Two weeks out from his big showdown against Danny Jacobs, WBA/WBC/IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin appeared on ESPN’s First Take on rival Canelo Alvarez.
With Floyd Mayweather’s retirement, Canelo is now the sport’s biggest pay-per-view attraction. But while Golovkin concedes he would meet any Mayweather demand due to the latter’s Pound 4 Pound track record, he called Canelo “nothing” and a “selfish” fighter. The ill will stems from last year May when Canelo vacated the WBC middleweight over negotiating with Golovkin, who was the mandatory challenger and subsequently awarded the belt.
Golovkin also took a moment to address if he’d move to 168 or 175 to face Andre Ward. Do you agree with GGG’s comments?
