Why Alvarez didn’t knock out Golovkin: what Canelo said


The Mexican absolute second middleweight (up to 76.2 kg) Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (58-2-2, 39 KOs) was extremely correct and friendly to the defeated opponent in the third fight Gennady Golovkin (42-2-1, 37 KOs) . This morning they closed their legendary showdown with Canelo beating GGG by decision.

“I knew from the first round that he was strong,” Saul said when asked when he realized that he would not knock out the Kazakhstani.

“No, it didn’t surprise me. I know him, his genetics are in order,” Canelo said when asked if GGG’s jerks were very unexpected and dangerous, especially in the last rounds. “He’s a really cool fighter. Strong and cool. So I wasn’t surprised.”

“Glad to share the ring with him. We gave the fans three good fights and I’m happy to be a part of it. Thank you very much, Golovkin. Thank you my friend. Thank you for everything,” Saul said.
