Canelo Alvarez Says GGG Fights Only Easy Opponents (Video)
I know what you’re thinking. Why won’t Canelo fight GGG then?
On Monday, the current king of ducking a fighter Canelo Alvarez threw shots at Gennady Golovkin’s level of opponents. This is the same Canelo who decided to give up his WBC middleweight title to put off a fight with Golovkin (35-0, 32 knockouts) until next year.
“All of his opponents have been the easy road,” Alvarez told RingTV.com in a phone interview. “He has never fought someone who has really pushed him or taken him to the next level. All of his opponents have been easy opponents.”
“The main difference is that Brook is going up two weight classes,” said Alvarez, who has been roasted for facing 154-pound titleholder Liam Smith on Sept. 17. “I only made Amir Khan go up one weight class. People say it was two but it was only one and this guy Brook is moving up two to fight GGG at 160. And that’s the reason it’s good not to speak or make comments on things that are out there.”
Canelo said he has a good idea when Golovkin will finally face a quality foe: When he fights him, possibly in the fall of 2017. “Of course,” Canelo said, “I’m going to beat him.”
Basically, when GGG is anywhere around Canelo, he be quiet. But when he leave, Canelo be talking again.
