GGG and Trainer Media Quotes:

Gennady Glovkin: “This wasn’t like Canelo not being ready. It was Golden Boy not being ready. We have been talking about this fight for three years,” said Golovkin, boxing’s longest-reigning world champion. “Finally Canelo AND Golden Boy are ready for this fight. First step to history. Everyone will remember this fight. It is the biggest fight of all.”

“I am not Julio César Chȧvez, Jr. and Canelo is no Danny Jacobs. There are no survivors in my fights,” said Golovkin. “Boxing is a business. If I look great against Jacobs…if I knocked him out, I would not be getting this fight with Canelo now. Jacobs was a very good fighter and gave me good learning experience going 12 rounds. I have never done that before. I felt amazing going 12 rounds for the first time. Jacobs gives everyone problems.”

Canelo Alvarez:

“Even if it is one pound or five, both the fighter and the opponent can feel the difference in the ring. Whether it’s punching power or being able to utilize your body to avoid being tossed around, there is a change. I felt great going up in weight to fight against Chavez, Jr., but that’s a testament to the hard work that Chepo, Eddy and I had put into training camp. I had a lot of energy, and I didn’t lose my natural skill that a lot of critics thought I would by going up in weight.

“When I was a young boxer starting out, of course you never imagine all of this coming true. However, in my heart I’ve always wanted this, and I’ve always dreamed of the day in which my discipline would pave the way to where I am.

“Anything in this world is achievable if you have the passion for it, and I have given my life and blood to the sport of boxing. Gilberto Román, Óscar “Chololo” Larios, Javier “Chatito” Jáuregui, are all world champions with whom I grew up watching and learned from. Also, the legendary José Ángel Mantequilla Nápoles was someone extremely influential in my career. I can’t explain the feeling of possibly being compared to them, it’s an honor. However, I don’t think I could compare to their legendary status because I’m creating my own. This is my era.”
