GGG Honored By The Ring, Talks Canelo

Already the holder of the WBA, WBC and IBO middleweight titles, Gennady Golovkin received a championship belt for being The Ring‘s pound-for-pound No. 1 ranked fighter.

Canelo Alvarez, Golovkin’s opponent on September 15 — a rematch of their epic September 2017 encounter — was the former The Ring middleweight champion until the magazine’s staff elected to strip Alvarez of the championship last week.

The belt was awarded to Golovkin at a media luncheon, during which he and his team also discussed backup plans in case the rematch was not possible and the champion’s thoughts on the currently-suspended Alvarez.
