Sulaiman Shocked By GGG’s Remarks
Following Gennady Golovkin’s claims that Canelo Alvarez and Oscar De La Hoya are “dirty” and claimed they should be thrown in jail, WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman admitted he’s seen a darker side to the WBC welterweight titleholder.
This week Golovkin claimed not only that he thinks Canelo has cheated before the lead-up to their May 5th rematch in Vegas, he believes Alvarez did so leading up to their fight in September 2017.
Speaking with ESPN Deportes, Sulaiman hopes for an amicable solution to an ongoing saga.
“What we are seeing is that Golovkin is simply demonstrating that he is a human being, for the first time he is acting like a boxer,” Sulaiman told ESPN Deportes. “He has always handled himself differently, he has never spoken out against anything and against anyone. He has the right to demand that an investigation be carried out, but I feel that he is mistaken in mixing up previous subjects… that is not the GGG that we know
“I knew about the complaints regarding Canelo’s hand-wraps, but not about what he’s saying (taking PED’s before the first fight and needle marks).”
“I feel he is confusing things as a sign of the frustration that has been accumulating throughout all this time, where he had give in to everything to get the first fight and now the second fight… he simply exploded and before he never did, but unfortunately he’s confusing things.”
