Gennadiy Golovkin Looks Forward To Trilogy Fight With Canelo Alvarez
Gennadiy Golovkin is open to fighting unified champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez for the third time, but has revealed that the Canelo hasn’t yet shown any interest in a trilogy fight.
“This fight is possible,” Golovkin told Sky Sports. “Theoretically nothing has changed. There are certain questions which have been posed. They are still open, they remain unanswered.”
The first time both boxing veterans clashed in 2017, the match ended in a draw.
However, Canelo won the rematch via majority decision to hand GGG his career’s first loss.
Both fights were extremely close. In fact, the Kazakhistan-native believes he should have been awarded more points in the first showdown.
Canelo has been on a rampage in 2021.
He has been hailed as the world’s No 1 pound-for-pound fighter after beating Caleb Plant to become the undisputed super-middleweight champion.
But Triple GGG doesn’t give two cents about the Mexican’s stardom.
“We fought, I know who he is. I don’t think about him at all,” Golovkin said. “It isn’t something I don’t give any thought to.”
GGG will be seen in action on December 29 in Japan against Ryota Murata. The fight has been scheduled to unify the IBF and WBA middleweight titles.
Canelo is eyeing a title in the fifth division against WBC cruiserweight champion Ilunga Makabu. Their fight was announced by the WBC in its 59th convention.
