Golovkin’s age? Canelo also has a serious problem – Malignaggi


The conqueror of two weight categories, TV commentator and boxing expert, the American-Italian Paul Malignaggi, in his usual outrageous manner, commented on one of the most anticipated fights of the year – already this Saturday in Las Vegas (USA) antagonists Saul Alvarez (57-2-2, 39 KOs ) from Mexico and Gennady Golovkin (42-1-1, 37 KOs) from Kazakhstan will hold the third face-to-face fight.

Fans and bookmakers constantly look into the passport of a Kazakhstani – he has already exchanged his fifth decade. And Canelo allegedly reached the peak of his career.

Opinion Malignaggi: “I also often think that Golovkin is already too old. But then I start thinking about another factor. How about Canelo? What is his motivation? You yourself know that in the fight with Dmitry Bivol, he did not look very motivated. He easily accepted the defeat, practically did not try to change anything during the fight. So I ask, did the old hunger remain in him? So there are two important factors here. It all depends on how hungry Canelo is, because Golovkin really passed his career peak and got old.

“Here’s the thing,” Malignaggi’s eyes bulged. – In order to beat Golovkin, you still need to be a little hungry. So we will find out if Alvarez still has a little bit of the old hunger. What do I think about Canelo’s words about not wanting to fight his compatriots? All this is bullshit! You yourself know. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. – Mexican or not? But here’s the thing, Chavez Jr. sucks. That’s the reason Canelo fought him. Want to avoid a fight with Gilberto Ramirez or David Benavidez? Go * no-question, but just come up with a more convincing excuse – this one does not roll.

The previous two fights between Golovkin and Alvarez took place in 2017-2018: the first was a controversial draw, and the Mexican won the rematch minimally.

Yesterday, Canelo Alvarez assessed Usyk’s chances in the fight with Fury, and a little earlier, he “mowed down” a little under Klitschko.
