Canelo vs GGG live stream will be on Pay per view HBO. Golovkin Rematch Thoughts The rematch between Gennady Golovkin “GGG” vs Canelo Alvarez is expected to be the biggest fight in the boxing world for 2018. The score was left unsettled after their controversial first fight nearly 12 months ago and as a result the stage is set to come the 15th of September. GGG has remained quiet about what happened during the first fight but recently in the build up to the rematch he has opened up about “that” Alvarez decision.
The reference to ‘that’ decision is aimed at the scorecard scored by judge Adalaide Byrd. Byrd scored the fight 118-110 in favor of Alvarez, her scorecard reflected a different story in comparison to her fellow judges. GGG came clean about his thoughts over that scorecard saying that: “It was terrible for me, it was terrible for the people.” He continued to express his disgust by remarking that: “Of course it was terrible for the sport.” GGG has good reason to express himself in this manner because he landed a considerable amount of punches more than what Alvarez did, GGG was in control for most of the fight and for a judge to basically score as if the complete opposite was true came across as a slap in the face to the sport.
GGG seems to have taken the ordeal in his stride and he is ready and focused on the rematch. “This time the world will be watching the fight and the judges” GGG hit the nail right on the head when he recently said that in an interview, this fight will be watched under a microscope for multiple different reasons. GGG has continued to express how excited he is about the fight, with the help of trainer Abel Sanchez GGG believes that he is in the best shape of his career and that he will be up to the challenge of Alvarez once again. GGG recently said that: “What I have to prove I only have to prove to myself and no one else.” GGG seems to be in a great space heading into this rematch.
Alvarez’s preparations haven’t been smooth sailing up to this point, he has had to deal with a 6-month drug suspension as well as a host of other controversial issues including the hand wrapping technique used by his trainer. GGG was very outspoken about the lenient ban that Alvarez received and he will want to back up his words by being victorious in this battle.
