Canelo-GGG Ready For “Big Drama Show”
On Tuesday, Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin would make their grand arrivals at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, for their highly anticipated middleweight showdown on September 15th.
Golovkin, who would arrive prior to Alvarez is looking to put his feelings aside to get the win on Saturday night. “Mexican Independence Day is a huge day for boxing and boxing fans,” Golovkin told fans upon his arrival to the event’s hotel. “I am a professional. I am not nervous but I am very excited to be able to defend my titles on a major Mexican national holiday for the third consecutive time.
My Mexican fans like true fighters and true heroes. This may be a rematch but it is a different story, a better story, a bigger story. This fight is the biggest level for me, 100%. I am healthy and strong. I had my best training camp. I have the fight I want against the fighter I want and on the biggest stage. Why shouldn’t I be happy? If Canelo gives me a chance and fights like he claims he will, I will knock him out. It is time for the Big Drama Show.”
Alvarez is looking to put all of the comments made by Canelo Alvarez and his team to rest, and is tired of hearing the criticisms for his testing positive for clenbuterol in February. “I’m bothered by all the stupid things they’ve been saying,” Alvarez claimed on Tuesday.
“I don’t know which one to laugh about or get angry about at this point. But their statements are all excuses for the loss they will take this Saturday. I have been using all of these statements as motivation for my fight on Saturday. I know that it can be dangerous to go in the ring with a hot head, but I have experience. I know how to use this anger in the ring intelligently. I’m happy for all the support the fans give me, and I will give them a great fight this Saturday.”
