“GGG Means Nothing To Me”
While Canelo Alvarez admits he is taking a risk by moving up to 175 pounds in his next fight, the unified middleweight champion of the world feels his rival Gennadiy Golovkin is doing the exact opposite.
Golovkin, who looks to regain one of the world titles he lost in 2018 against Sergiy Derevyanchenko on October 5th at Madison Square Garden.
“The truth is that I did not visualize that fight [with Golovkin] right now,” Alvarez said of a trilogy fight with Golovkin. “I am taking these risks, these fights for my career, and right now he does not represent anything to me. I beat him twice and he does not represent a greater challenge for me to have a fight with him,”
“I am taking these challenges, I think he [Golovkin] should take these challenges in his career, but he has not taken any risks… it really does not represent any challenge to fight him again… so I am doing this [fight with Kovalev], big fights, big challenges for my career and the love of boxing.
“This is making history, it motivates me to make history, climb two divisions, win four titles, it represents more to me, adds more motivation and more risks,” Alvarez continued to ESPN Deportes.
“It represents much more to me than the other fight. I am taking the risks of this magnitude to make history.”
