Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez is looking sharp ahead of his rematch versus Gennady Golovkin.
The Mexican middleweight showed off his blistering hand speed, and he appears to be in frightening form prior to Saturday night’s blockbuster fight.
The 28-year-old is in ridiculous physique leading up to his highly-anticipated rematch against ‘GGG’.
He uploaded a video of himself working out in his California base. His grueling training camp is nearly over and he’s in peak physical condition
‘Canelo’ will be seeking to snatch Golovkin’s WBA (super) and WBC world titles away from him when they meet in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The two feared middleweights were set to collide in May following their split draw in 2017, but the bout was postponed due to ‘Canelo’ failing a pre-fight drug test.
They’ll meet in a few days to determine middleweight supremacy.
Here’s hoping the fight stays away from the judges score cards following their controversial first fight. Horrendous judging marred the middleweight title bout.
Also, since their first fight, ‘Canelo’ and Golovkin have developed genuine bad blood.
“Canelo and I, we have different mentalities,” the Kazakh destroyer toldTelegraph.“What he’s done has disrespected the sport, the public and his supporters. Before, I respected him. And I respect people who respect boxing.”
Golovkin added: “These guys don’t respect the boxing, only business. He’s a smart guy. But he lost respect because he used drugs.
“He did a lot of damage to boxing. For somebody like him to make such a bad mistake and then continue to work with the same people, with the same team who brought him to this situation, it shows he doesn’t recognise certain things.”
Saturday can’t come soon enough.
‘Canelo’ or ‘GGG’ – who’s everyone backing?
