Canelo Tells Golovkin To Be a Man: Accept That Loss!

WBA, WBC middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez is surprised that Gennady Golovkin and his handlers are still disputing the outcome of their September rematch.

Canelo won a close twelve round majority decision over Golovkin to capture the WBC, WBA belts at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

They initially fought at the same Las Vegas venue in September 2017, with the contest ending in a controversial twelve round split draw.

This Saturday night, Canelo is moving up to the super middleweight division to challenge WBA "regular" world champion Rocky Fielding at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Win or lose, Canelo is expected to move back to the middleweight ranks.

Canelo wants Golovkin to man up and accept the loss.

"He will keep talking and the answers were clear after the fight," Canelo told Brian 'Kinshasa' Campbell of CBS Sports. 

"His trainer even recognized it but always they will keep talking and they will never accept the loss, especially because it was his first loss. Look, I know it's tough. I understand. But he also needs to understand how the fight went. He needs to see it himself and see how he lost. And the trainer said it too and he needs to accept it as a man and accept the loss. They characterized themselves before the last fight as people who will talk and they will keep talking."

Golovkin is currently a network free agent. Canelo is under a five year deal with streaming service DAZN. 

There have been offers from several networks, including DAZN, to secure Golovkin - and GGG is expected to make his decision before the year is out.

Canelo has no idea which network GGG is heading to. 

"No, I don't know. I have no idea what he's doing or what he will do in his career but I'm 100 percent focused on Rocky Fielding," Canelo said.

"We have had two good fights so why not a third fight? But I'm focused right now on my fight and there have been no talks, no nothing. He has been on his side and I have been on my side. But I'm here and I have this challenge before me."
