Golden Boy Prez: I Think Golovkin is Scared of Canelo Rematch!

As previously reported on, unified middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) places only a "10%" probability on a rematch coming off with Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs).

This coming Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California - the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBC beltholder will step in the ring with Vanes Martirosyan in an HBO televised main event.

He was initially scheduled to fight Canelo on that date, at the T-Mobile Arena, but the Mexican fighter withdrew from the fight a few weeks ago.

Back in February, Canelo tested positive for the banned substance clenbuterol in two separate tests - which the boxer says is a direct result of ingesting contaminated meat during training camp in Mexico.

The failed tests would prompt Nevada State Athletic Commission to suspend him for six months.

Canelo intends to fight in September, and he would like Golovkin to be the opponent in the other corner.

Eric Gomez, President of Golden Boy Promotions, says Canelo's top priority is to reschedule the fight with Golovkin.

“The Golovkin fight is option No. 1 for Canelo, and we’re going to do everything we can to get that fight made,” Gomez said to Yahoo Sports.

“But if Golovkin doesn’t want the fight, we’ll move on and fight a different opponent. Canelo has done everything that has been asked of him and I think he’s proven to the commission and everyone else that he is a clean fighter and these tests were a mistake [and that he ate contaminated meat]."

Despite Canelo coming up clean in several tests in the last few weeks, Golovkin has openly stated that he believes Canelo is a cheater.

Gomez believes there are other reasons as to why Golovkin is constantly attacking Canelo as of late.

“Canelo has been tested more than anybody except for Floyd Mayweather, who is the one who started this voluntary drug testing. I’ll tell you the truth, I think Gennady is scared. He knows what he is facing. Canelo was tough and will be tougher. He remembers those last few rounds when Canelo was taking it to him and I think he’s afraid of getting in there with the younger, faster, stronger fighter. I believe that’s what this is," Gomez said.

[QUOTE=rrayvez;18736456]I honestly wouldn't be shocked if he went 12 but wouldn't bet that he would. I think it's going to look most likely like GGG's fight vs rosado where rosado had some success and seemed to land some good shots…

[QUOTE=El Gitano;18736930]What would have been the point to continue with the fight scheduled if Goldenboy had already been told by the NSAC that there was absolutely no way that Canelo would be allowed to fight? Part of him canceling the…

[QUOTE=GrandmasterWang;18736348]Quote him saying that then to show everyone. Currently you come across as a complete loony. I personally took a stab at the fight going the distance. It's a long shot but I called and bet the draw for GGG…
