TOM LOEFFLER, the promoter of Gennady Golovkin, has concerns over a possible rematch between “GGG” and Canelo Alvarez, after the latter held Kazakhstan’s Golovkin to a controversial draw at the T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas on September 16.

Canelo has fought regularly in Las Vegas for a number of years, for Golovkin this was his first big Las Vegas fight.

“We’ll sit down with Bob [Bennett, director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission] and there are some things we’d want to address if the fight goes back to Vegas – we won’t rule out Vegas, but I know there was some hesitation from the ‘GGG’ side,” Loeffler told MMA Junkie. “He’s never had that issue when he’s fought in California or New York or even in London. We just want to make sure it’s a fair playing field for both sides.”
