Mikey Garcia, Robert Garcia Back Canelo To Beat Golovkin

By Miguel Rivera

IBF, WBC lightweight world champion Mikey Garcia, and his older brother/head trainer Robert Garcia, are backing Canelo Alvarez to unseat, IBF, WBA, WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.

Canelo will face Golovkin for a second time on September 15th, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Their first bout, back in September 2017, ended in a controversial twelve round split draw.

Canelo has been in active since that contest, while Golovkin fought on May 5th when he scored an easy two round destruction of Vanes Martirosyan at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Robert Garcia backs Canelo, but says he wouldn't be surprised if Golovkin got the win.

"On September 15, Canelo takes the win, not easily," said Robert Garcia to ESPN Deportes.

"I would not be surprised if Golovkin connected on Canelo, hurts him and knocks him out - because he has the punch, but I do think that Canelo wins a decision."

Robert Garcia believes Canelo will be a lot more confident this time around, because he was able to withstand the punching power of Golovkin in the first contest - and he was never hurt during their initial twelve rounds of battle.

"Since [Canelo] was in front of [Golovkin], he received punches from him and he endured them, it is advantage for Canelo, he is going to come in there with more confidence, he is young, he matured more in a year while Golovkin aged.... they are advantages that Canelo must take advantage of."

Mikey Garcia also sees Canelo winning a decision, by boxing smart over the twelve round distance.

"I think Canelo wins, he will box intelligently, he will win a decision. Golovkin, I think there is not much that he can change, he will come with his attacks and heart, but Canelo will win that fight," said Mikey Garcia.

[QUOTE=sterilizer;19058927]Your comment is biased, xenophobic and ignorant. Neither Mickey nor Robert are Mexicans, they are both Americans. There's no "nationalism" involved here. If they were called to war, they would do it for the US, not for Mexico. They may…
