Canelo vs. Golovkin 3: Why a loss for the Mexican would be catastrophic?

Saul Canelo Alvarez will have a lot at stake in his fight against Kazakhstan's Gennady Golovkin and a second consecutive defeat in his career would be catastrophic for the Mexican fighter, assured the president of the World Boxing Council, Mauricio Sulaiman.

Is Canelo's future at risk?

"Definitely Canelo's future is in this fight. A loss after losing to Bivol and now losing to Golovkin would be catastrophic for his day today, for his legacy. On the contrary, a solid, resounding victory, because it gives him the reason for the past 10 years," said the WBC president.

Last May 7, Canelo tried his luck, for the second time in his career, in the semi-complete division and was defeated by Russian Dmitry Bivol, who defended his WBA championship; with the contract signed against Golovkin, Canelo could not dispute the rematch and will have to face the Kazakh on September 17 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

"Canelo has everything to lose and everything to gain. For Golovkin it is more comfortable because he is not the one in the spotlight," added the sports leader.

Mauricio Sulaimán sees rancor between Canelo and GGG

What is evident is the hatred that exists between Canelo and Golovkin, as they have shown in the two press conferences they had in Los Angeles and New York, where the face to face was intense, with which he ruled out that it is a strategy of the Mexican to sell more pay-per-views.

"Canelo doesn't play games, he doesn't do that kind of strategy, he has never done it. It is a real grudge that has been seen between the two. It is a natural rivalry that has been going on for many years, after the first fight, which was a draw, that rivalry grew. When the clenbuterol issue came up, Golovkin was very aggressive with Canelo, since that time he has never stopped being so," said Sulaiman in statements reported by Izquierdazo.

The rivalry is real

The WBC president insisted that the rivalry is real, as Canelo has rarely been seen, very calm in the promotion of other fights and now he has even insulted Golovkin.

"There is a real, real pique, they have a desire that has rarely been seen. Canelo is normally very measured, just like Golovkin, now you can see that there is a tremendous pique between the two," Mauricio Sulaiman said.
