UNIFIED middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin has hinted at the possibility of retiring from boxing after his September 16 meeting with Canelo Alvarez in Las Vegas. "But this is boxing, not soccer, it's not a game, this is a fight and every fight is very hard", he said earlier this week.
GGG is one of the more powerful punchers we have ever seen, however, Canelo is maybe equally as powerful. But he's smart enough to know that, against someone like Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, he'll have the battle scars to show what he had to go through to get there.
In Golovkin, he'll meet a fighter in pursuit of his 19th consecutive middleweight title fight victory, two short of Bernard Hopkins' record.
