Canelo: What Has Golovkin Done Since He Fought Me? Nothing!

Given the excitement generated by last week’s trilogy fight between heavyweight rivals Tyson Fury (31-0-1, 22 KO’s) and Deontay Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KO’s), some fans are wondering if we will ever see a third showdown between Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez (56 -1-2, 38 KO’s) and Gennadiy Golovkin (41-1-1, 36 KO’s).

Like the first encounter between Fury and Wilder, the first bout between Canelo and Golovkin ended in a controversial twelve round draw.

Canelo won a close twelve round decision in their rematch in 2018.

Golovkin is still competing at middleweight, where he holds the IBF title. He is expected to face WBA champion Ryota Murata in a trilogy fight in December.

Canelo has been competing above the middleweight limit for the last few years.

He captured a light heavyweight title in late 2019, with a knockout of Sergey Kovalev.

Canelo would then drop down to super middleweight, where he’s captured the WBC, WBA, WBO world titles.

In the main event of a Showtime Pay-Per-View card on November 6, he will face IBF champion Caleb Plant in a full division unification.

Canelo is not ruling out the possibility of facing Golovkin for a third time, but he also believes that his rival has not accomplished much of anything since their second fight.

Canelo has fought six times since their second meeting, while Golovkin has only been in the ring three times.

“I am ready for everything,” said Canelo to ESPN Deportes.

“I am ready for everything, I am ready to make the best fights. You [journalists] hang on to that [the trilogy fight]. I’m doing more important things than him. Where is he? What has he done since he fought me? Nothing.”

“I am doing other important things in my career. Beating champions, undefeated fighters.”
