Via Sam Volz: Eddie Hearn says Canelo Alvarez wants to take out Gennadiy Golovkin on September 17 and side with him, knowing he’s finished his career.
Hearn says that Canelo (57-2-2, 39 KOs) doesn’t just want to beat 40-year-old Golovkin. He wants to destroy him completely.
It is believed that the main reason Canelo wanted to get rid of GGG and bring him into retirement stemmed from all the “s***” he said about himself in the past after testing positive for PED twice. clenbuterol.
Golovkin and his former coach Abel Sanchez had a field day criticizing Canelo after his positive trials, and he doesn’t seem to want to forget it.
As a result, Canelo is going into a three-way fight against Golovkin with a lot of bad blood, and he wants to get a pound of his own flesh in the ring on September 17 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
“I think the 168 lb limit will really help Gennadiy Golovkin in this war,” said Eddie Hearn ESNEWS. “People say, ‘Why? He’s been at 160 his entire career for that reason.
“I think he finds it very difficult to resist the weight [Ryota] Murata,” Hearn continued on Golovkin. “I feel he needs that stability in a fight. He can’t lose weight in this fight.
“He has to be strong in this fight, and I think it’s going to really help him at 168,” Hearn said.
Normally, it would get Golovkin a fight at 168, but not against Canelo, who is shooting at all eight turrets and is still at the peak of his career.
If Golovkin hadn’t been so old, slow, and rusty, it would have been very beneficial for him to enter the match against Canelo at the age of 168.
“Receiving a defeat, there is a lot of pressure on Canelo Alvarez in this fight. He can’t lose this fight,” Hearn said.
“Be confused about it, Canelo Alvarez wants to destroy Gennadiy Golovkin. He doesn’t just want to beat him. He said to me, ‘I want to be on his side, have taken him down, knowing that his career is over.’
“So he was fired. Gennadiy, wait until fight week. There’s going to be a lot of heck of a fight week,” Hearn said.
