Canelo Alvarez doesn’t think too highly of Gennadiy Golovkin.
Alvarez and GGG first fought on September 16, 2017, where the two fought to a draw. It was a back-and-forth fight where when the final bell rang, many were torn on who had won and it ended up being a draw.
The two then had had an immediate rematch nearly a year to the date as they fought on September 15, 2018, where this time Alvarez won by majority decision. However, many people thought GGG should’ve won so the hope was they would do a trilogy but that has yet to happen. Instead, Alvarez doesn’t think Golovkin has done anything to deserve it.
“I am ready for everything,” said Canelo to ESPN Deportes (via boxingscene). “I am ready for everything, I am ready to make the best fights. You [journalists] hang on to that [the trilogy fight]. I’m doing more important things than him. Where is he? What has he done since he fought me? Nothing. I am doing other important things in my career. Beating champions, undefeated fighters.”
Since their rematch, Alvarez has fought six times while Golovkin has only fought three times. However, the trilogy is something many want to see and the hope is it happens next year as many think there is unfinished business.
Canelo Alvarez (56-1-2) is coming off a stoppage win over Billy Joe Saunders and is now set to fight Caleb Plant on November 6 to unify the super-middleweight division. Should he win, perhaps the GGG fight does happen next.
Gennadiy Golovkin (41-1-1) hasn’t fought since December 2020 where he beat Kamil Szermeta to defend his IBF and IBO middleweight titles. Since the Alvarez fight, he also knocked out Steve Rolls and earned a decision over Sergiy Derevyanchenko.
