Golovkin says he will risk all crowns against Canelo

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

LOS ANGELES: Un­beaten Gen­nady Golovkin of Kaza­khstan will risk all his world mid­dleweight ti­tles when he faces Saul “Canelo” Al­varez in Septem­ber, but the Mex­i­can won’t be try­ing to win them all. State­ments from both fight­ers’ camps on Fri­day in­di­cated Al­varez would risk his liner and Ring mag­a­zine ti­tles and seek Golovkin’s World Box­ing As­so­ci­a­tion and In­ter­na­tional Box­ing Fed­er­a­tion ti­tles. Golovkin will also risk his World Box­ing Coun­cil crown, but it would be­come va­cant should he lose in the Septem­ber 16 show­down at Las Vegas, Ne­vada. Golovkin, 37-0 with 33 knock­outs, has the ma­jor belts in the divi­sion. But Al­varez, 49-1-1 with 34 knock­outs, had owned the WBC ti­tle be­fore va­cat­ing it last year. It was then awarded to Golovkin and re­port­edly that irked Al­varez, who vowed not to fight for it if he met Golovkin in the ring. — AFP
