GGG: Canelo-Jacobs Was No Drama Show

Sitting in the audience of Saturday’s middleweight unification fight between Canelo Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs, the former unified middleweight champion, Gennady Golovkin was simply unimpressed.

While Alvarez’ win would get them both close to a trilogy fight in the fall, and Alvarez adding the IBF title to the WBC and WBA titles at 160 pounds.

“Frankly I was expecting much more, it was like a sparring match. It was a little boring because they are both high level boxers, there was no drama, they should have given more to the audience,” Golovkin said following the fight.

“I saw no emotions in this fight. I didn’t anything special, it was a good sparring match.”

Now, Alvarez is eyeing a unification fight with Demetrius Andrade, but with DAZN and most of the boxing community calling for a third fight, GGG is ready to bring the Big Drama Show.

“Of course I really want this fight, because for me it’s more than boxing. For me it’s about pleasing the public, pleasing the fans and bringing them a big drama show,” Golovkin said.
