    The U.S. economy is losing speed, something that has economists wondering how slow the economy can go and still avoid crashing into a recession.

    Whereas growth below 2% used to almost guarantee the economy would subsequently contract, some economists now reckon the U.S. can wobble around 1%-1.5% without falling over.

    The decline in the economy’s so-called stall speed is a relief after data released Tuesday signaled the weakest manufacturing sector in a decade. It still leaves the Federal Reserve under pressure to cut interest rates and President Donald Trump facing challenges heading into next year’s election.

    Whether the longest expansion in history remains intact may ultimately depend on whether consumers are able to maintain spending enough to offset the slump in manufacturing amid the U.S.-China trade war.

    “Suddenly the idea of stall speed is much more important today than it has been for most of the expansion,” said Stephen Gallagher, chief U.S. economist at Societe Generale SA. “The economy is running on one engine, and that’s the consumer.”

    Taking a page from aviation, in which the stall speed is the slowest a plane can fly while still maintaining a level flight, the economic equivalent is the point at which growth is no longer self-sustaining.

    Consumer Response

    That happens when consumers and companies pull back in the face of the lackluster economic performance.

    “When economic actors become sufficiently concerned — whether justified or not — a mild slowdown can easily become worse,” Eric Lascelles, chief economist at RBC Global Asset Management Inc., wrote in a report last month.

    The outlook for growth has indeed softened, with the manufacturing sector already slipping into a recession during the first half of the year, capital investment weakening and job gains moderating. Analysts expect growth in gross domestic product to slow to 1.7% next year.

    In expansions dating back to the 1940s, real GDP growth below 2% was almost always followed by a recession, according to Lascelles. Now, he and other economists expect the economy can avoid buckling at that pace. A reduced stall speed means growth can be slower and monthly payroll gains can be softer and still sustain the expansion.

    Growth Potential

    The stall speed has largely declined because the potential growth rate of the economy has slowed.

    The two concepts are closely tied. Potential growth is the pace at which the economy can expand without inflation heating up. Right now, the Fed sees potential growth at 1.9%. Predictions by the Congressional Budget Office for the rate have also come down over time. It’s eased amid demographic changes like slower population growth and softer productivity gains.

    Less Potential

    “The problem here is if potential growth is slowing, what constitutes a rapid expansion today is very different than what it looked like maybe 40 years ago,” said Michael Gapen, chief U.S. economist at Barclays Plc.

    And the expansion has been lackluster. Since the end of the recession in 2009, GDP has increased about half as much on a percentage basis as it did during the 1991-2001 expansion, the nation’s second-longest. Wage growth has remained subdued and inflation has repeatedly missed the Fed’s 2% target.

    What Our Economists Say

    “We expect stall speed for the economy to be in the vicinity of 1.4-1.5% real GDP growth (in year-on-year terms). Below that, household income creation slows to such a pace that consumers are unable to shoulder the growth burden.”
    –Carl Riccadonna and Yelena Shulyatyeva, Bloomberg Economics

    More Vulnerable

    Most economists predict the economy can stay above their self-defined stall speed level next year, but Joachim Fels and Andrew Balls of Pacific Investment Management Co. expect growth to slow to about 1% in the first half of 2020.

    “While a recession is not our base case, it doesn’t take much to tip over an economy that is moving along at stall speed,” Fels and Balls wrote in the report last week.

    While a slower stall speed means the economy can expand at a more subdued pace without signaling imminent recession, the bad news is that it doesn’t mean the U.S. is less exposed to a downturn.

    Lower potential growth “tells you that a shock that we may have experienced before the crisis which may not have tipped you into recession could certainly do so now,” said Matthew Luzzetti, chief U.S. economist at Deutsche Bank AG.

    As economic growth withers, fiscal and monetary stimulus, provided that they are employed in a timely fashion, can give the economy much-needed lift. But policy makers at the Fed and in Congress have less room to keep the nation from hitting stall speed — or possibly accelerating out of it.

    “It raises the risk of the end of the economic cycle,” Gapen said. “We’ve done what we can do on the fiscal side. There’s limited space for monetary policy to react.”

    NEW YORK (Reuters) – Venezuela’s opposition needs more support from Europe to oust socialist President Nicolas Maduro, an opposition envoy said on Tuesday, accusing the government of using the European financial system to get around U.S. sanctions.

    The opposition and the United States consider Maduro’s 2018 re-election fraudulent and say he has overseen an economic and political crisis. On Monday, a group of Latin American nations agreed to impose sanctions on members of his government at a meeting on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.

    “The whole world needs to condemn Maduro, but principally Europe,” Carlos Vecchio, the U.S representative for opposition leader Juan Guaido, said in an interview in New York. “Nicolas Maduro’s regime is bypassing U.S. sanctions through Europe.”

    More than 50 countries have recognized Guaido as the rightful leader of OPEC-member Venezuela since the head of the opposition-controlled National Assembly invoked the constitution to assume an interim presidency in January, arguing Maduro was illegitimate.

    But Maduro, who calls Guaido a U.S-backed puppet seeking to oust him in a coup, retains the recognition of the 193-member U.N. General Assembly.

    Vecchio said he would meet later on Tuesday with Enrique Iglesias, the European Union’s special adviser for Venezuela, to request the group slap deeper individual sanctions on members of Maduro’s government who he said have accounts and assets in Europe. He did not name specific officials.

    The European Union had suggested it would deepen sanctions against Venezuela should a Norway-brokered negotiation process between the government and the opposition fail. Guaido declared those talks dead earlier this month, weeks after Maduro walked away in protest of U.S. sanctions.

    Venezuela’s opposition and U.S. officials are hoping that by cutting Venezuelan officials off from their personal wealth, they will have an incentive to turn on Maduro or return to the negotiating table.

    Vecchio said he wanted Europe to take steps to cut off the growing flow of Euros in cash within Venezuela’s economy. He said these came from gold sales, which are sanctioned by the United States.

    In a statement on Monday evening, the International Contact Group on Venezuela — consisting largely of European countries — said it was concerned about the “temporary suspension” of the talks and expressed concern about Venezuela’s humanitarian crisis. It did not mention possible new European sanctions.

    Vecchio said he expected the Trump administration to issue specific secondary sanctions deemed to be helping Maduro stay in power. An Aug. 5 U.S. executive order that froze Venezuelan government assets in the United States said that would be a possibility.

    NEW YORK (AP) — And the category, a jubilant Billy Porter said as he made Emmys history, “is love, y’all, love.”

    Porter, known for making fashion statements on red carpets, became the first openly gay man to win an Emmy for best actor in a drama series for his role of Pray Tell on FX’s “Pose.”

    “I am so overwhelmed and so overjoyed that I have lived long enough to see this day,” said Porter, rocking a towering asymmetrical cowboy hat and sparkling striped trousers.

    He quoted James Baldwin, speaking on stage of the many years it took of “vomiting up filth that I had been taught about myself and halfway believed before I could walk around this Earth like I had a right to be here.”

    Porter added: “I have the right, you have the right, we all have the right.”

    As the crowd listened intently, Porter thanked his mother, Clorinda, saying “there’s no stronger, more resilient woman who has graced this earth. I love you mommy.”

    He also thanked his show’s co-creator, Ryan Murphy: “Ryan Murphy, you saw me! You believed in us.”

    The LGBTQ advocacy group GLAAD congratulated Porter in a statement “for this well-deserved honor and for always using his work and platform to showcase the power of being authentic.”

    “Pose,” set in the 1980s and 1990s, illuminates New York’s African American and Latino LGBTQ ballroom culture and the houses formed among the dancers and models as they compete for trophies. Porter, who already had Grammy and Tony awards, beat out nominees Jason Bateman, Sterling K. Brown, Bob Odenkirk, Kit Harington and Milo Ventimiglia.

    “I gotta breathe” Porter said. “God bless you all. The category is love, ya’ll, love.”

    He urged his fellow actors to work for change.

    “We are the people. We as artists are the people who get to change the molecular structure of the hearts and minds of the people who live on this planet,” Porter said. “Please don’t ever stop doing that. Please don’t ever stop telling the truth.”

      WASHINGTON (AP) — At one end of Pennsylvania Avenue, the president raged about treason. At the other, the methodical march toward impeachment proceeded apace.

      Democrats on Monday subpoenaed Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer who was at the heart of Trump’s efforts to get Ukraine to investigate political rival Joe Biden’s family. That was after one of Trump’s staunchest defenders, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, said he would have “no choice” but to consider articles of impeachment if the House approved them.

      With Congress out of session for observance of the Jewish holidays, Democrats moved aggressively against Giuliani, requesting by Oct. 15 “text messages, phone records and other communications” that they referred to as possible evidence. They also requested documents and depositions from three of his business associates.

      Meanwhile, the circle of officials with knowledge of Trump’s phone call to Ukraine’s president widened with the revelation that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo listened in on the July 25 conversation.

      Pompeo’s presence on the Ukraine call, confirmed by two officials who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss an internal matter, provided the first confirmation that a Cabinet official heard Trump press President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate Hunter Biden’s membership on the board of a Ukrainian gas company. It is that call, and the circumstances surrounding it, that are fueling the new Democratic drive for impeachment.

      McConnell, a steadfast Trump defender, nonetheless swatted down talk that that the GOP-controlled Senate could dodge the matter of impeachment if the House approved charges against Trump.

      “It’s a Senate rule related to impeachment, it would take 67 votes to change, so I would have no choice but to take it up,” McConnell said on CNBC. “How long you’re on it is a whole different matter.”

      Trump took to Twitter to defend anew his phone call with Zelenskiy as “perfect” and to unleash a series of attacks, most strikingly against House intelligence committee Chairman Adam Schiff. The Democrat, he suggested, ought to be tried for a capital offense for launching into a paraphrase of Trump during a congressional hearing last week.

      “Rep. Adam Schiff illegally made up a FAKE & terrible statement, pretended it to be mine as the most important part of my call to the Ukrainian President, and read it aloud to Congress and the American people,” the president wrote. “It bore NO relationship to what I said on the call. Arrest for Treason?”

      Trump tweeted repeatedly through the day but was, for the most part, a lonely voice as the White House lacked an organization or process to defend him. Senior staffers, including acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and White House counsel Pat Cipollone, were to present Trump this week with options on setting up the West Wing’s response to impeachment, officials said.

      A formal war room was unlikely, though some sort of rapid response team was planned to supplement the efforts of Trump and Giuliani. But Trump was angry over the weekend at both Mulvaney and press secretary Stephanie Grisham for not being able to change the narrative dominating the story, according to two Republicans close to the White House not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations.

      Democrats have orders from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to keep momentum going despite a two-week recess that started Friday. Staff for three committees are scheduled on Wednesday and Thursday to depose Marie “Masha” Yovanovitch, the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine who was removed by the Trump administration earlier this year, and Kurt Volker, who resigned last week as America’s Ukrainian envoy. Members of intelligence committee on Friday will interview Michael Atkinson, the inspector general for the intelligence community who first received the whistleblower’s complaint.

      Democrats are driving the proceedings toward what some hope is a vote to impeach, or indict, Trump by year’s end. They have launched a coordinated messaging and polling strategy aimed at keeping any political backlash in closely divided districts from toppling their House majority.

      Meanwhile, an outside group that supports GOP House candidates was starting anti-impeachment digital ads on Monday against three House Democrats from districts Trump won in 2016. The ads by the Congressional Leadership Fund accuse Reps. Matt Cartwright of Pennsylvania, Elaine Luria of Virginia and Elissa Slotkin of Michigan of “tearing us apart,” and are among the first in which Republicans are trying to use the impeachment issue against Democratic candidates.

      However, support across America for impeachment has grown significantly from its level before the House launched its formal inquiry last week.

      A new poll from Quinnipiac University shows 47% of registered voters say Trump should be impeached and removed from office, while 47% say he should not. Just a week before, it was 37% for impeachment and 57 percent against. That was before the White House released its rough version of the call between Trump and Ukraine’s president and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s announcement of a formal impeachment inquiry.

      In the CNN poll, 47% said Trump should be impeached and removed from office, up from 41% in May.

      Both polls showed dramatic partisan polarization remains on impeachment: most Democrats expressing support, the vast majority of Republicans opposed. The polls disagreed over whose opinions are changing — Quinnipiac showing increased impeachment support coming more from Democrats, CNN from Republicans.

      Schiff said on Sunday that his intelligence panel would hear from the still-secret whistleblower “very soon” but that no date had been set and other details remained to be worked out.

      A day after Trump demanded to meet the whistleblower, whom he has repeatedly assailed, he said when asked about the person: “Well, we’re trying to find out about a whistleblower,” who made his perfect call “sound terrible.”

      The whistleblower’s attorney, Andrew Bakaj, said Monday that the person “is entitled to anonymity. Law and policy support this, and the individual is not to be retaliated against. Doing so is a violation of federal law.”

      Separately, the Justice Department disclosed that Trump recently asked Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and other foreign leaders to help Attorney General William Barr with an investigation of the origins of the Russia investigation that has shadowed his administration for more than two years.

      Justice spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said Trump made the calls at Barr’s request.

      Trump was requesting help for U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the origins of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election. The investigation outraged Trump, who cast it as a politically motivated “witch hunt.”

      The Russia probe remains Trump’s motivating factor, according to Tom Bossert, the president’s former homeland security adviser.

      “I honestly believe this president has not gotten his pound of flesh yet from past grievances on the 2016 investigation,” Bossert said Sunday on ABC. “If he continues to focus on that white whale, it’s going to bring him down.”

       

      NUEVA YORK (AP) — Las acciones de Netflix abrieron el martes en territorio negativo en lo que va del año, la primera vez que sucede desde 2016, luego de que varios competidores grandes entraron en el negocio del streaming, erosionando el dominio tradicional de la empresa.

      El servicio de streaming revolucionó la forma en que la gente ve la televisión y, debido a su éxito, no había duda de que las principales empresas de tecnología y medios de comunicación entrarían al ruedo.

      Con Apple, NBC y Disney sumándose a los servicios de Amazon, Hulu y Netflix en el sector, esos desafíos se están volviendo cada vez más claros. Apple y Disney inician sus servicios en noviembre.

      Netflix reportó en julio una erosión fuera de lo común en su número de subscriptores. La compañía perdió 16.000 clientes en el segundo trimestre en Estados Unidos, su primera baja desde 2011.

      Este verano, perdió “Friends” y “The Office”, dos de sus programas más populares. “The Office” se va al final de 2020 para integrarse al servicio de streaming de NBCUniversal y “Friends” se va a inicios de 2020 al HBO Max.

      Netflix se está preparando y anunció recientemente un acuerdo de cinco años con Sony Pictures Television para los derechos globales de streaming de “Seinfeld”, la popular serie de comedia que transmitió su último episodio en 1998.

      Sin embargo, la competencia ya está afectando el precio de las acciones de Netflix, cuyas ganancias han bajado 46% en lo que va de este año.

      Con el campanazo inicial en Wall Street, las acciones de Wall Street bajaron más de 1%, mientras que el resto del mercado subía.

      Los inversionistas estarán muy atentos en tres semanas más, cuando Netflix reporte sus ganancias del tercer trimestre.

      “Generalmente concordamos con la opinión de Netflix de que puede prosperar en un mundo altamente competitivo siempre y cuando justifique su propio precio”, escribió Andy Hargreaves, de KeyBanc Capital Markets.

      “No obstante, Disney y Apple traen una competencia en mercadotecnia y acceso a capital que Netflix nunca ha enfrentado directamente. Esto podría aumentar los costos de adquisición de los usuarios y los costos de contenido, lo que tendría un impacto negativo en el crecimiento de subscripciones”, añadió.

      ORLANDO, Florida, EE.UU. (AP) — Disney anunció el martes que todos los restaurantes y centros de comidas rápidas en sus parques de atracciones Walt Disney World en Florida y Disneyland Resort en California ofrecerán alimentos completamente veganos.

      La compañía informó en su blog que las comidas con base sólo en plantas estarán disponibles a partir de la semana próxima en los parques y hoteles de su resort en Florida, y a partir de la próxima primavera en su resort de California. Los visitantes a en los parques temáticos de Disney en Estados Unidos podrán identificar los platos mediante un icono de una hoja verde en sus menús.

      Los directivos de Disney aseguran que sus huéspedes ya han acogido las opciones veganas en sus menús en todo el mundo, lo que ha inspirado a la empresa a ofrecer más opciones.

      Las comidas veganas no tendrán carne de animales, lácteos, huevos ni miel. Se elaborarán sólo a partir de hortalizas, frutas, frutos secos, cereales y legumbres.

      CHICAGO (AP) — La nutrición de los estadounidenses ha mejorado levemente pero sigue dominada por ingredientes que causan males cardiacos, diabetes, obesidad y otras enfermedades, indica un estudio.

      Los expertos estiman que el índice de buena nutrición con respecto a 16 años atrás subió muy levemente, de 56 a 58 puntos (el máximo es 100).

      La dieta de los norteamericanos sigue demasiado tolerante de elementos nocivos, estimó Fang Fang Zhang, uno de los autores del estudio y especialista en nutrición de la Universidad de Tufts cerca de Boston.

      El estudio fue publicado el martes en la revista especializada Journal of the American Medical Association. Se basa en un análisis de sondeos de las autoridades de salud estadounidenses entre 1999 y 2016, hechas a 44.000 adultos.

      “A pesar de las mejoras notadas, persisten importantes desafíos” escribieron los autores.

      Entre esos desafíos están: comer menos comida charra, hot dogs, carne, mantequilla y otras comidas grasas. Las grasas conforman ahora 12% de la dieta diaria, un alza con respecto a 11,5% y por encima del 10% recomendado.

      Y si bien hubo una disminución ínfima en el consumo de azúcar artificial, de 16% a 14%, sigue siendo demasiado alto. El gobierno recomienda que menos del 10% de la dieta diaria provenga de azúcar artificial. Los expertos sospechan que le baja se debió a una menor oferta de bebidas azucaradas, pero Zhang señala que muchas veces el azúcar está incluido en comidas que ni siquiera son dulces, como el yogurt o la salsa de tomate.

      Las frutas, nueces, la avena y otros granos son las comidas que los adultos consumieron un poco más. Aun así fueron menos del 5% de las calorías diarias en el 2016, determinó el estudio.

      La ingestión de sal disminuyó levemente y una baja menor en el consumo de jugos de frutas contribuyó a menos carbohidratos vacíos. Pero estos elementos siguen comprendiendo el 42% de las calorías diarias incluso de alimentos procesados como pan blanco, estimó Zhang.

      El estudio se basa en sondeos personales de hábitos de salud realizados cada dos años en los que se le preguntaba a cada persona qué comieron en las 24 horas previas. A partir del 2003 se le hizo esa pregunta a cada persona dos veces por día, cada tantos días.

      El estudio menciona categorías alimenticias en vez de comidas individuales; por ejemplo “granos integrales” en lugar de avena o “granos refinados” en lugar de pan blanco. Pero Zhang destacó que esas dos comidas están entre las más comunes en la dieta norteamericana.

      Las directrices de salud estadounidenses mencionan “buenas costumbres alimenticias” para combatir la posibilidad de contraer alguna enfermedad crónica. Recomiendan comer comidas ricas en nutrientes como frutas, vegetales, granos integrales, productos lácteos libres de grasa; en cuanto a proteínas, recomiendan pescados, mariscos, pollos, carne blanca y huevos.

      En los años en que se realizó el estudio, la tasa de diabetes casi se duplicó a más de 7% y aumentó la tasa de obesidad: el 70% de la población adulta estadounidense está excedida de peso o es obesa. Los males cardiacos siguen siendo la principal causa de decesos.

      Aparte de lo que haga cada individuo, es clave también que la industria alimenticia coopere reduciendo el contenido de azúcar y grasa en sus productos, dice el estudio.

        NEW YORK, NY - MARCH 1: A trader is comforted by a coworker as they work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on March 1, 2018 in New York City.

        (Reuters) – U.S. stocks edged lower on Tuesday as a drop in oil prices weighed on the energy sector, while investors stayed away from making big bets ahead of the Federal Reserve’s two-day policy meeting, where it is widely expected to cut interest rates.

        The energy index .SPNY fell 1.59% and was the biggest drag on the benchmark S&P 500 index .SPX after sources told Reuters that Saudi Arabia was close to restoring 70% of the oil production lost after weekend attacks on its biggest refinery.

        The sector recorded its best one-day surge since January on Monday.

        The U.S. central bank concludes its policy meeting on Wednesday, with traders currently expecting a 65.8% chance of a quarter percentage point cut from the Fed this week, down from 88.8% on Friday, according to CME’s FedWatch.

        Rate-sensitive bank index .SPXBK was down 1% in anticipation of a reduction in borrowing costs.

        “It’s just typical trading on the vigil of a Fed meeting,” said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at Spartan Capital Securities in New York.

        “We haven’t seen any panic from what happened over the weekend. I think (the Fed) will stick with a quarter of a percentage point cut even after the Saudi attack.”

        Since the last interest rate cut in July, U.S. economic data has shown mixed signals about the domestic economy. While strong retail sales and wage growth have bolstered consumer confidence, a protracted U.S.-China trade war has weighed on manufacturing and business sentiment.

        Latest data showed U.S. manufacturing output increased more than expected in August, rebounding from a drop in July.

        At 10:04 a.m. ET, the Dow Jones Industrial Average .DJI was down 58.03 points, or 0.21%, at 27,018.79, the S&P 500 .SPX was down 1.03 points, or 0.03%, at 2,996.93. The Nasdaq Composite .IXIC was down 3.29 points, or 0.04%, at 8,150.26.

        Among stocks, Home Depot Inc (HD.N) dropped 1.6% after Guggenheim downgraded the home improvement chain’s shares to “neutral” from “buy”.

        Corning Inc (GLW.N) tumbled 7.8% after the Gorilla glass maker cut its current-quarter display volume forecast.

        Kraft Heinz Co (KHC.O) slipped 3.7% after the packaged food maker’s second-largest investor, 3G Capital, sold over 25 million shares in open market at a discount.

        Deputy-level trade talks between the United States and China are set to resume on Thursday, but any agreement between the two sides is expected to be a superficial fix at this stage.

        Tariff concessions from both countries last week helped the benchmark S&P 500 come within 1% of its all-time high touched in July.

        Declining issues outnumbered advancers for a 1.59-to-1 ratio on the NYSE and a 1.77-to-1 ratio on the Nasdaq. The S&P index recorded six new 52-week highs and one new low, while the Nasdaq recorded 24 new highs and 10 new lows.

        JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu battled for his political survival in the final hours of a close-run election on Tuesday, urging voters to support him to avert a “disaster”.

        His voice hoarse from weeks of campaigning, the veteran leader took to the streets and social media, at one point using a megaphone in Jerusalem’s bus station, to urge voters to extend his unbroken decade in power.

        Opinion polls put former armed forces chief Benny Gantz’s centrist Blue and White party neck-and-neck with Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud, and suggest the far-right Yisrael Beiteinu party could emerge as kingmaker in coalition talks.

        Prohibited by law from campaigning on mainstream media, party leaders took to social networks to mobilize support.

        Saúl Canelo Álvarez y Gennady Gennádievich Golovkin se volverán a ver … en 2020.

        El promotor del boxeador mexicano, Oscar de la Hoya, confirmó la pelea durante la transmisión de una jornada boxística, el pasado 14 de septiembre.

        “Será uno de los oponentes para el próximo año. Tiene que serlo”, dijo De la Hoya, fundador y presidente de Golden Boy Promotions (GBP), durante el combate entre el mexicano Jaime Munguia (ganador) y Patrick Allotery, el sábado 14 de septiembre. La cuenta en Twitter de la empresa que transmite las peleas, DAZN, repitió la información:

        Pero antes que los dos boxeadores se enfrenten, cada uno debe resolver sus peleas pautadas para este año. Canelo enfrentará el 2 de noviembre al ruso Sergei Kovalev, en la categoría de las 175 libras y el llamado “Triple G”, chocará con Sergiy Derevyanchenko, por el peso medio, el 5 de octubre.

        Revisemos todos los detalles de la Canelo-GGG.

        ¿Cuándo y dónde será la pelea?

        Por ahora, solo tenemos un año: 2020. Como Canelo tiene contrato con DAZN y debe realizar al menos dos defensas, es probable que el combate se paute para el primer trimestre del año que viene o a más tardar, el 5 de mayo, fecha de la conmemoración de la Batalla de Puebla, un evento importante para la cultura mexicana.

        La sede está por verse. El kazajo, después de la segunda pelea, dijo que la localía le perjudicó, así que esperaba una tercera refriega fuera de Estados Unidos. Pero DAZN tiene los derechos de ambos púgiles y buscará sacar el mayor ingreso posible, de manera que Las Vegas parece el lugar idóneo.

        ¿Qué título estará en riesgo?

        Canelo (29 años de edad) y Golovkin (37 años) han peleado dos veces. El primer combate se realizó el 16 de septiembre de 2017 y quedó empatado. En esta refriega se buscaba la unificación de los títulos AMB (Súper), CMB, IBO, FIB, The Ring y el entonces vacante título medio.

        La revancha se realizó el 15 de septiembre de 2018 y el mexicano se impuso al kazajoen un combate polémico, por 114-114-115-113 y 115-113. Con ese triunfo, Álvarez se quedó con las fajas de la AMB y y CMB. Pero como Canelo perdió su título de la IBF (cetro que podría obtener GGG), al no aceptar la pelea con Derevyanchenko, es probable que se busque de nuevo unificar todos los títulos, como en el primer combate.

        ¿Qué canal transmitirá la pelea?

        Los fanáticos en Estados Unidos pueden ver cualquier pelea de Canelo en el servicio de streaming especializado en boxeo, DAZN.

        DAZN está disponible en una variedad de plataformas, incluyendo Roku, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, iOS, Android, Xbox One, Playstation 4 y Playstation 3, así como los navegadores Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer y Safari a través de DAZN.com.
