GGG has been very public on his journey to pack on the extra weight, stating that he has been bulking up since January of the 2017 year in preparation for the bout. Though the extra weight and power will be needed to prevent getting bullied by the middle weight champion, Amir stated that he was dedicated to sticking to his gameplan, using his speed and boxing IQ to wear Canelo down. The Briton seems more focused than ever and is not taking the opportunity for granted. Though this has not stopped him from throwing playful jabs while promoting the fight, recently joking that though the fight will take place on Cinco de Mayo, there will be many more British flags than Mexican Flags in the arena when the two go to war.
