Boxing: Canelo vs Khan  |  Joshua Dahl/USA Today Sports

CANELO ALVAREZ wants to fight Gennady Golovkin next after knocking out Amir Khan in the sixth round at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. According to the Mexican’s promoter, Oscar De La Hoya, negotiations will begin straight away.

“We will have a conversation [with Golovkin] tomorrow,” De La Hoya repeated several times during a long press conference. “The negotiations will be behind closed doors.”

Alvarez is the WBC middleweight champion – though this bout with Khan was fought at a catchweight of 155lbs. Golovkin, who was ringside, holds the IBF and WBA titles and later accused Alvarez of running scared.
