The first fight between Canelo vs GGG happened almost exactly a year before the date set for the second fight. The Kazakh and the Mexican fighters faced each other on September 16, 2017, at the same T-Mobile Arena. Back then, Golovkin and Álvarez fought to a controversial draw after 12 rounds that had most people calling a win for the defending champion. Claims for a rematch soon followed, eventually coming through.
