Golovkin v Canelo animosity increased, says WBC President

Canelo v Golovkin De La Hoya


World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman says GGG vs Canelo 2 on September 15th will be an even more dramatic and titanic contest for the Green and Gold middleweight belt.

He said: “The rematch has the potential to be even greater than their first encounter.

“There’s a tremendous animosity between them, with both absolutely determined to show and prove who’s the best, up in the ring.”

Referring to the protracted and sometimes agonizingly drawn-out negotiations finally leading to agreement, Mauricio said: “Let’s hope both have a good preparation for the fight.

“Let’s see what they can bring and achieve for expectant Boxing fans of the World.”

Referring to the nine years age difference Mauricio added: “Fighters never know just when their legs are going to go or when they will lose a fraction of a second.

“But Gennady always comes to fight in phenomenally great shape.”
