Canelo Alvarez suggests Jermall Charlo play the next fight or two with Dmitry Bivol and the Gennady Golovkin trio

CANELO ALVAREZ has been offered a fight against Jermall Charlo on his return – or a two-fight deal with Dmitry Bivol and Gennady Golovkin.

The Mexican superstar is a freelance agency and is not affiliated with an advertiser or television company and is free to forge her own path.

Based on ESPN, Al Haymon’s PBC Banner offered Canelo a headline-grabbing pay-per-view deal against American Charlo.

While Eddie Hearn has a dual-header pack, this will see Alvarez move up to light-heavyweight to face Bivol and then a three-part bout against GGG.

Charlo, 31, is the current undefeated WBC middleweight champion but has long faced off against Canelo, 31, who campaigned an upper hand in supermiddleweight.

Alvarez finished his final game of 2021 under PBC, beating Caleb Plant, 29, to become the undisputed king.

He made £30 million guaranteed with that number growing after box office success, with 800,000 PPV sold.

Staying with Haymon’s stable home on Showtime or Fox could be a wise choice for Canelo.

However, after parting with Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy banner in 2020, Alvarez will fight three times under Hearn, while still on streaming service DAZN.

His wins over Callum Smith, 31, Avni Yildirim, 30, and Billy Joe Saunders, 32, all contributed to his path to undisputed glory.

Accepting Hearn’s offer would give Canelo another chance to win another belt in the light-heavyweight division, who won the WBO edition in 2019.

But after his last 11-round knockout against Russian 38-year-old Sergey Kovalev, he vacated the title to get back into the weight.

Hearn wants Canelo to try history and become undisputed in two weight classes, with No1 pound-for-pound also linked to KO artist Artur Beterbiev, 37.

Bivol, 31, has held the title since 2017 and last May defended it in Manchester against Craig Richards, 31 of England.

Perhaps the most lucrative matchup for Canelo in boxing was a duel with longtime rival Golovkin, 39.

The pair drew happily together in 2017 and GGG was unfortunately not given a verdict, only for the Kazakhs to lose in a thrilling rematch a year later.

Both sold over 1 million PPV but both will go separate ways.

Golovkin remains in middleweight, where he reigns as the IBF belt holder and is set to unify it with the WBA belt ahead of 36-year-old Ryota Murata of Japan.

But Canelo warned GGG that he had to gain weight the first time to secured the third installment in their series.

Hearn is likely to supply the trio, having signed Golovkin, who fights on DAZN.

Canelo has accepted a request with WBC to move to CRUISERWEIGHT and try to win the fifth world title.

But challenge champion Ilunga Makabu, 34, is on shelves right now.
