Gomez: Canelo Wants To Punish GGG
Canelo Alvarez is angry. The 27 year old superstar has been quiet since his suspension for two failed drug tests, heading into his cancelled fight against Gennady Golovkin.
Alvarez has heard what’s been said, especially Golovkin’s constant taunts and calling Alvarez a “dirty fighter.”
And while Alvarez has been silent, Golden Boy Promotions President, Eric Gomez, has been leading the charge in not only maintaining Alvarez’ innocence, but biting back at Golovkin.
“He wants to rip Gennady’s head off,” Gomez told BoxingScene.com this week at the Sadam Ali media round table.
“Gennady has taken a lot of cheap shots at him. … So, you know, if they really wanna do the fight, if they’re not afraid, then let’s do the fight. Canelo has something ready for Golovkin. He has just p***** off a lion.”
Gomez is hopeful that he and Golovkin’s promoter, Tom Loeffler, can finalize a deal for a rematch as quickly as possible, and to let them know its “put up or shut up” time.
“We’ll see,” Gomez said.
“If they’re not afraid, let’s get the contracts signed. We’re ready to go. They’re the ones coming up with all these ideas and, you know, ‘We don’t know if we’re gonna fight him next or not,’ and all this bullsh*t.’ Come on, put your money where your mouth is.”
