Canelo Smiles: What Jacobs Did To Golovkin - I Can Do Much More!

By Edward Chaykovsky

According to Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (48-1-1, 34 KOs), he was not surprised at all when Gennady Golovkin went the full twelve round distance with Daniel Jacobs.

Last month at New York's Madison Square Garden, Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) had all he could handle in retaining his IBF, WBA, WBC, IBO middleweight titles with a close twelve round unanimous decision over Jacobs, who the WBA's mandatory challenger. The scores were 115-112, 115-112 and 114-113.

It was the first time in Golovkin's career that he saw the twelfth round. Prior to Jacobs, Golovkin had stopped his last 23 opponents inside the distance.

For years, Canelo and his handlers would tell anyone who would listen that Golovkin had flaws and his record of knockouts were not very impressive.

“We — my camp and I — already knew what kind of fighter [Golovkin] was. We knew these things the media and the world are just seeing now,” Canelo said to the Los Angeles Times. “To us, it’s nothing new. Same ol’ thing.”

Canelo is scheduled to face Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. on May 6th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The contest takes place at a catch-weight of 164.5-pounds.

If Canelo wins, there are ongoing discussions to fight Golovkin in September during Mexican Independence Day weekend. Canelo believes strongly that he can do much better than what Jacobs did in March.

“What Danny Jacobs did, I can do much more on that fight night. Golovkin’s style is [one] that he doesn’t know how to go backwards. He doesn’t know how to fight from the outside. He’s very powerful and strong, but he only knows how to fight on the inside. If you’re in front of him, he’s going to get you. But if you’re around him, giving him a hard time … there’s so many ways to beat him,” Canelo said.

[QUOTE=mathed;17585341]He has no mobility. Sure he can duck some punches but he's a tank and tanks require a lot of fuel to operate. He has a HUGE mid-section for GGG to target. [B]Khan laid plenty of leather[/B] on him, Smith…

[QUOTE=satiev1;17584689]GGG has more [B]variation and ring iq[/B] then both cotto and lara. Also, has a much better jab than both.[/QUOTE] I don't believe that at all both are MUCH more well-rounded than Golovkin
