Canelo Alvarez Swings After Facing Off with Gennady Golovkin in Los Angeles.
Undoubtedly September 16th 2017 is one of the biggest days in Boxing this year as both Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez fight at the T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Although GGG (37-0, 33 KOs) isn’t from Mexico, he plans to use the “Mexican style” of fighting he learned from his trainer Abel Sanchez to defeat Canelo (49-1-1, 34 KOs) on fight night.
Canelo responded by saying that he wants to show who has the real “Mexican style” of fighting when both him and Golovkin get inside the ring on 16th September. Both boxers have many fans in their corner, each claiming that one will triumph over the over. However, the majority boxing fans and the odds-makers believe that Golovkin is the one that will triumph in this fight due to his size, power, experience and superior ability.
In Golovkins most recent fights with Daniel “Danny” Jacobs and Ezekiel “Kell” Brook he has been hit a lot harder than usual. In a recent interview GGG was asked whether or not he has been less defensive as he is becoming older or whether he was purposey boxing in such a style that would make other boxers less hesitant to jump in the ring with him. GGG responded by saying that “my fight with Canelo is a different story to my fight with Danny… a historic fight”.
Both Canelo and GGG are huge power punchers within their weight class and critics have claimed that if Canelo stands face to face trading power punches with GGG than the fight will be finished quicker than expected and we will not see any of this “Mexican Style” of fighting that both boxers are claiming they will use on fight night.
