Golovkin and Canelo quick quotes


WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin and former champion Canelo Alvarez participated in a long distance press conference via Facebook from their respective camps in Big Bear, California, and Guadalajara, Mexico. Both fighters spoke in their native languages using translators. Golovkin didn’t display his trademark smile.

Canelo Alvarez

[On testing positive for Clenbuteral] There’s no need to talk about that.

[On Golovkin-Martirosyan] You can’t call that a fight. He had no opponent.

[On his fan support] I’ve always had detractors, but I have many more that love and support me.

[On their September 15 rematch] That little respect that I had for him has been lost and come September 15 in the ring it’s going to be just him and I and we’ll see.

Gennady Golovkin

[On Canelo’s May 5 cancellation] I was disappointed. The fans were disappointed.

[On fighting Vanes Martirosyan] Fans wanted me to fight. Why shouldn’t I fight on such an important date?

[On Oscar de la Hoya’s claim that all of Mexico will be rooting for Canelo] I don’t always agree with what Oscar says. I don’t believe all Mexico will be rooting for Canelo.

[On their September 15 rematch] The more Canelo can show, the more interesting the fight will be.

Zurdo Ramirez: “He was undefeated. He came with a lot of hunger to try to take away my world title. I’m not happy with my performance, but I got the job done. I’m still a world champion. I want to go back to the gym to start training and evolve as a fighter. I want to unify titles and I want to be one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the world.”

Canelo: GGG only cares about money

In an interview on the ESPN Deportes Friday, Canelo Alvarez stated that he’s through being cordial with WBC/WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin and that the Golovkin camp are hypocrites who only care about money, not honor.

There is so much bad blood between the two fighters that there will not be a kick-off press conference or press tour and the fighters won’t meet face to face until fight week. They’ll do a split-screen press event on Facebook next week and that’s as close as they’ll get.

* * *

Also both camps released statements…

Canelo Alvarez: “The truth is that this fight means a lot to me because of all that has happened and all that has been said. I will prove with my fists that I am the best, and Golovkin will eat all of his words and speculations. I will demonstrate who is the best when I defeat Golovkin soundly on September 15 during Independence Day Weekend, and I’ll make it clear that Mexican boxing is the best.”

Gennady Golovkin: “I am happy that the deal is done and the rematch is back on. I am ready to get back to work in Big Bear with Abel. This is the biggest fight for boxing, the fight everyone wants. It is a fight to see who is best. It is for boxing history. I am happy to be defending my titles on Mexican Independence Day, a great stage for true Mexican-Style boxing. Canelo can walk to the ring last. Canelo can be introduced last. The important thing is who leaves the ring last, and that will be me, as world champion, the people’s champion. See you at the Big Drama Show.” Continue reading “Canelo: GGG only cares about money”

The winner will be the first cruiserweight ever to unify the titles in the four-belt era.

Aleksandr Usyk: “I am once again traveling to the territory of the rival. I did it with success in the quarter- and semi-final and now I am going to Moscow to win!”

Murat Gassiev: “I was ready to fight Usyk anywhere in the world. I am sure Usyk and I will make a great fight. The winner takes it all!”

Plans to hold the final of the inaugural season in May had to be revised after Usyk declared that he had sustained an elbow injury during his training camp. The injury was checked by Comosa approved medical staff who agreed with the extent of the injury and recovery timeframe. This meant that the cruiserweight final date, and therefore venue, had to be moved.

Berchelt crushes Barros, retains WBC 130lb title

WBC super featherweight champion Miguel “Alacrán” Berchelt (34-1, 30 KOs) destroyed former champ Jonathan Víctor “Yoni” Barros (41–6-1, 22 KOs) via a third round TKO on Saturday night at the Poliórum Zamná in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. Berchelt dropped Barros with a left hook at the end of round two, then floored Barros again in round three. Soon after, Barros’ corner entered the ring to protect their man from further damage. Barros wasn’t happy about being pulled out. Time was 1:53. It was Berchelt’s third successful defense.

“I felt strong, there was no way the Argentinean was beating me in front of my people in Yucatan,” stated Berchelt afterward. “Thank God. I feel happy and I gave them a triumph.

“Now for Micky Roman, you have to answer for everything you said. Get ready because I’m going to tear your head off. We’ll be ready to put you back into reality. You’re going to swallow every word you said about me. I will answer you with my fists and my crushing victory.” Continue reading “Berchelt crushes Barros, retains WBC 130lb title”

Former middleweight title challenger Martin Murray (37-4-1, 17 KOs) dethroned WBC silver middleweight champion Roberto “Amenaza” Garcia (41-4, 24 KOs) by twelve round unanimous decision on Saturday night at The O2 Arena in London. Ugly fight. Garcia was questionably deducted points in rounds two and nine by referee Hector Afu. Scores were 116-111, 118-109, 118-108.

The winner was billed as likely being made mandatory challenger for WBC/WBA middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin, but that seems unlikely. Golovkin previously stopped Murray in a 2015 defense. Continue reading “Murray outpoints Garcia for WBC silver”
