“That’s the way I want this fight to end,” Canelo Alvarez claimed during a Wednesday conference call to promote his highly anticipated rematch with Gennady Golovkin on September 15th, “by knockout.” The first fight between the two top middleweights went down last year in Vegas, only to end in a controversial draw.
Although most feel Golovkin deserved to win the first fight, Canelo clearly feels the initial experience of facing Golovkin in the ring will pay off for him this time.
Since testing positive for the banned substance, Canelo has seen his reputation clouded by suspicion.
Golovkin, for one, has openly made it clear he feels Canelo is a cheat.
“I learned who’s really there for me.” Aside from the drama of testing positive for a banned substance, the fighter will now also enter the ring without having fought in around a year.
