On Sunday, August 26, Golovkin held an open workout at Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, where fans and the media could get an up-close view of GGG as he trains. It was also a chance to see what fans can expect for the fight.
Years ago, GGG believed he was the best fighter and that he could knock out everybody that comes into the ring with him. These days, he’s not sure whether he’s number 2 or number 3 behind Floyd Mayweather. Right now, however, he’s focused on being in the ring with Canelo.
Going into this fight, GGG has won all 37 of his previous fights, including 32 by knockout.
Meanwhile, for Canelo, he found himself in hot water for his failed drug tests that postponed his rematch with GGG. Now that the fight is on, he said there was no attempt to gain an unfair advantage over Golovkin for the sequel. He even admitted that GGG’s accusations for his intentional cheating got under his skin. He’s been channeling that energy into his training, hence his extreme intensity and speed during the workout.
Cannel hopes to make a statement over GGG and will be looking for the opportunity to end the fight as soon as possible. It remains to be seen how he’ll do that and be able to gain the advantage.
Last year, Golovkin teamed up with The Chivas Fight Club, an initiative launched to inspire the fighting spirit within individuals all across the country. It’s much like the spirit of GGG, who continues to #FightForIt as he gears up to face Canelo again next month on September 15.
