Alvarez chose to fight rival Gennady Golovkin a third time, not Dmitry Bivol in a rematch, on September 17.
“We already had that … agreement, so we have to continue what we started,” Alvarez said.
“I think those are the two biggest fights in boxing, the fight with Golovkin and the rematch with Bivol. Unfortunately we lost, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to try again. The important thing here is perseverance, and we’re going to do it again.
“What is certain is that we are going to return in September. And in the coming days, today, tomorrow, the day after, we are going to announce the [GGG] fight. We just have to wait a little bit.”
