‘I won the first fight!’ – Canelo wants convincing rematch win, admits Golovkin trilogy is possible
Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez is aiming to put more pressure on Gennady Golovkin when the pair collide in a massive Cinco de Mayo rematch.
Canelo seemingly lost out to Golovkin in their initial September clash for the majority of middleweight marbles, although managed to sneak out of the contest with a draw.
This immediately led the top 160 pounders down the road to a return, which is set to take place on May 5 at a venue to be confirmed in the coming days.
Speaking regarding his chances of taking Golovkin’s four championship belts and his performance in Las Vegas last time out, Canelo is doing all he can to make sure he puts the result beyond doubt in his favor.
“I’ve seen it like 10 times, I think I made it a big fight. I won the fight by two points,” Canelo told sdpnoticias.com
“I think that to making it more convincing I just have to throw more punches and nothing else. We are planning to concentrate before the fight in the mountains of Colorado to get in the best condition.”
“We are looking for a convincing victory, and that’s why we’re going this time and we’re going to prepare (much harder). I’ll give my best in training so that the fight will be easier.”
On the possibility of a trilogy clash later in the year, Canelo added: “I think there is a high percentage that there may be a third fight. Let’s see how the second one develops.
“In the first one, there was a lot of talk about the rematch, it came out to be done, we hope it’s a great fight and that the public will enjoy it,” said the 27 year-old.
Madison Square Garden is bidding to beat the original venue of the first meeting, the T-Mobile Arena in Nevada to staging the contest, although the boxing capital of the world remains the favorite.
