Boxing: Canelo can’t afford to lose to 40-year-old Gennady Golovkin


Aaccording Chris Algeri, Saul Alvarez has “a big risk” against Gennady Golovkin on September 17.

Algieri said that Canelo is not expected to lose to the 40-year-old fighter. Losing to GGG will mean an uncharted risk for the Mexican fighter.

The former boxer illustrated that Golovkin is past his prime, and is now moving up in weight to fight the super middleweight champion.

Moving up to 168 pounds, Golovkin has nothing to lose and a lot to gain.

Canelo’s record is 57-2-2, 39 of those wins by knockout. However, Golovkin could

change Canelo’s win stats.

Canelo is the favorite to win the fight, but the boxer with more pressure:

Canelo Alvarez would have no problem overcoming his opponent.

Nevertheless, the fighter has more pressure than his opponent.

According Algerby Canello defeat against Dmitry Bivol moved many fibers inside the Mexican fighter.

“It’s a fight that will come a little late, but I think it had to happen. It would be foolish to leave money on the table for these two fighters,” Chris Algieri told Fight Hub TV.

“I said it even before the Bivol fight because I had a good idea that (Bivol) was going to beat Canelo that night, and he did.”

“But I said even if he did, it doesn’t matter. The fight (Canelo vs. Golovkin III) can still happen,” Algieri added.

Again, in the interview with Fight Hub, the kickboxing veteran exposed the risk Canelo Alvarez takes after the loss against Bivol.

He also warned that besides the latest loss, other things are brewing against Gennady Golovkin.

“Canelo took a big risk; he put on some weight and fought an undefeated young champion (Bivol). He loses, but he really comes back to his real weight class to fight GGG,” he pointed out.

“The question (the doubt) for me is the weight. I’m curious to know GGG at 168 pounds. He never fought at 168,” Chris Algieri said.

“So he’s moving forward to fight Canelo for his undisputed titles. Age plus weight, that could be a lot of questions for GGG and a lot to move forward,” Chris Algieri said in the interview.
