There is no doubt that one of the toughest rivals he has ever had Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez throughout his career he is the Kazakh, Gennady Golovkin, boxer with what has faced twice (2017 and 2018), obtaining as a result first a draw and then victory.
After that victory of the Guadalajara, which left doubts for a long time, countless things have happened, such as the consecration of Canelo in the super middleweight division, where he thrashed Avni Yildirim, Billy joe saunders and Caleb Plant.
However, this does not at all impress Golovkin, who considers that the Canelo It is not the best pound for pound of today: “It depends on what we take as a criterion for that. After my fights against him, I don’t think he’s the best”, The Kazakh shot in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.
And it is that from the perspective of GGG the rivals he faced Canelo Alvarez in the 168-pound division they did not imply a greater challenge, he even said that they were all very similar and that their fights ended up turning into a novel.
“To be honest, I’m kind of tired of this series of boxers. They are like carbon copies. What Eddie Hearn (Canelo’s promoting partner) is trying to do is introduce each of his fighters one after another. It’s like a novel, of which we are all tired“, said Golovkin, who considered that the tapatío must face real rivals.
“It is time to face reality. Have some conscience to end this. There are other more interesting opportunities”, Added the boxer, who will face Ryota murata next December 29.
He is willing to fight Canelo
Gennady Golovkin affirmed that he is willing to face a third contest against him Canelo Alvarez, although he said that it is not something he is obsessed with either.
“I’m open to it, and always have been. Surely you know that we have had contracts and obligations for a rematch, but that fight has not happened. I feel extremely very comfortable with what happens“, said GGG, who has a mark of 41 fights, 1 draw and 1 defeat, precisely the last two against Guadalajara.
