Canelo Alvarez Talks Gennady Golovkin (GGG) – “I’ll Fight Him Whenever He Wants”


Since Gennady Golovkin aka GGG beat the brakes off of David Lemieux last week, people have been asking about a fight with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. Fight Hype sat down with Canelo and he had this to say about the match up.


“If he wants to fight with me, let him come down to 155 and I’ll fight him whatever day he wants,”

“At this moment, my body isn’t ready for 160 pounds. Maybe 1 or 2 more years I’ll be ready for 160, I don’t know, but I’d be delighted to fight someone like Gennady. He’s a great fighter and I think it would be a great fight. I’d be delighted to get him in a fight,”

The problem here is GGG has already rejected a catch weight bout with Miguel Cotto but strangely he was willing to go to 154lbs to fight Floyd Mayweather.
