Canelo, GGG Post fight Comments

By Miguel Maravilla

Gennadiy Golovkin: “This fight was more tactics…like chess. Today Canelo is better.”

[On if he will continue his career] “Absolutely. I have a great plan. I have a lot of opponents…remember I’ve got three belts. I’ll come back. I’m still champion.”

Canelo Alvarez: He’s a tough fighter. I need surgery on my left hand after this. It was really bad. But I’m a warrior. That’s why I’m here.

[On a rematch with Dimitri Bivol next] “Of course, everyone knows. We’ll see what happens in that fight (Bivol vs. Zurdo). But I need rest. I need to get strength in my hand and my body and then come back stronger than ever…and I will beat him!” Continue reading “Canelo, GGG Post fight Comments”

Undisputed super middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (58-2-2, 39 KOs) settled his trilogy with Gennadiy “GGG” Golovkin (42-2-1, 37 KOs) with a clear twelve round unanimous decision on Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Early rounds were close with an edge for Canelo. Golovkin’s face marked up quickly. Canelo increasingly upped the aggression while the 40-year-old GGG couldn’t seem to pull the trigger on his power punches. A desperate Golovkin rallied a bit down the stretch, but it was too little, too late. Scores were surprisingly close at 116-112, 115-113, 115-113.

By Miguel Maravilla at ringside

IBF #6 super middleweight Ali Akhmedov (19-1 14 KOs) of Kazakhstan put in work in going the distance and pitching a shoutout against Philadelphia veteran “King” Gabriel Rosado (26-16-1, 15 KOs). Boxing at a fast pace in the early rounds, sizing on another, Akhmedov and Rosado stood busy. Akhmedov connected with a straight right to begin the third round, but Rosado kept his composure and stood busy. Stalking in the fourth, Akhmedov began to let his hands go as he pumped the jab and followed up with right hands, later in the round Rosado swung the right wildly. In the fifth, Akhmedov connected with a solid right hand that stopped Rosado’s momentum as the Kazakh boxed patiently.

In the sixth, Akhmedov stood busy boxing keeping his distance from the stalking Rosado. It was Akhmedov dictating the pace outworking the always tough Rosado, in the eighth the Kazakh let his hands go unloading a combination as Rosado shelled up. As always Rosado came with everything and was disappointing as Akhmedov boxed and worked his way to hard fought decision.

After completing ten rounds, all three judges scored the bout 100-90. Continue reading “Canelo-GGG 3 Undercard Results”

Teiken Promotions announced a long-anticipated world title unification bout of WBC light-flyweight titlist Kenshiro Teraji (19-1, 11 KOs) and WBA super champ Hiroto Kyoguchi (16-0, 11 KOs), both of Japan, at the Saitama Super Arena, Saitama, on November 1.

Teraji, who recently regained his belt from compatriot Masamichi Yabuki, said, “I wish to unify all belts and this is the first step for ultimate unification.” Kyoguchi, two years his junior at 28, also confidently said, “I feel highly motivated to face Kenshiro to acquire another belt in green color.”

When both were amateur university boxers, Teraji won three times to one for Kyoguchi. We will see a unification bout between Japanese contestants since WBC 105-pound ruler Kazuto Ioka defeated WBA titleholder Akira Yaegashi after a grueling battle in 2012.
