Canelo Golovkin 2 will take place Saturday Cinco de Mayo (May 5th) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas live on HBO Pay per view.
Here is what Canelo and his camp had to say
Saul “Canelo” Alvarez: “This fight I’m approaching it as it is the 13th round, a new fight and if I was the better fighter. We want the knockout to leave no doubt. We both want to win convincingly.”
“I felt comfortable the first fight 160 and I will be more comfortable the second fight. I did hurt him with a right to the temple but he never hurt me. We have to risk more in this fight.”
Eddie Reynoso: “We will look into training in the night altitude for camp by any disciplined fighter will be well prepared training anywhere sea leaves or high altitude.”
