Canelo Álvarez’s fear of Golovkin; Was he risking his career?
In previous days it was mentioned that, if it fell in front of Golovkinthe Canelo Alvarez could suffer complications in terms of sponsors and dangerous rivals in the future. This situation is comparable to the words of Mauricio Sulaimán, who showed the fear which has a hypothetical negative result for the Mexican.
The president of the World Boxing Council considers that if Saúl loses to his Kazakh rival, his career could fall in such a regrettable way that it would be very difficult to get back up, considering that the man from Guadalajara is already 32 years old.
“It weighed heavily on Canelo (the defeat with Bivol) and if he loses with Golovkin on September 17, I see it very difficult for his career to resurface to the levels it had (…) He took a very big risk by gaining weight to face an undefeated World Champion, he lost and now everything is at stake against GGG, “he mentioned Sulaimán in talk with Toño de Valdés.
Despite this, Mauricio highlighted the qualities of the Canelo Alvarez both inside and outside the ring, so he is confident that he will have a positive result next September at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas in the United States, a venue he already knows.
