Amir Khan, the British boxing superstar gave his views about the fight between two superstars in the Middleweight Division Gennady Golovkin and Saul Canelo Alvarez.
Canelo’s latest win was a very destructive fight against Khan in a knockout, as boxing fans are well aware with that. Khan admitted that he preferred to choose the Mexican as the victor for their fight against “GGG” in Las Vegas on September 16.
Khan said, “You know what, I think Canelo has become so good and so strong as well, he’s been putting in some great performances and has been looking really, really good,”
He believed that GGG on the other hand, who is tired a little in his looks, a little old and fought a lot fighters. People are searching that he is not as good as the people says.
He predicted that Canelo will win the fight.
Khan also suggested that Golovkin vs Canelo will be the fight of the year of the fight between McGregor and Floyd Mayweather.
“I can say that Canelo v Golovkin will be the best fight of the year.” He said. He also finds a hard time comparing it to the Mayweather vs McGregor bout.
He said, “It may not get the biggest promotion or be the biggest fight people are talking about I tell you one thing, it’s going to be a great fight.”
“We’ve got two fighters here who seem to be unbeatable.”
If Mayweather and Canelo will have a rematch, Canelo will beat Mayweather with his new version.
“Mayweather will be knocked out if they will fight again. If this rematch happens, 100%. He was still young and killed himself making the exact weight last time.”
He remarked that he fought Canelo recently, and he’s a very good fighter and that’s why he also said that GGG will be defeated.
“Everything is cool, he said he respected me and thought I was doing great things in boxing and he said he’d love to do some work with me together in the future and work as a team, and I think that’s cool.”
