Ruben Guerrero Leans To Canelo To Beat Golovkin in Rematch

By Ryan Burton

We are just about a month away from the highly anticipated rematch between WBC/WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin and former two-division champion Canelo Alvarez.  Their first fight took place last September and ended in a controversial split draw. 

Their rematch was originally scheduled for May but had to be postponed when Alvarez tested positive for a banned substance.  Golovkin ended up fighting late replacement Vanes Martiroysan who he blew out in two rounds in Southern California.

The animosity between both camps has reached a boiling point with Golovkin not buying Alvarez's excuse that his positive test came as a result of consuming contaminated meat.

Veteran trainer Ruben Guerrero believes that the rematch will be better than the first and favors the much younger Alvarez to emerge victorious.

"That is going to be a good fight. It could go either way. Canelo and Triple G are both ready to go. Canelo I think is going to step it up a little bit more. I think he is going to fight harder this time. I think he has the edge to win this time. I like Triple G but Canelo is real hungry, young, and is a strong kid so I think he has the edge to win," Guerrero told BoxingScene.com.

Canelo has been very upset at the accusations hurled at him by Golovkin and insists that he is a clean fighter. He seems to have a chip on his shoulder and that is another reason Guerrero believes the Mexican will come out on top.

"You never know. A lot of things happen out there. It could have been the meat (that caused the positive test). People don't know but he is ready to go this time. You can see it. I think he is going to pull it off," Guerrero explained.

As for the first fight, Guerrero thought it was close like many insiders.

"It was pretty close. I could have seen it go either way," said Guerrero.

Alvarez-Golovkin takes place on September 15th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas will be distributed by HBO pay-per-view.
