Canelo: GGG Fight Will Definitely Happen

share on:

Saul Canelo Alvarez is insisting he will still face Gennady GGG Golovkin and won’t have a problem getting to 160lbs.

Alvarez will fight WBO super-welterweight champion, Liam Smith this weekend after dispatching Amir Khan in six rounds.

The Mexican gave up his middleweight title ahead of his fight with Khan in May which led to accusations of him ducking ‘GGG’.

However, Canelo (47-1-1-KO33), whose sole defeat was to Floyd Mayweather via a points decision, is adamant he wants the fight and says the undefeated knockout specialist should be the one to be worried.

“Any day, any time. When the negotiations are done and the fight is done, I will be ready. They need to worry about it, not me,” said Canelo.

“I’m not worried at all about going to 160lb. I’m a strong fighter, I’m a fighter who can adapt to my surroundings.

“I can’t tell you now what I will be like at 160 as I don’t know yet. We will see in a couple more fights in how I feel and look. We will see what comes.

“I will say this one more time. They need to worry. They need to make something happen.”

Golovkin stopped Kell Brook in five rounds last weekend to claim his 36th straight win and 33rd by stoppage.

“I have always known what he has and what he does not. He had an opponent who moved a little and we saw what we saw,” added Canelo.

“I have never worried about him or others. I just want to create my own history. I have been fighting the best, I am just 26 and have fought in the biggest arenas.

“I have no regrets, I want that fight and it will happen.”
