De La Hoya: Canelo Is More Skilled Than GGG
During Monday’s satellite press conference, Oscar De La Hoya made it known that Canelo Alvarez has already seen the best of Gennady Golovkin, but not the other way around.
According to De La Hoya, Alvarez will not only be in peak condition, but the most motivated he’s been in his pro career.
“I can assure you, it’s clear that Canelo is in a stronger state of mind,” De La Hoya said.
“There’s obviously bad blood and therefore that’s why it’s gonna be an amazing fight. Look, Canelo, yes, he can box, he can move, he’s the more skillful fighter. He can do all that stuff, but he can also fight. And Triple-G hasn’t seen that. But I’ll assure you one thing – come September 15th, it’s all business. It’s all going in there and proving not to everyone who’s watching, but proving to Triple-G that he’s the better fighter.”
In regards to Alvarez’ physical appearance on September 15th, the Golden Boy Promotions CEO told reporters that, “Will he be in better shape? Will he be stronger, faster? He’s gonna be all that and then some.”
“We strongly feel they haven’t seen Canelo the way we’re gonna see him September 15th. We’ve seen Triple-G. We know what he does. All he does is come forward and fights, and that’s it. Canelo has many other things he does. So come September 15th, you’ll be able to witness that.”
