Golovkin Promoter: Canelo Has To Actually 'Fight' This Time!

Tom Loeffler, promoter for IBO, WBC, WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs), says Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) will have to "fight" in the upcoming rematch.

In the first contest, the two boxers fought to a controversial twelve round split draw.

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

Golovkin and his handlers have accused Canelo of "running" in the first bout.

Because of the scoring controversy, Loeffler believes that this time around Canelo has to fight - because the official judges will not be handing out any favors.

"Today, this rematch really feels like it's a much bigger event than the first time. There was a lot of controversy around the scoring for the first fight, and both guys don't want to leave it in the judges' hands this time," Loeffler said.
We're up here where Abel Sanchez has his training camp in Big Bear, California. GGG is training to make a much more decisive victory over Canelo the second time around. You see we have all the titles here. GGG is the champion, and if Canelo wants to become a champion, he actually has to fight and try to take the titles away."

Loeffler is convinced that Golovkin will set the record straight when the rematch plays out.

He says Golovkin is very motivated to end this fight inside the twelve round distance - which is the only sure way to prevent a controversial ending.

"On our side we know who the champion is. It doesn't matter who is announced first. Doesn't matter whose name appears first on the poster. GGG is the champion. He's going to walk in with his belts and the important thing is he's going to walk out with his belts," Loeffler said.

"Neither side wants to let it go to the judges. Canelo is predicting a KO. GGG doesn't want to go through the same thing he went through last year in September -- where his fate is in the hands of three people. He wants to make sure he controls his destiny and wants to make sure there's going to be no question who walks out of the ring as the champion on September 15."

[QUOTE=SUBZER0ED;18919604]When have you known Golovkin to talk much [I]s[/I]hit? The only reason he has talked as much as he has this time around, is because Alvarez got busted with the failed drug test. Rest assured, Golovkin will let his fists…

[QUOTE=Raggamuffin;18919581]Now you see why I never listen to trainers. GG should be the one saying what his trainer is saying. GG was doing fine dissing Canelo and making him mad. Don't you feel aggravated when you have to hear from…
