Gennady Golovkin: Real Mexican Style Fighters Do Not Run!

LAS VEGAS, NEV. -- Boxing’s No. 1 superhero and undefeated WBC/WBA/IBF/IBO Middleweight World Champion GENNADY "GGG" GOLOVKIN (37-0-1, 33 KOs) successfully defended his titles Saturday night, scoring a controversial draw against lineal and Ring magazine Middleweight World Champion and Mexican icon Canelo Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs). 

Golovkin, boxing’s longest-reigning world champion, who has been middleweight champion since 2010, made his 19th consecutive title defense – one short of the all-time record.

The fight took place in front of a crowd of 22,358 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.  HBO Sports will present the exclusive replay of the exciting battle This Saturday!  Sept. 23, at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, on World Championship Boxing.  The fight replay will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO®, HBO On Demand® and affiliate portals.


“Of course I want the rematch, said Golovkin.  “Real Mexican style fighters do not run from best fight, from history fight.”

“To paraphrase Gennady, this was a big drama score,” said Golovkin’s trainer Abel Sanchez.  “Gennady and Canelo treated us to a great event.  It’s a shame they didn’t get the definitive result they deserved.  It was a close fight.  I thought Gennady won.  You don’t win fights backing up all night.”    

Canelo vs. Golovkin was a 12-round fight for the middleweight championship of the world presented by Golden Boy Promotions and GGG Promotions and sponsored by Tecate "BORN BOLD"; Hennessy, Never Stop, Never Settle; O’Reilly Auto Parts.
