Loeffler: GGG Is The Best With Win Over Canelo
Tom Loeffler believes that on September 15th, Gennady Golovkin will prove he’s the greatest fighter on the planet.
Golovkin defends his WBA, IBO, and WBC middleweight titles against Canelo Alvarez, in a rematch of their controversial 2017 split draw.
Following tense negotiations, a failed drug test and suspension for Alvarez, and then even more tense negotiations, Loeffler feels that even though Golovkin is 36, he will prove to be the better fighter against the younger Alvarez.
“It’s hard to believe that there could be bigger drama than the negotiations we just concluded to make the rematch – again. The rematch has a much bigger feel to it because of all the controversy and is the biggest fight in boxing. It’s also the third consecutive time Gennady has taken over a major Mexican holiday to showcase his exciting Mexican-Style of fighting,” Loeffler said.
“This rematch transcends a championship boxing match and has become an international sporting event where it will be shown in over 150 countries worldwide. Gennady is bringing his belts and his resolve to prove he is still the best middleweight of his era and boxing’s No. 1 pound for pound fighter.
“He won the first fight against Canelo in the eyes of millions of viewers who tuned in last September and he will do it again on Mexican Independence Day, with his record-breaking 21st consecutive title defense. It’s his destiny.”
