Avni Yildirm Arrives To Help Canelo Prepare For Golovkin

World Boxing Council International super middleweight champion, Avni Yildirim, has flown from Turkey to Los Angeles to ginger up Saul "Canelo" Alvarez`s hell for leather preparations for his rematch against WBC, IBF, WBA, IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, on Saturday May 5th at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Yildirim made the trip to the United States just two weeks after his rugged unanimous decision victory over wily veteran Derek Edwards.

"When I heard that Canelo wants me in his camp, I immediately confirmed and jumped on the next plane" Yildirim said, adding: "It`s an honor for me to work with Saul and the experience will surely help us both towards world championships."


Yildirim currently holds the position no. 6 in the WBC rankings and hopes to have a chance against champion David Benavidez in the near future.

"I always said that my goal is to win the green and gold belt," says Yildirim."

Did you wear your glasses watching the fight or are you just clinically blind

Eubank Jr steamrolled this chump this will not help against ggg

He's looking for similar styles to demonstrate similar openings and etc Not necessarily an elite aggressor...that's why pro camps use several sparring partners with each partner offering a piece of what's to come fight night. I had Ca$helo winning 8-4…

He got demolished by Eubank Jnr, probably not the best sparring partner to use for a bout with GGG.
