Golovkin Disagrees With Canelo's Stance on 'Title' For Trilogy

Former middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin does not agree with the recent statements of Canelo Alvarez, who said he would have no problem facing the hard puncher for a third time - if Golovkin captures a world title.

Canelo and Golovkin fought to a controversial twelve round split draw in 2017, and then last year Canelo won a close majority decision over GGG to clip away his WBC, WBA, IBO world titles.

On May 4th, Canelo will collide with IBF middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs in a unification, while Golovkin is back on June 8th against Steve Rolls.

Golovkin believes a trilogy fight should happen regardless, with or without a title around his waist.

“I think Canelo is not correct to say that. We have to see what’s going to happen. I’m hoping to fight him, title or not,” Golovkin said.

And the head of GGG Promotions, Tom Loeffler, agrees with his fighter.

“[A Canelo trilogy is] why Gennady signed with DAZN, it’s the clearest path to that. I don’t think the titles are going to make a difference. Both GGG and Canelo are above needing a title at this point in their career. Canelo fought here in December, he sold out MSG, Gennady has fought here and he built his fight here in MSG. I think the third fight will come down to economics. And location will be a part of the negotiations, because now, he’s not obligated to fight in Vegas,” Loeffler said.

As far as Canelo vs. Jacobs, Golovkin views the contest as being very close to a 50-50 fight. Golovkin won a close decision over Jacobs in 2017.

“I think it’s very hard to predict. It’s going to be a very important fight for the middleweight division and for boxing in general. It’s pretty even keel. Everyone has a chance. Everyone has a possibility to win. This is boxing, this is even stuff. It’s going to be an interesting fight no matter what,” Golovkin said.

[QUOTE=bigdunny1;19683374]Canelo is fighting the guy many feel beat GGG and who he ran from and refused to give a rematch. And Fielding was on every credible top 10 ranking and held a belt at 168. Canelo moved up weight on…
