Oscar De La Hoya was not impressed with Gennady Golovkin’s display in his fight against Kell Brook last Saturday.
Despite the Kazakh boxer getting a win with a fifth round knockout of Brook, De La Hoya believed he was vulnerable. However, he does not think his boxer, Canelo is ready to fight GGG.
De La Hoya believes that Canelo could be moving up to middleweight by the end of this year in his next fight on December 10 on regular HBO. The potential opponents for Canelo’s next fight are from the following fighters: David Lemieux, Curtis Stevens, Billy Joe Saunders, and the winner of the Willie Monroe Jr. vs. Gabriel Rosado fight.
“Golovkin looked vulnerable against the first real fighter who can move. We see things in Golovkin that are going to be exposed when they fight and it’s not going to be pretty,” De La Hoya said to the latimes.com. “That’ll happen when Canelo fills into his body at 160 [pounds] and that’s going to be this year, probably.”
