"I'm happy to inform that we have a fight September 15!"
Billy Joe Saunders' wait for a super-fight with Gennady Golovkin will go on after it was confirmed the WBA, WBC, and IBO champion had agreed to fight Canelo Alvarez.
"Still working on it", Golovkin promoter Tom Loeffler texted to ESPN 20 minutes after the deadline as he scrambled to see if Golovkin, who is in Moscow as a guest of one of his sponsors for the World Cup, was interested in the newest proposal.
The two fighters had been due to fight each other in Las Vegas on May 5 before the middleweight bout was cancelled after Alvarez failed two drug tests. Martirosyan, who hadn't fought in almost two years, barely landed a punch on Golovkin, who scored a vicious knockout at StubHub Center in Los Angeles.
The pair's first bout last September ended in a controversial draw, with judge Adalaide Byrd's scorecard of 118-110 in favour of Alvarez widely ridiculed.

Should Alvarez beat Golovkin he will strip the 36-year-old of his world titles and become the No.1 middleweight in the division. Most boxing experts believe Golovkin won the first fight.
Golovkin remained steadfast throughout a lengthy stretch of public and private negotiations that he would not bend on his demand for a 50-50 financial split.
Canelo withdrew from May's rematch after failing two drugs tests and was banned for six months, but is free to fight from 17 August.
"It's a much bigger fight with all the controversy that has gone on and no love lost between the guys", Loeffler said.
