Loffler To Canelo “Less Mexican Beef” & “More Mexican Style”
At the initial press conference for Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin’s rematch, GGG’s promoter Tom Loeffler is hoping that Alvarez brings the fire on September 15th.
“Not only as a promoter but as a boxing fight, this is the fight everyone is looking forward to. This is the fight the fans are looking forward to, that the media has been asking about,” Loeffler said.
“And GGG, I get a lot of comments, a lot of messages on social media from fans in Mexico saying, please knock out Canelo, don’t let it in the judges’ hands this time and GGG is going to come out that way.”
Loeffler also made light of Alvarez’ blaming failing two drug tests in February on tainted meat.
“I know Oscar [De La Hoya] is down there in Mexico with Canelo. Make sure, Canelo, less Mexican meat, more Mexican style this time, September 15. Make sure everything goes the right way,” Loeffler said.
“There’s two warriors getting in the ring. The gloves are off this time around. Both guys, you know, feel disrespected by what happened last May 5, so I think the fans are going to win coming up September 15 when these guys get in the ring with each other.”
