The real thing in boxing is Canelo vs. Triple G

Canelo Alvarez spoke of his desire to prove himself as a “clear winner” over Gennady Golovkin with the need for a rematch as the middleweight champions met in New York City on Tuesday night.Both fighters were met by big support groups in NY as the hype builds with a little under three months still to go until their T-Mobile Arena meeting.Gennady Golovkin has dismissed the threat of his superfight with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez being overshadowed by Floyd Mayweather’s bout against Conor McGregor. But for true fans of the “sweet science”, Golovkin-Alvarez is the most anticipated fight since Mayweather outpointed Manny Pacquiao two years ago.Speculation persists that the August 26 fight between Miguel Cotto and Yoshihiro Kamegai in California could be rescheduled to avoid a clash with Mayweather-McGregor. “If you want a true fight, then it’s me and Canelo who are the guys”.Golden Boy Promoter Oscar De La Hoya agreed with two of the greatest boxers in the world.Golovkin Vs. Alvarez is one of the most eagerly awaited boxing match-ups and will decide the world’s best middleweight. But after Golovkin outpointed Danny Jacobs – his first fight going 12 rounds – and Alvarez destroyed Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. earlier this year, the bout was made.26, does not believe the fight will disappoint after coming face-to-face with knockout specialist Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) at a press conference in London, the first leg of a global media tour to promote their fight. The event will take place Saturday, Sept. 16 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View®. “It will be wonderful for boxing”.KO specialist Golovkin, who battered Britain’s Kell Brook in five rounds past year, believes that Alvarez will give him the toughest test of his 38-fight career. Of course, Mayweather never has punched like Triple G does.”We will have a sold-out arena, we will do tremendous business on pay-per-view, and most importantly we will get a tremendous fight, which is very important for me personally, because I love this sport dearly”. I said to my promoter, please bring this fight to Kazakhstan. “It’s all very different”. It motivates me that the fans are getting the fight they demanded. I was a bit immature with my boxing to face someone like Mayweather, but we fought and that was the outcome. It all motivated me more.That will be proven – or disproven – three months from now.WBO champion Saunders hijacked the announcement of Golovkin’s Las Vegas mega-fight with Alvarez to accuse both men of running scared of him.”I was ready to fight him”.”Both fighters have the type of action packed style that the fans clamour for and something fans will not see in any other fight this summer”, said De La Hoya. Neither is interested in having the judges decide a victor.”There’s a high probability there will be a knockout because we both can punch and have a high knockout ratio”. “And obviously it is that they will raise my arm at the end of the fight”.Motor-mouth Saunders turned up at yesterday’s London press conference to claim that Mexican superstar Alvarez had “s*** himself” at the prospect of facing him in the ring.”There have been great fighters in Mexico, so many great legends”.”There were a lot of conditions from the WBC and a timeline, they put conditions in the purse split”, said Alvarez through a translator. I’m writing mine. This is my era, I’m taking care of mine. “I’ve broken records. I’m already part of history, but I have so much to attain and I have no intention of wasting a single opportunity”.”This is special for both of us”, he said. “Everybody knows we have power, huge, big boxing IQs”. I don’t know who is close to us in boxing.
