The controversial phrases that ignited the Canelo vs. Golovkin rivalry


The moment of truth is getting closer and closer. Canelo Álvarez and Gennady Golovkin will meet in what will be the closing of what may be one of the most memorable trilogies in boxing history.

The first fight between Álvarez and ‘GGG’ took place on September 16, 2017, however, since that day the rivalry between the two has had a series of phrases that have ignited spirits and have made this become more and more personal .

One of the issues that unleashed everything was the doping accusation of the Mexican boxer, since Canelo assures that it was for Mexican meat, while the Kazakh does not believe in that story.

The phrases of Canelo Álvarez

“It’s definitely personal. I don’t like him. He is personal, and I take it that way” Canelo

“He is a hypocrite. He is not honest, he pretends to be a good person and to be different, but he is not” Canelo

“I think they are Abel’s words. Golovkin doesn’t have enough balls for him to say or think it out of his own mind. Everything he says he says for Abel. I feel annoyed by everything they have said” Canelo

“This will be his last fight. I want to finish his career, I will, for sure. I will knock him out, it is the only way I want to finish the fight” Canelo

“Let them continue crying, they will do it all their lives”

Gennady Golovkin’s quotes

“What I always wanted to do is punish him. I want to have a fight and punish him for all the bad things he and his team have done, to put him in his place” Golovkin

“Many Mexicans love me and nobody loves Canelo in Kazakhstan” Golovkin

“’Canelo’ is cheating. They’re using these drugs and everyone pretends like it’s not happening. And you keep asking me about meat? It has nothing to do with meat” Golovkin

“Maybe it’s their strategy to blame me and call me ‘two-faced’ instead. I know I’m not. We all know that there was a verdict from an official organization, and everything that was said was just the facts.” Golovkin

“I think I won both of our fights. But obviously it suits some people to be wrong. Do I feel bitter about that? Yes. When you see that people can go through fraud like that without consequences, is that really how this sport works?” Golovkin
