Golovkin Welcomes War With Canelo: He's NOT a Heavy Puncher

According to WBC, IBO, WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs), he was never bothered by the punching power of Canelo Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) when they collided in September 2017.

Golovkin says he is more than willing to fight in a toe to toe manner, when he collides with Canelo for a second time on September 15th from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

"It's hard to remember after a year, all this time. But from what I remember, he didn't surprise me as being a heavy puncher. He's not a very heavy puncher at all," Golovkin said.

In a recent interview, Canelo and his handlers explained how Golovkin is not capable of making any adjustments in the rematch and will likely fight in the same manner from their first contest.

Golovkin, who felt he won the first time, sees no reason to change a winning recipe.

"I don't need to change anything. It's their team that has to practically change everything. I don't think about him. I don't think about how it's going to be," Golovkin said.

"Right now there is a lot of talk back and forth, it's for the promotion. You will see what will happen on September 15th, everything will be very clear."

Golovkin also laughed off the recent statements from Eddy and Chepo Reynoso, who train Canelo. The coaching pair claim GGG is nothing more than a come-forward slugger who lacks the proper boxing fundamentals and necessary defensive abilities.

"If you listen to what they say, I appear not to be a boxer at all - what's interesting is why didn't they win the fight the first time," Golovkin said.

In the first meeting, the bout ended in a controversial twelve round split draw. One judge scored it 118-110 for Canelo, 115-113 for Golovkin and 114-114 for the draw. Both boxers complained in the aftermath, and both have promised to score a knockout in the upcoming rematch.
