Canelo: GGG Rivalry “Is Over” But Trilogy Fight Possible
Standing in the middle of T-Mobile Arena on Saturday night, Canelo Alvarez added another world title to his resume.
With only one championship remaining for him to become undisputed at 160 pounds, he was asked if he wanted one more mega-fight with Gennady Golovkin, who he would have a controversial draw and then a split-decision victory over in 2017 and ’18.
“For me, it’s over,” Alvarez said about his rivalry with Golovkin. “But if the people want another fight, we’ll do it again, and I’ll beat him again.”
With WBO champion Demetrius Andrade, or fellow WBA super middleweight champion Callum Smith in-line for a fight with Alvarez, or a potential rematch with Daniel Jacobs at middleweight or super middleweight, Alvarez just wants what will be the best fight.
“I’m just looking for the biggest challenge,” Alvarez said of what would be next for him.
“That’s all I want. … That’s why I’m here. That’s what I was born for. To fight. To defend what’s mine. I’ll fight anyone.”
