GGG: The “Real Mexican Fight” Is Canelo-GGG
After his fight with Floyd Mayweather this past Saturday night in Las Vegas, Conor McGregor, said he forced Mayweather to “finally fight like a Mexican.”
Gennady Golovkin, who faces Canelo Alvarez on Mexican Independence Day on September 16th, saw nothing that resembled a “Mexican style” in that fight..
But he promises that everyone will be treated to a “real Mexican fight” on September 16.
“This is a fight boxing can be proud of. It is boxing’s biggest fight. It is a fight for history. It is a real Mexican fight. Everyone will remember this fight. Canelo is No. 1 in Mexico, a country known for great fighters. He is very special. This is our Mexican Independence Day holiday weekend gift to boxing and to boxing fans. The fans have been asking for this fight for years. We are going to give a great battle. I am very excited to be finally fighting in Las Vegas, but I am more excited that it is against Canelo. The energy will be off the charts. Let me repeat — this is a fight boxing can be proud of.”
We will have more for you today on FIGHT SPORTS from Golovkin as he speaks to the media with two weeks remaining until he faces Canelo Alvarez in Las Vegas on Pay-Per-View.
