Mayweather Sr: Canelo Can Stop GGG - If He Goes To The Body

FLOYD MAYWEATHER believes Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez can stop Gennady Golovkin by going to the body.

The retired pound-for-pound great has given his former rival advice ahead of the mammoth middleweight showdown this weekend.

Alvarez faces WBA, IBF, IBO and WBC champion Golovkin at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The promotion of the bout was overshadowed by last month’s mismatch which saw Mayweather outclass boxing rookie Conor McGregor in a mega money clash.

But this is the real fight of the year contender and even Mayweather could not avoid it in the build-up to his clash with McGregor.

When Mayweather’s father and trainer, Floyd Snr, was asked in an interview about Alvarez against Golovkin, he interrupted and said: “He’s got to go to the body, Daddy.

“He can stop him if he goes to the body.”

Mayweather Snr added: “It ain’t that Triple-G [Golovkin] is weak to the body, but if you go down there, you’ll find a lot of stuff you haven’t seen before.”

Alvarez lost a points decision to Mayweather in 2013 at a catch-weight just below light-middleweight.

But the Mexican has since gone on to become world champion at light-middleweight and middleweight with wins over the likes of Miguel Cotto, Erislandy Lara, Amir Khan and Liam Smith.

[QUOTE=twrx;18038849]Sure go to the body and leave the head wide open. Im sure ggg will take the trade off. Besides canelo is the one bulking up and dehydrating those muscles we'll see who can take the body work[/QUOTE] Was going…

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll;18039049]Great advice from the man himself, the trainer of champions. GGG is a midrange fighter. Getting in close, smothering him, and breaking down his body gives Canelo the best chance of winning.[/QUOTE] but canelo never fights that way

I fully expect a body attack to be Canelo's primary goal. He can win with it. Probably his only chance to hurt Golovkin, impede his attack.
