Gennady Golovkin: My fight vs. Canelo Alvarez will be a big gift to boxing
Sunday September 17th, 2017

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin fought to a draw in their middleweight title fight on Saturday in T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

After the fight, both fighters came out and said they would want to fight a rematch, and Oscar De La Hoya said Alvarez will exercise his rematch clause.

Golovkin said he would like for the rematch to be a "true Mexican style" fight with both fighters standing in the ring throwing at each other. He said he felt Alvarez was moving too much and didn't allow the fight to be the "show" that GGG thought it should have been.

Canelo said in a rematch he would approach the fight the same way because he felt he won at least seven rounds in the fight. On one scorecard, Alvarez won 118-110, while the other two had it much closer, with one going 115-113 for GGG and the other at 114-114.
