Los Angeles, Ca— After a year of the controversial draw last September Saul “Canelo ” Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin host a Media workout for the fans and the media at the new Banc of California Stadium in Los Anges California this past Sunday. Both fighters looked in great shape and good spirits. The first fighter to meet the press was Gennady Golovkin. He was dressed in workout wear and had a smile on his face.
“Canelo, he is not a champion. He is a liar who has no respect for the sport of boxing or its fans. I want to stay world champion and bring all my belts home. I am ready to star in another Big Drama Show. I do not think about Canelo in training. I am not worried about him. I only worry about doing my job in training camp and doing my job in the ring against Canelo on September 15. In the last fight, I did not feel any real power from Canelo. Just slaps. He is not the hardest puncher I have fought, but he is fast and quick. He is the most skilled fighter I have fought. He is a very good fighter.
Later the WBO Junior Middleweight World Champion Jaime Mungia greet the press after Golvking hit the ring to work out in front of thousands of screaming fans.
“Fighting on this card is a great opportunity, especially on a date that is so important for Mexicans. I have the obligation to give a great fight to all the fans. I know Brandon Cook is a tough opponent. He is older than me and has a lot of experience. But I think I’m stronger than him and have a reach advantage. I’m confident I’ll walk away with my hand raised.
Mungia felt fully rested and ready to fight in September. Canelo was the last fighter to greet the media.
“We’re getting close to the fight, and I feel good. This fight is personal because of all that’s been said, and it will be difficult to regain the respect that we once had. The statements that have been made about me have given me more motivation to train harder. I have watched the first fight several times. The error that I made was that I had opportunities to counter that I needed to have taken advantage of. I need to do that in the rematch.
Both Canelo and GGG are eager to get in the ring, and both have promise fireworks and a knockout. Will the fight live to the hype only time will tell this September 15th in Las Vegas Nevada?
