GGG Quick Quotes

Undisputed WBC/WBA/IBF/IBO middleweight world champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) of Kazakhstan spoke with Southern California 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

Gennady Golovkin:

“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,”

Tom Loeffler:

“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,"

Abel Sanchez:

“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,”
