Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin will be meeting on the octagon for the second time. The officials have confirmed that the bout will happen in the future. Both of the sides held a press conference with a split-site concept. That event is the only time they meet until their fight week.
It seems that both parties have a lot of accumulated grudges so that they won’t meet in person at the press conference. Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin will be meeting for the September rematch.
Instead of meeting each other at the press conference, they hold a split-site conference in different places. The officials streamed the respective conference from Guadalajara, Mexico and Big Bear, California via Facebook. Some fellows from the Fight Hub TV make it happen for viewers to catch up with the important moment from their favorite screen.
As mentioned, the split conference is the only time that the two interact. That means they won’t meet each other until the fight week. And there will be no pressers on tour, or there won’t be any sit down face off as we usually witness. Not to mention that the viewers will be away from the trash talking. There will be the only limited interaction that we can expect from the split press.
It is not a new thing anymore that both fighters have lost respect for each other. This time is personal for both fighters. Experts agreed that they have disrespected for everything. The upcoming fight will be private for both of them.
To be exact, Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin will meet on September 15, 2018. It is going to be a long-awaited rematch that will attract millions of viewers around the world. The bot will happen at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. If you are planning to go to Las Vegas this September, you won’t want to miss to watch your favorite fighter on the Octagon.
As we remember in the first fight, the result was a split draw. That was an uncertain outcome because each side believed that they won. There was a single judge’s scorecard that was so wrong after the match finished.
At that time, Adalaide Byrd scored the match 118-110 that favors Alvarez. This result made such speculations amongst the fans and analysts. GGG was the favorable one, not Canelo. The draw has been a hot discussion amongst the diehard fans of the fighting sports.
The controversy is something that the officials can’t leave behind. Because of it, the officials suggested the rematch. It was supposed to happen on May 5, 2018. But that never happened because of Canelo’s suspension. That’s why the officials postponed the rematch and rescheduled the date of the bout. Canelo was not active for six months because of the suspension. He did not pass the drug test. That means he is banned from fighting until August.
Once the suspension is over, he is able to get back into the ring. That’s sensible because he trained while on the suspension period. He will finally make an appearance into the ring against GGG in the rematch.
There’s been a lot of discussions about the upcoming fight involving the two fighters. And there’s also been the talk ahead of the vast rematch bout. In these situations, you will be around the speculations and theories from the fans and experts. Because the two fighters met before, the talking can be more personal than before. Each plane has known each other quite well. That’s why it is normal to see them talking to each other personally.
For instance, Golovkin stated that Canelo was not a true warrior. That statement implied that he made more effort than fighting last time out. In fact, he went extra miles by saying that his contender was not like a true champion or a Mexican fighter regarding the style in the ring.
Canelo did not want to be quiet about the Golovkin suggestion. Canelo responded to the message. Canelo got the words back with a chilling warning. He said that no doubt the fight would be a better fight. Canelo said that the desire to tear Golovkin’s head off was so big, and it would be much better. That is apparently a chilling message from the respective fighter like Alvarez, who’s looking forward to meeting with GGG to prove his point.
