FIGHT OF THE YEAR
TUESDAY August 29, 2017
JUST days after Floyd Mayweather trounces Conor Mcgregor, the promotion for boxing’s best fight of 2017 steps up another gear as Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin take part in media workouts in front of huge crowds in Los Angeles.
“I know what I have in front of me,” Alvarez says. “I know he’s a strong fighter. He is the most dangerous opponent of my career, but I’m ready for him and what’s next to come. That’s why we prepared – to give the fans a beautiful fight. This fight’s for you; this fight’s for all the fans who have been asking for it. We know that in fights, it takes two to tango. I’m ready, and you know what you’ll get from me. Let’s just hope he brings it as well.
“I’m gonna do and use whatever I need to be one step ahead of Gennady in the ring. Without a doubt, our fight on September 16 will be one of the great fights in the history of boxing.”
Unified world middleweight champion Golovkin says: “This is a fight boxing can be proud of. It is boxing’s biggest fight. It is a fight for history. It is a real Mexican fight. Everyone will remember this fight. Canelo is No. 1 in Mexico, a country known for great fighters. He is very special.”
