Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin 3: A pointless fight for GGG?

On September 17, we will see Saul "Canelo" Alvarez face Gennady Golovkin once again in the ring.

GGG told BoxingScene.com and other reporters that he never felt he needed the third fight to retire: "I could have my career and be happy with my career even without the third fight without Canelo."

Golovkin sees financial benefit

The 40-year-old boxer noted that the fight against the Mexican would allow him to retire from the ring with a bountiful bank account.

"Of course, this third fight will help me retire from a financial point of view," he expressed.

Canelo Alvarez doesn't take away GGG's dreams

Although Canelo has shown on several occasions his animosity for Golovkin, the Kazakh expressed that Saul Alvarez does not represent a thorn in his side and that he does not think much of him.

"I don't even think about him (...) Whether you like him or not. She's not a pretty girl. I have a wife, I love my wife. I think about her. I don't think about him," he pointed out.

How did their previous fights go?

They faced each other for the first time in 2017 and the battle ended in a controversial draw, in what several consider should have been a win for Golovkin.

A year later came the rematch in which Canelo was the winner, however, some spectators considered that it should have ended in a draw or even a win for the Kazakhstan native

On September 17 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, we will see the outcome of the trilogy, one of the most anticipated in recent years in boxing.
