Canelo: I'll Beat Golovkin Soundly, Make Him Eat His Words!

Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) is gearing up for a real brawl with WBC/WBA/IBO middleweight world champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs).

The contest takes place on September 15th at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Their first bout took place in September 2017, and ended in a controversial twelve round split draw. The rematch will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View beginning at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT.

Golovkin, who won an Olympic silver medal, built an impressive 23-fight knockout streak, but then both of his bouts in 2017 went the distance, with Daniel Jacobs and Canelo.

Golovkin was set to face Canelo in a rematch on May 5th - but the contest fell apart when the Mexican star tested positive for the banned substance clenbuterol.

Canelo was then suspended for a six month period by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Golovkin still went forward with the May date, and scored a second-round knockout victory against Vanes Martirosyanin.

Following that fight, the negotiations began to finalize the rematch with Golovkin. The discussions played out for several weeks before they reached an agreement on the monetary terms.

From the moment Canelo failed a pair of drug tests, Golovkin verbally slammed him. He accused Canelo of being a drugs cheat - and questioned whether or not Canelo was clean for their initial bout. 

Canelo, who claims the positive tests were a direct result of eating tainted meat, has promised to punish Golovkin in the ring.

"The truth is that this fight means a lot to me because of all that has happened and all that has been said," said Canelo.

"I will prove with my fists that I am the best, and Golovkin will eat all of his words and speculations. I will demonstrate who is the best when I defeat Golovkin soundly on September 15 during Independence Day Weekend, and I'll make it clear that Mexican boxing is the best."

[QUOTE=DocGreenThumb.;18912100]Angulo never had jab to keep Connello off of him. Just a total punching bag with eyes. Now GGG, we seen what kind of jab he has. Why do you think Conello went to boxing off his back foot most…

[QUOTE=Graz;18912321]The rematch will definitely start as round 13 as you said. Canelo is extremely talented. It unfortunate that his Peds use mucked things up for him. That really isn’t the issue. The issue in the rematch will be if he…

[QUOTE=Lopez_Boxing;18912265]I think it the first bell will be for round 13. I personally had Canelo winning by one round. Draw is more the acceptable and having GGG winning a razor thin decision is acceptable as well. There’s 3 judges for…

[QUOTE=Graz;18912209]I agree that Canelo had no other option but to not “stand there and trade with a guy with GGG’s power.” Canelo did what he was capable of but IMO it wasn’t enough. My objective opinion came from what I…
