For Gennady Golovkin this third fight against “Canelo” will be different. For the first time he arrives as the challenger to the fight and, in addition, he is down in the betting, which has served as motivation for the Kazakh.
Although he is world champion at middleweight, he will move up a weight class to challenge the Mexican, who is the undisputed 168-pound champion.
“I guarantee everyone that they will see the best Gennadiy Golovkin. Whatever I know, whatever skills I have, I’m going to show them in the ring on September 17,” stressed the puncher.
Gennady will have to prove that his strength is still there despite his 40 years of age. He comes from an overwhelming demonstration against Ryota Murata, evidence enough that he is still at a great level but the challenge against Alvarez is expected to be much more complicated.
“GGG” is already a legend in the sport but he is not satisfied and wants to continue achieving goals. A victory against Alvarez would put the icing on the cake in his career and he does not intend to miss the opportunity to get it.
