De La Hoya: Canelo Not Afraid of Kovalev, Andre Ward, GGG!

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya, who promotes WBC, WBA middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez, expects his boxer to come away with a very impressive victory on May 4th at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Canelo will collide with IBF champion Daniel Jacobs in a high stakes unification clash.

Jacobs is one of the biggest and most skilled opponents that Canelo has ever faced.

De La Hoya, a former six division world champion, would give his boxer what he believes is the perfect advice on how to topple Jacobs.

“I would tell him to study Chavez, you know? Meaning he would have to go in there, crouch down just a little bit, moving your head, and just keep treading, you know, keep going in and throw combinations. Because if you think you’re gonna outbox Daniel Jacobs it’s gonna be very difficult. It’s easier to go inside and work the body. The body is the one - you have to break him down and hopefully, he’ll fall," De La Hoya told Fight Hub.

"You never know what Canelo’s gonna do. You just never know. I have no clue what he’s gonna do come May 4th because he’s always changing his style. He keeps learning, he’s growing. So, yeah, we’ll see what happens.”

“He has that willpower. You know, he has that mentality of a cancer survivor, you know? Like ‘nothing’s gonna take me down.’ I mean it can be his nemesis

Should Canelo beat Jacobs, he will likely face Gennady Golovkin in a trilogy fight in the fall.

They fought to a controversial draw in 2017, with Canelo winning a close majority decision in the rematch.

De La Hoya says Canelo is even willing to face WBO 175-pound champion Sergey Kovalev or even the retired Andre Ward.

Canelo had mentioned in a recent interview that he'd entertain a future fight with Kovalev at light heavyweight.

“Absolutely [he will face Golovkin]. And there will be a third fight under my conditions, under Canelo’s conditions. There will be a third fight, absolutely. Canelo’s in the drivers seat, he can fight anybody from 175 all the way down to 160...including Andre Ward, if he wants to call him out, including Kovalev, including unifying the titles,” De La Hoya said.

“Call Canelo crazy but he’s not afraid of no one. I’m hesitant about it but if Canelo wants to do it, he’s gonna want to do it. And he’s the fighter and that’s why we have to respect him.”

[QUOTE=redmyth79;19614317]I beg to differ. Ward started at 160 and was at 168 for the remainder of his career except for Kovalev. He only went to 175 for the challenge not because he couldn't make 168 anymore. Ward is a natural…
