Saul Alvarez has "no problem" fighting Gennady Golovkin again and a third battle "has to happen", says Golden Boy president Eric Gomez.
'Canelo' can confirm his status as the division's current No 1 fighter in a unification clash with Daniel Jacobs in the early hours of Sunday morning in Las Vegas, live on Sky Sports.
It was Alvarez who claimed victory in his second fight with Golovkin, but the Mexican's promotional team remain open to resuming this rivalry after he returned to 160lbs following victory over Rocky Fielding to claim the WBA 'regular' super-middleweight belt.
"I think it's his best weight, that's his weight," Gomez told Sky Sports. "He might want to eventually go back up to 168, or maybe even 175. He joked around about that.
"But yes, that's his best weight, middleweight, and as far as fighting Golovkin, it has to happen. They are great fights. Both fights were great fights, the first two fights, and he's got no problem fighting him again."
Golovkin has voiced his dissatisfaction after his fights with Alvarez, a draw and a defeat, although Gomez believes Triple G will receive his chance for revenge after his next scheduled bout with Steve Rolls on June 8 at Madison Square Garden in New York.
"I think there's an equal desire," Gomez added. "Golovkin is a fighter that also believes in history and he's got a lot of pride. He can't retire without having one more crack at Canelo.
"That's what has made Golovkin a great champion, is that he also wants to fight the best and he's got that inner fire in him that won't let him rest until he has at least one more chance to prove that he can beat Canelo."
