Saunders asked if he could fight the victor, but Golovkin was non committal. There are fights that are hard and there are fights that are tough, and this will be a tough fight. ― Reuters picLONDON, June 20 ― Gennady Golovkin has dismissed the idea that Floyd Mayweather Jr's comeback against Conor McGregor will overshadow his September 16 clash with Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.
GGG is one of the more powerful punchers we have ever seen, however, Canelo is maybe equally as powerful.
Their WBC, WBA and IBF middleweight unification match-up at Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena on September 16 has long represented the most enticing head-to-head for the boxing purist. He's aggressive, big puncher and has a good left hook but you know I'm Mexican, Mexican blood.
The undefeated Golovkin's aggression and ability, which has ensured 33 stoppage victories from his 37 fights and that he has fought for 12 rounds only once, has built his popularity in Mexico.
KO KING Gennady Golovkin has warned that his blockbuster showdown with Canelo Alvarez could be the last time he steps into the ring.
Alvarez's promoter Oscar De La Hoya expects such a competitive and entertaining affair that he has already spoken of the potential for a trilogy, though, and that is also on Golovkin's radar. I really don't have a comment about that fight, but I will say this- I think that the fans will speak, they'll know what to do. "I think the people know if they wanna see a show, they'll see that fight". The bout seemed to be overshadowed when McGregor vs. Mayweather was announced for August 26. "That's what makes for a good fight because of the style".
"You talk too much, you are a boxer, not a promoter", said Golovkin addressing Saunders. If you want to watch a show please watch them, if you want to watch a true fight, a true boxing fight and you respect boxing, watch my fight with Canelo.
The unbeaten Kazakh faces the biggest test in his illustrious career when he takes on Mexican star Canelo, in what is the best fight that could have been made in the sport.
Alvarez-Golovkin tickets, ranging from $300 to $5,000, go on sale Thursday, when the fighters arrive in Los Angeles to conclude their press tour.
"I know Mexican people, the same like United Kingdom people; everybody understands boxing, everybody loves boxing". "Sure why not. Obviously, it's in the back of my mind that fight and I'd love to erase that".
