Talks are under way for a potential super fight unification bout between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez.

In a statement posted on the WBC website, which confirmed that talks have started, the negotiation period has been extended.


“Due to the holiday week of Thanksgiving celebrated in the USA, and considering the goodwill of both parties to finalize an agreement, the WBC has extended until Friday, December 11, the time to have a final resolution of this matter in accordance to the WBC Rules and Regulations.”
