Boxing super star Gennady Golovkin and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez hit Los Angeles, California earlier this week for open training for their long-awaited rematch next month (September 15, 2018) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada . Both had many words for each other, because bad blood was tested positively for clenbuterol with Alvarez and rejected the original date (May 5, 2018).
“We are approaching the battle, and I feel good. This struggle is personal, because all that was said, and it will be difficult to respect, which was to return it once. There are my statements gave me more motivation, given the mistake I made, was that I had the opportunity to prevent what I had to use, I should do it in a jump.
As I often said, the first match gave me recommendations for the second game. I know I can do a lot of things in the ring against him. I know I can hurt him. I hurt him in the first game, and I’ll hurt him even more in the second game. My goal is a knockout, and I’m looking for it from the first round. ”
Golovkin knows who I am. He knows who I am. Let me say this even better, he still does not know what else I need to show. I hope I can show it on September 15th. I must win convincingly. There must be mercy to remove any doubts. I’m very motivated for this victory. I am convinced, but I am not convinced of my opponent, because I know who he is, but I am confident in my preparation.
There is nothing like the Mexican style. In Mexico, there were many fighters of different styles. My style is mine, I’m Mexican, and this is important. Perhaps Golovkin uses the “Mexican style” to attract fans, but he is a hypocrite. If anything happens in Mexico, he will not be there to support them. ”
“Canelo, that no champion. He was not a liar who had nothing to do with boxing and fans. I want to become a world champion and bring all my belts at home. I’m ready to do another great drama show. I’m not Canelo in training. I’m not worried about that. I was just worried about my work in the training camp and doing my job in the ring against Canelo on September 15 in the last fight I just did not feel any real power of Canelo. he is not the hardest puncher with which I fought, but he is fast and fast, he is the most experienced fighter with whom I fought, he is a very good fighter.
I’m happy to be back in Canelo. There is another great opportunity to defeat him again. Of course, I want to turn off Canelo. It would be nice if Canelo fights this time. I do not believe what he says about how he will fight me this time. He said the same for our first game. I will be more aggressive in this battle.
Was he upset because Canelo failed with two drug tests? Yes, but I was more annoyed by the Canelos team. The apologies they gave, their attitude and Canelo’s reaction showed that they do not respect sports or fans. They showed their real faces. They are false, and I’m not angry with him, because the second chance was interrupted for the first time.
But I lost all respect for him. Canelo is not the biggest name in boxing, only the biggest scandal. I feel very comfortable. It was a good training camp. Abel worked with me on new things, which, I think, are very interesting. The cancellation of the revenge in May was a good experience, but it was not a very good experience. I think that the new judges and the new referee can be better for boxing and fans. ”
The open training also included the rising star Jaime Mungua, who defends the WBO Superwelter title against Brandon Cook in a joint effort. The card, which starts at 08:00 ET on HBO Boxing Pay Per View (PPV), is an average fight between Spike O’Sullivan fighter and knockout artist David Lemieux.
