Canelo is Clear, Saying He is Good Enough to Beat GGG

Saul “Canelo” Alvarez set up a fight for the history books when he boldly claimed that he is a better boxer than Gennady “GGG” Golovkin. Canelo announced an intention to dominate, as he did in bouts against such fighters as Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., Liam Smith, and Amir Khan. With his confident claims, there is a lot for him to prove in the bout against Triple G at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on September 16.

Canelo is 26 and seeks to prove superiority over GGG, who is 35 years old; and the expectation is that he will be a defining influence in the boxing world. If he doesn’t win this bout, however, carrying the sport is not going to happen. Will he be just another among a crowded field of fighters by being beaten in a decision or, worse, knocked out by Triple G? It’s an important question, since Golovkin will only be an active fighter for so long, which isn’t much longer.

Validating a career is an important milestone for a fighter. For Canelo, the fight with Triple G is that milestone. Some critics claim Canelo is only popular because of his many loyal fans but is otherwise not legitimate. Part of the reason is because his promoters have declined to schedule him in fights against a host of contenders, such as David Lemieux, Demetrius Andrade, Danny Jacobs, Jarrett Hurd, and Jermell Charlo.

If you’re putting money on this fight, will you go for experience or youth? While on a press tour, Canelo has applied old-fashioned intimidation tactics, showing aggressive energy and facing crowds while throwing body shots into the air. Mental edge can definitely make a difference in the outcome of a fight, depending on who the fighters are. Canelo says this fight has been motivating him more than anything and he’s never been more confident.
