Why Canelo waited 4 years for a third fight with Golovkin? Mexican version


Already this Saturday T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas (USA), the undisputed super middleweight champion Mexican Saul Alvarez (57-2-2, 39 KOs) will meet his antagonist from Kazakhstan Gennady Golovkin (42-1-1, 37 KOs).

This will be their third fight. In 2017, the fight ended in a draw, and exactly 12 months later, Alvarez was a little better in revenge. Those two fights took place a division lower.

On the eve of the rematch, Golovkin criticizes his opponent for allegedly doing everything possible so that the trilogy did not take place earlier – when it was much more relevant.

Version Canelo: Few people know that in 2019, even before covid pandemic, we almost agreed on the third duel. But then there was covid, and then I changed the division – I began my conquest of super middleweight. Here’s how it really happened. I think now this fight has become a reality only thanks to streaming DAZN and promoter Eddie Hearn. And I’m happy. It’s no secret that after the revenge, I decided for myself that our confrontation with Golovin was over. But DAZN they really wanted to do this fight, they were very persistent. Just covid didn’t let me do it a little earlier.”

Canelo says that I still “consider myself the best in the world. ‘Cause no one else does what I do. No one else takes risks like I do. I could also refuse risky fights, but I don’t want to, because I love all sorts of challenges very much. And I also want to punish Golovkin so harshly. And that’s what motivates me now. I will do it very soon. He pretends to be a good guy, but he’s not. That is why I don’t like him. But I give him credit – he is a chic fighter. Definitely a great fighter. There is no question here.”

The other day, coach Joshua shared his prediction for this fight. And a little earlier, the unbeaten ex-champion from Mexico.
