Canelo Calls GGG & His Camp Hypocrites
It seems Canelo Alvarez has finally had enough of the talk.
The verbal warfare for the upcoming September 15 rematch between Alvarez and WBA/WBC/IBO Middleweight Champion Gennady Golovkin has escalated greatly since their original match last September.
A rematch between the two — whose first bout ended in a controversial split draw — was originally scheduled for May, but Alvarez tested positive for clenbuterol back in February and eventually withdrew before receiving a suspension from the Nevada Athletic State Commission.
Golovkin has ripped Alvarez for the failed test, calling him a cheater and stating he has an ego. Meanwhile, Golovkin’s trainer, Abel Sanchez, says Alvarez is truly too scared to get back into the ring with the unified middleweight champ.
Now, Alvarez is firing back.
“I believe that cordiality we had — not in the ring — is over, as they keep opening their mouth,” Canelo told ESPN Deportes. “I don’t like to talk too much. Obviously, I get mad, but I can control myself when it’s time to box. That’s why there will be no more cordiality. I don’t know why they’re annoyed if I’m the one that has made them the most money. They say that is not important, that they are not arguing about it, but it’s the first thing they are fighting for: the money, the purse. They only care about that. The hypocrisy is…saying that is not important is the first hypocrisy.
It makes me laugh, obviously, saying that will happen when boxing is so unpredictable and so hard. They will not be facing the kind of boxer they have been facing. They know it. They just throw it out there, but they are aware what they will be facing. No doubt this will be a better fight. The desire to tear his head off is so big, and it will be much better.
