The possibility exists that Canelo Alvarez will defeat Gennady Golovkin on Saturday night, turn to face the man who delivered his first world-title belt, and not accept his latest prized possession.
Last year, Alvarez returned his World Boxing Council middleweight belt to the sanctioning body after failing to fulfill a promise signed by his promoter to meet mandatory, No. 1 challenger Golovkin (37-0, 33 knockouts).
Golovkin was given the belt, adding to the World Boxing Assn. and International Boxing Federation belts he’d previously won.
