Middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez met on Monday in London, England for their first stop in their small scale worldwide press visit to advance their September 16 battle on HBO PPV from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The two contenders did a go head to head toward the finish of the question and answer session, and Golovkin looked a significant enormous greater than Canelo. Having considered Golovkin to be the littler contender in his last battle against Danny Jacobs, it was fascinating to see him towering over Canelo today. It wasn't recently Golovkin's tallness that made him look greater.
It's GGG's general edge. Golovkin just resembles the greater and more grounded fellow. This could be awful for Canelo. Golovkin is more grounded than folks that are greater than him. Be that as it may, with him now confronting a significantly littler warrior like Canelo, we could have makings for a genuine crisscross here. I'm talking Golovkin versus Curtis Stevens 2.0. That is not a thump on Canelo.
It's only a reality. He's minor alongside Golovkin. No big surprise Canelo's promoter Oscar De La Hoya has stalled for so long in not having any desire to have him climb to middleweight. Canelo resembles he's 5'8", and unquestionably not the 5'9" that he's recorded as being.
What was likewise fascinating about the go head to head is what Canelo looked like terrified of Golovkin. I recognized REAL dread easily when he was vis-à-vis with Golovkin. I'd never observed that from Canelo in his past battles.
Indeed, even in Canelo's battle against Floyd Mayweather Jr., he appeared as though he was certain of triumph. Today, Canelo looked anxious, extremely apprehensive. The size and the energy of Golovkin may have Canelo shaking in his boots a tad bit. It's normal however for warriors to be apprehensive and conceivably anxious of their rivals. It would be terrible for Canelo on the off chance that he gets beaten by Golovkin. There's a considerable measure riding on this battle.
The two warriors were to a great extent repressed and on their best conduct. What we gained from the present question and answer session is the 26-year-old Canelo has a gigantic measure of regard for Golovkin, and he's worried about his punching power.
Canelo says he wouldn't like to remain before Golovkin get hit by him. Canelo needs to move and counter punch to attempt and win the battle. Canelo recognizes this will be an intense battle for him because of Golovkin's punching force and experience.
"Each battle is extraordinary," said Golovkin at Monday's question and answer session. "Everyone has a possibility. This is boxing. I'm a general person. I'm not superman. Everyone has a shot," said Golovkin.
Canelo has a possibility of winning the battle, yet he will need to get on his bicycle and move around the ring on the off chance that he wouldn't like to get crushed immediately by GGG.
