Undisputed WBC/WBA/IBF/IBO middleweight world champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) of Kazakhstan spoke with Southern California Boxing.com before today's mega press conference about his rematch with Ring Magazine middleweight world champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. Canelo Golovkin 2 will take place Saturday Cinco de Mayo (May 5th) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas live on HBO Pay per view.
Here is what GGG and his team had to say
“I am really happy for this fight. The first fight was the first fight. This second fight is much bigger,”
“I saw the fight 2 times. I have a plan now. I didn’t feel much of his power but I felt I won 7 rounds. This fight is much bigger,”
“I felt confident after the fight. 100 percent. I had my hand up. Of course I won the fight,”
“We are happy to be here to announce the rematch. We thought he won 8 rounds to 4. Usually you have to take it from the champ. I give no doubt to the aggressor. He out-landed Canelo,"
“The first time Canelo said it was going ten rounds and it went 12. Now he is saying that we won’t need the judges. We will see I feel Canelo has the pressure coming into this figh on himself. He has to deliver,”
