“Do not slide into the cabin, useless fight.” Mashyanov gave a forecast for the Canelo-Golovkin trilogy


Gennady Mashyanov – head coach of the WBA Super light heavyweight champion (up to 79.4 kg) Russian Dmitry Bivol (20-0, 11 KOs) during
interview for the USACHEV TV YouTube channel, he expressed his opinion about the trilogy fight planned for September between the undisputed middleweight champion (up to 76.2 kg) Mexican Canelo Alvarez (57-2-2, 39 KOs) and the unified IBF / WBA champion in middleweight (up to 72.6 kg) Kazakhstani Gennady Golovkin (42-1-1, 37 KOs).

– Is Golovkin capable, like Dmitry Bivol, of taking 10 rounds from Saul?

— I can’t say anything for Gena at the moment. I will not make any predictions. He boxed with Murata last fight. I watched the whole fight, but I will say that the option is 50 to 50 at the moment.

Is this with fair refereeing?

– This is with honest refereeing, at the moment 50 to 50. But this is already taking into account the age of Gena, and so to speak, a little bit of some certain qualities. Maybe his speed dropped a little, because the initial rounds he somehow with Murata looked much slower than he could.

I don’t want to say anything. Yes, Gena, of course, can win. I think that Gena is technically much more equipped than Canelo. Technical baggage, his arsenal is much larger and much wider. It just needs to be used correctly during combat. Do not slide into the cabin, into some useless fight, exchange of blows. You need to use your advantage. Use your mental abilities more, and not follow the lead, so we will say, from the audience or something else.
