Canelo GGG 2 Post fight quotes:
I showed my victory with facts. He was the one who was backing up. I feel satisfied because I gave a great fight. It was a clear victory.
That was a great fight, but in the end, it was a victory for Mexico. And again, it was an opportunity, and I want to shout out to my opponent, the best in the sport of boxing. I am a great fighter, and I showed it tonight. If the people want another round, I’ll do it again. But for right now, I will enjoy time with my family.
I’m not going to say who won tonight, because the victory belongs to Canelo according to the judges. I thought it was a very good fight for the fans, and very exciting. I thought I fought better than he did. (When asked about a third fight) Under the right conditions, yes.
Note: Golovkin has taken 8-stitches, the cut was 5 cm. long on his right eye. And the stitches were performed by Dr. Perlman Hicks.
We had a great fight, the one we expected the first time around. I had it close going into the 12th round. We had good judges who saw it from different angles – I can’t complain about the decision, but it’s close enough to warrant a third fight. Canelo fought a great fight, congratulations.
