The rematch precedes their first encounter which ended in a controversial split draw.
The pair were scheduled to fight in May until the Mexican tested positive for a banned substance.
Golovkin's WBA (super) and WBC world titles will be on the line. However, the IBF belt will not be up grabs after the Kazakhstan fighter was stripped of the title as a result of failing to fight his mandatory challenger.
Who's everyone backing in the second meeting - 'Canelo' or Golovkin?
