Gennady Golovkin received special permission to move up in weight to face undisputed super middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez on September 17 in Las Vegas.

The Kazakh is middleweight champion and requested to keep his crown to the World Boxing Association (WBA) championships committee.

“GGG” won the title last April 9 by defeating Ryota Murata in a unification fight. He will now complete one of the most important trilogies in all of boxing in recent years against Alvarez.

The Committee decided to approve the request for permission and if Golovkin wins the fight against “Canelo” he will have five days (until September 23) to inform which title he wishes to keep and defend. If it is the middleweight title, he will have 120 days to face Erislandy Lara in a mandatory fight. 

If he loses, he will have the same deadline to defend his middleweight title against the Cuban in his next fight.
