he will eventually fight unified middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, though stresses that the superfight will happen on his terms.

The Mexican has faced extreme pressure from fans to take on ‘GGG’, though will face WBO super-welterweight champion Liam Smith on September 10 first.

Now arguably the biggest draw in the sport, Alvarez understands the demand for him to fight the best but also sent out a reminder to other fighters that he calls the shots.
