Marquez: Canelo Needs To Fight GGG, People Want The Fight!

Former four division champion and Mexican legend Juan Manuel Marquez was very impressed with Canelo Alvarez's 11th round knockout victory over Sergey Kovalev in Las Vegas last weekend.

Canelo and Kovalev were engaged in a close contest until the Jalisco, Mexico native unleashed a wicked two punch combination to put Kovalev down in the 11th round.  The hard hitting Russian wasn't able to get to his feet and with the victory Canelo now holds titles at 160, 168 and 175 pounds simultaneously.  The only other fighter to hold 3 world titles at once is all time great Henry Armstrong.

After the fight Marquez revealed that he picked Alvarez to win by knockout and said that his prediction only was off by 2 rounds.

"I was very impressed. It was a great performance by Canelo and he picked up another title. I wasn't surprised. I felt it would go that way. I had said that he would win by knockout by the 9th round," Marquez stated to a group of reporters.

As for what he would like to see Canelo do next, Marquez believes that he owes the fans a third fight with Gennady Golovkin.  The first two fights ended in a controversial draw and a controversial unanimous decision victory for Canelo.

After the 2nd fight against Canelo, Golovkin ditched his long time trainer Abel Sanchez for Jonathan Banks who is best known for his work with long time heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko.

Marquez believes that the change in trainers - coupled with age - have slowed down the 36-year-old Golovkin and that Canelo would win a trilogy fight if it comes to fruition.

"He needs to make that fight again with Triple G. I think Canelo would win. People want to see that fight.  Golovkin looked very different with Derevyachenko.  He changed trainers and I don't think that he looked good in that fight," Marquez explained.
