Saul "Canelo" Alvarez sees eye-to-eye with Gennadiy Golovkin ahead of big trilogy fight this September 17 in Las Vegas.
This past weekend in Hollywood, Alvarez reminded the boxing world why he truly dislikes Golovkin and sees this third fight as a personal battle against the Eastern European.
Canelo says that not only does he see this fight as "personal" but he also mentioned how much he would enjoying sending GGG into boxing retirement with another defeat.
There are many things Alvarez dislikes about Golovkin, but none other than what Canelo says is "pretend to be someone else" when the cameras are on.
“It’s very personal for me,” Alvarez said with a stern look. “This is the way I am. I don’t pretend to be some other person. I don’t say things to media and other place, then come here and pretend to be someone else. I don’t say anything I don’t want to say. It’s personal for me.
The Mexican warrior is coming off his second career loss against Russian WBA light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol in early May.
And while Alvarez did indeed went forward with his rematch clause with the Russian champion, he has decided to get his trilogy opportunity completed this September as GGG is only getting older. He's now 40 years old.
Alvarez said this past weekend that he cannot wait to step into the ring with Golovkin once again, a boxer that he considers to be a fake nice guy when it's convenient.
“He talked a lot of things. That’s why it’s personal. I just can’t wait to be in the ring," Alvarez said. “He’s two different people. He pretends to be a nice guy but he’s not. He’s an assh-le. He really is. He pretends to be a nice guy. ‘Oh yes, I’m just here for the fans. I’m happy.’ Then in other places, he just talks a lot of sh-t.”
