“Canelo” Álvarez announces that he will fight against Russian Golovkin
The Mexican Sául «Canelo» Álvarez and the Russian Gennady Golovtin revealed, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, that they will face each other on September 16.
Both fighters made this announcement after the fight between Álvarez and his compatriot Julio César Chávez Júnior, who won “Canelo” by unanimous decision of the three judges (120-108 points).
The victory allowed Álvarez to leave his mark at 49-1-1, 34 knockouts, in addition to taking a purse of more than 18 million dollars. The fight against Golovkin, undefeated, with a record of 37-0, 33 knockouts, will be very different, among other things not only because of the quality of the rival, but because there will also be three world middleweight titles at stake.
“It is the fight that I have always wanted to make in recent years and now the time has come and nothing better than on such an important date in the history of Mexico, which will make it even greater,” said Golovkin, who, like Álvarez , they still do not know where it is going to be held.
For now, the promoter of «Canelo», Oscar De La Hoya, has already announced that it will be the most important fight and that everyone wants to see in the world of boxing, far superior to the one played by Floyd Mayweather Junior and the Filipino Manny Pacquiao two years ago.
“This is going to be a real fight and the one we’ve all been waiting for,” said De La Hoya, admitting that the negotiations had not been easy. “But now everything is closed, signed, and on September 16 the big fight will take place,” he revealed. EFE.
