Canelo on Golovkin: I Have Never Been Intimidated By Anything!

By Miguel Rivera

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (48-1-1, 34 KOs) is two weeks away from his Mexican grudge match with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Their fight will take over Cinco De Mayo weekend, May 6th, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

A catch-weight of 164.5-pounds is in place. Canelo, who holds the WBO junior middleweight title, is coming up in weight from 154-pounds. Chavez Jr. last fought at super middleweight and is coming down from 168.

While there is still a major fight ahead, a lot of experts are fixated on the possibility of Canelo taking on IBF, IBO, WBC, WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs).

Their respective promoters are in talks for a Canelo vs. Golovkin fight in September.

Following the fight with Chavez Jr., Canelo is planning to continue his career as a middleweight fighter.

Golovkin is viewed as the favorite to beat Canelo - if they face each other. GGG has knocked out 23 of his last 24 opponents. He is always in shape, trains in a whirlwind manner and at times he is even on weight a full month before a scheduled fight due to his impressive training pace.

Canelo is not impressed or intimidated by Golovkin's tremendous shape, his training methods or his power. 

"It does not impress me at all. Every opponent that I've faced has been well prepared and they were in great shape. That does not intimidate me or impress me at all. I also prepare very well, I have a good physique and I am a strong fighter. From the age of 15 I have fought with bigger and stronger boxers than myself and I have never been intimidated by anything," Canelo said.

Canelo also denies that he's fighting Chavez Jr. as a way to prepare for a fall fight with Golovkin.

"No, [the bout with Chavez Jr.] is just another important fight for me. I'm not focused on another boxer," Canelo said.
