Canelo Alvarez throws more shade at GGG

ARLINGTON, Texas – Canelo Alvarez was widely mocked for calling Gennady Golovkin into the ring following his devastating knockout of Amir Khan and saying the now infamous phrase, “Like we say in Mexico, we don’t (expletive) around.” He then proceeded to vacate his middleweight title and not fight Golovkin

Asked about those comments on Thursday on the threshold of another fight on Saturday against Liam Smith at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, a relaxed Alvarez said he had no remorse or shame uttering those now famous words.

“No, I have no regrets whatsoever,” Alvarez said through translator/Golden Boy matchmaker Robert Diaz before Thursday’s final press conference. “There’s no reason to. I said it because I want that fight and that’s the fight for the fans that they want. And it will happen.”

Golden Boy CEO Oscar De La Hoya has stated there is a verbal agreement to face Golovkin this time next year. However, Alvarez didn’t really hew to that timetable when discussing when he wants to face Golovkin. “Any day, anytime,” he said. “When the negotiation is done I’ll be ready. The ones that need to worry about and be preoccupied with it are them. Not me.”

Canelo, 26, seemed encouraged by what he saw of Golovkin last Saturday against Kell Brook. Before Golovkin chopped Brook down and stopped him in the fifth round, Golovkin absorbed some clean shots.

“Look, I’ve always known what he has and what he doesn’t have,” Alvarez said on Thursday. “The opponents that they’ve had in the past — we haven’t seen anything different. But now he had an opponent that moved a little, that threw combinations. Even though he was in a smaller weight class, we saw what we saw. And at the same time, I’ve never worried about him or others. I’m worried about me, making my history and my career.”

Alvarez didn’t seem too concerned with trying to outdo Golovkin’s performance in his fight with Smith on Saturday on HBO PPV for Smith’s junior middleweight title. “I’m going to say it one more time — they need to worry,” Alvarez said. “They need to try to make something happen, not me.”

    Just SHUT THE FUCK UP. Every word out of your mouth makes you look more and more like a little boy. Yeah, you know what Golovkin has, he used you as a punching bag 5 years ago and has only gotten better since while you are still trying to grow up. If anyone needs to worry it’s your negotiating team over how they are going to justify you being the ‘A side’ of a fight against the most destructive force in boxing today who will most likely hold every belt available in the MW division by the time you do try to get a fight. A boy with no titles against the UNDISPUTED, UNIFIED MIDDLEWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLD. And Oscar will say YOU deserve to get 90% of the purse. Good fucking luck with that.

    • D. Gambino

      Damn Rob! You crazy for this post! 🙂

      • Robert Archambault

        I’m just so tired of this weak kneed little boy trying to act tough and his gang following along. Nothing could happen in this sport that I would like to see more than to see someone, ANYONE, beat him to a pulp. I don’t even want it to be GGG, I want someone like Smith to do it. Or Stevens or Lemieux… ANY ONE! This punk does not deserve to get a title shot against Golovkin.
        I think I will watch the Pacman – ODLH fight tonight to put a smile on my face. Seeing Oscar getting his ass handed to him is almost as good.

        • Abraham E. Hernández

          Canelo wants this fight. His promoters won’t let him have it. All he has to do is shut the F up until he is “ready” because it is getting annoying and his comments won’t do anything else than hurt his credibility.

          • Robert Archambault

            BULLSHIT. The fighter is the boss, the manager and promoter work for HIM. If Caneyellow wanted this fight, we would have had this fight. If he is allowing his decision to be influenced by Oscar and the rest of GBP, then he is not taking charge of his own career and deserves all the derision that is being aimed at him. It is time he stands up and acts like a MAN instead of a boy.

          • Abraham E. Hernández

            I would agree with you 98% of the time. However, Canelo is the GBP’s cashcow. It’s not as easy. He is NOT taking charge of his own careier, I’ll give you that. But he is not an up and commer to break up with his management whenever he wishes. I agree with you, I hate how he is not making the best fights posssible; but it’s not all up to him. I want him to fight GGG but we all know he won’t do it in at least a year. Does not make me proud as a mexican myself.

          • Robert Archambault

            Are you buying the PPV on Saturday? If so, you are part of the reason the GGG fight is not happening and not going to happen.

          • Dan M

            Sorry to enter this debate, but that is spot on. If everyone stopped buying their PPVs against average opponents and demanded they fight each other before we parted with our hard earned cash, it would happen. The consumers have all the power, but we’re all so easily manipulated by advertising and hype.

            If we keep buying these rubbish PPVs, it will probably not happen until at least one of them (but probably both) is old, worn out and well past their prime. And why should they? If they have a guaranteed income and average boxers lining up to fight them, why not take the easier route?

          • TexasGentleman

            How so Robert? Care to explain.

          • Robert Archambault

            Anyone who pays the asking price for this fight is a damn fool. There is no reason for this to be PPV and by buying it, all you do is delay the quality fights such as a fight with GGG from happening. Why should fighters take a risk of losing when they make millions for a walk in the park? Alvarez will continue to fight uncompetitive opponents as long as people will continue to pay for them. It is the Mayweather effect.

          • TexasGentleman

            Robert why are people damn fools for spending their money on what they want to spend it on? Also how do you know this fight won’t be competitive? Just because Cinnamon has a bigger name doesn’t mean he’s the better fighter. Cinnamon is not unbeatable,a pound for pound fighter or the face of boxing in my opinion. Liam Smith might whoop his ass on Saturday.

          • Robert Archambault

            You go right ahead and pay for it then. I doubt I will even be bothered to watch a pirate stream, although I may watch the Rosado fight. I would walk over to my local watering hole to watch it, but they are not bothering to have it on as there is more demand for a MMA card on the same night.

          • Abraham E. Hernández

            Never been a fan of his. I’ll watch it for free on Box Azteca.

          • bradman

            I think both Canyellow and Golden Girl are equally at blame in this whole fiasco. It’s a shame Oscar the Businessman doesn’t have the sack he had when he was Oscar the Fighter.

          • Arnold Cantu

            One word-Ward.

          • Alfredo

            Absolutely spot on….”Ward.” Abel Sanchez is doing the same thing as Oscar is, assessing the risk-reward equation. Golovkin himself has been inconsistent in his comments. The discussions are wonderful though.

          • Arnold Cantu

            Ward-Lara. Been calling this fool. He wants canelo for the money and in his mind lower risk. GGG is like every boxer. He wants to get paid. Canelo offered him more money than his ever made by far. So did Ward offered the same!! So what did GGG do I’ll fight brook 13lbs at his house!! Lmao!

          • Robert Archambault

            OK… you have just proven yourself to be a fool who DKSAB and is not worth my time responding to beyond this one message.

          • TMT NYC-DA REAL GHOSTBUSTERS

            Monsieur Robair! You stop with the insults and give Canelo credit! He is TRYING to be a man! He is growing a beard now…..

          • Robert Archambault

            Just made me spit water all over my screen! LOL

        • Charlie Underbite

          I’m surprised some Mountie hasn’t come and picked you up for something yet. You’re unhinged.

        • philoe bedoe

          Don’t hold back Richard.
          Tell us how,you really feel. Lol……….

    • jorge linares

      So what would make a fair purse split in your eyes

      • Robert Archambault

        50-50. Nothing less. No other fight in boxing today is as lucrative as this one and the money is not there if either fighter is not. There is no one else Alvarez can fight who will bring the same glory and payday while Golovkin has one more title to win and a very important record to destroy. Once those are achieved, he has a new division to conquer at 168. If GGG moves before Alvarez is ‘ready’, Canyellow will have no other opponent to bring him the money he so desperately seems to crave. Who will he fight if GGG moves up? The same crowd of JrMWs who will move up once Golovkin leaves the division? No money there or he would be fighting them now.

        • Ерлан Табылдиев

          Cold truth.

        • Dan M

          There’s always plenty of average fighters around while people keep paying $65 to watch Canelo pummel someone they’ve never heard of.

          • Robert Archambault

            People are stupid.

        • Jesse Johnson

          Ggg won’t move up because their is guys like andre ward waiting on him .

          • Robert Archambault

            Andre Ward stated that he has trouble making 175. Chances of his EVER making 168 again are zero unless he gets a serious disease like cancer or AIDS which causes him to waste away. Ward has not had a fight at 168 since GGG began fighting in the US. He is nothing but a card of desperation to be played by anti GGG idiots who DON’T KNOW SHIT ABOUT BOXING.

          • Arnold Cantu

            Shut up boxing expert! Your boxing knowledge is a joke! I speak truth not dick ride one fighter. Little G’ turned down an official fight with us,” Ward told the reporter. “The reality is for all the talk … the proof is in the pudding. I have an email right now that shows we gave them what they want … 50/50 … and the man — the promoter –turned it down, said maybe 2017.”

            “If the pay-per-view for the Lemieux fight is what we think it should be, Gennady would deserve more than 50% against Ward, considering Ward has barely fought outside of California,” Loeffler said. “So it’s unreasonable to ask us to commit to that right now.”

            Loeffler said his emailed reply to Ward’s camp was that if Ward was still at 168 pounds in early 2017, Golovkin would be pleased to consider the bout at that point.

            When Golovkin first began to fight on HBO, Loeffler said, a list of 20 potential opponents included Ward (28-0, 15 knockouts), with Golovkin trainer Abel Sanchez touting his fighter as willing to fight anyone between 154 and 168 pounds in a reference directed at Ward.

            Lmao. Know boxing before you start Dickriding! Guy think his bigger than Ward and Canelo!! Get the fuck outta here you had to go to the U.K. to fight for money against Brook!! Like how Robert ignores facts. And Brook fight.

          • Jesse Johnson

            When andre first came back he called out ggg and ggg wanted no parts of ward. Guys are moving up to weight class to fight the bigger ggg why don’t ggg do the same if he is as great as you guys say that he is and stop calling out guys like Floyd May weather. I just think he’s not the real thing. Sorry but I don’t see anything special in ggg.

          • Robert Archambault

            Ward NEVER offered a contract to GGG. The ONLY time a fight was ever offered was by HBO and at that time Ward said that he was not ready and his answer was NO. Each and every mention of Golovkin by Ward or his camp since that day was simply to keep Ward’s name in the media by piggybacking on GGG.
            As for Mayweather, Golovkin has NEVER called him out. That all started when a reporter asked him if he would ever be willing to fight Floyd if offered and he said something like ‘Of course! It is my dream fight!’ That is the total extent of that.
            Now go and educate yourself regarding the sport before you continue to make a fool of yourself. You have a fuck of a long way to go.

        • Arnold Cantu

          Money is at 147-154. Only fight he had for money was Andre Ward. But he ran from it and fought Brook!! Lmao.

          • Rick

            Ward a “money fight”, right. Ward relies on his opponets to sell fights. And I guess you’re one of these “Ward was gonna fight him at a catchweight even though he’s on a 2 year vacation guys” huh.

          • Rick

            Ward a “money fight”, right. Ward relies on his opponets to sell fights. And I guess you’re one of these “Ward was gonna fight him at a catchweight even though he’s on a 2 year vacation guys” huh.

        • Arnold Cantu

          It’s funny people are so stupid. Boxing like any sport it is about the money. What does GGG bring to the table. Who has he been fighting?? Lol. Canelo- Trout, Lara, Mayweather, Cotto. GGG-147 Brook and had to go to his house! But couldn’t fight WARD. Lmao. Got offered Ward years ago and canelo!! Didn’t like the money offered in one and didn’t like his chances in another!! The guy wants his weight and 50/50 money. Good luck. So what does that make GGG? Canelo took 10-20 percent purse against Mayweather and dropped weight. Then again after being a ppv attraction. He fought Cotto on Cotto terms and took the smaller purse!! Now Canelo is who boxers want to fight make money. GGG doesn’t want to give up weight or money. Lmao. News flash your the “CHAMPION” who had to go to U.K. to fight a smaller fighter in Brook to MAKE money. Lol. But no one calls him out on that. He talked so much shit about canelo fighting Amir and he does that! THAT’S GGG Dickriding at its finest! GGG has no one to make money off. Canelo does because he took the smaller purse and give up weight to get those fights. To get him where he is now. GGG has to do the same or stfu also. His princess pussy story is I want all the belts!! Lol Well then get them for pennies and stfu. When your ready to step up. Let us know. Also, it’s funny everyone talks about Canelo (25) needs to move up in weight. Lol. GGG (34) has been a MW his whole career. What did Ward do step the fuck up and move up. Does that make GGG is a pussy?? Lol.

          • Robert Archambault

            Wow! Another ‘new’ poster comes along talking the same crap as every other anti GGG troll on the net. To the blocked list with you.

          • Rick

            You seriously don’t know what you’re talking about dude, it’s so ridiculous it’s comical.

    • WillieSmalls

      You sound like you’re in love mate.

    • Ерлан Табылдиев

      Well said, Robert! Kudos.

    • Jesse Johnson

      I don’t know why people think ggg is a greater fighter his good not great Canelo is right ggg has nothing but power that’s it. Canelo beats ggg all day every day. Easy fight for canelo

      • Robert Archambault

        Which is why he is so afraid to take it. Got it. Canyellow gets greased faster than Brook and his career will be over.

        • Arnold Cantu

          Andre Ward!! Talked shit about Amir 8 lbs. Fought Brook 13 lbs. Lmao!

      • oswaldo moreno

        cause those people are right and you are wrong. IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Jesse Johnson

          Canelo is a much better boxer then ggg. Ggg only fights little guys once he fight’s an elite fighter and lose he’s going to retire because he’s a fraud and going to be expose soon.

          • oswaldo moreno

            YEAHH!! Josesito Lopez. Amir Khan,unknown Liam Smith. and if he is better than GGG as you think why he vacated the belt an gave it to a fighter that is a fraud?.he is a CLOWN SHIT saying ” my body not ready for GGG”. mention an ELITE fighter name qho is going to expose him. Jacobs, Saunders, Eubank or maybe “cHOCOLATITO”

          • oswaldo moreno

            I think this guy is the one who can expose GGG!!!!!!!!! any way He is a mandate to face GGG NEXT!!

          • oswaldo moreno

            YEAHH!! Josesito Lopez. Amir Khan,unknown Liam Smith. and if he is better than GGG as you think why he vacated the belt an gave it to a fighter that is a fraud?.he is a CLOWN SHIT saying ” my body not ready for GGG”. mention an ELITE fighter name qho is going to expose him. Jacobs, Saunders, Eubank or maybe “cHOCOLATITO”

  • wayne reid

    No regrets huh? Man I hope Liam Smith gives Canelo a tuffer than expected fight & it goes 12rounds

    • bradman

      No ragrets! I’m hoping Smith pulls the upset and beats Canelo. I’d laugh my ass off for days.

      • wayne reid

        Yea true but it’s hardly likely to happen Canelo is much more experienced neverless Let’s hope they give us a good scrap

        • Dan M

          Don’t pay him too much or he’ll never fight again.

    • tom anthony

      Of course, silly, he has nothing to worry about, That is, not until he has to fight the likes of GGG.

  • Pete

    If Canelo fights Golovkin it’ll be late 2017 – like 12 months from now. I think they’ve both got a bit of work to do first.

    Golovkin has got Jacobs and Saunders to get through. He should have all the belts then.

    Canelo has got Smith and then hopefully he can fight Brook. I’m sure Oscar / GB would be interested to see how Canelo fairs in that one before he faced GGG

    • jorge linares

      I thought you didn’t wanna see Canelo fight anymore WW’s

      • Pete

        I kinda want Canelo v Brook though, but at 154 with a fight day weight check. I think that would be an interesting / entertaining fight.

    • Robert Archambault

      He only needs the belt Saunders has. Jacobs only has a minor title which is basically meaningless. Canyellow never fights Golovkin. GGG gets the last belt, breaks Hopkins’ record and then moves to SMW. ‘Never call Saul’ will just be about ready to have his first fight at MW by then, probably against someone like Sam Soliman.

  • Maroon 01

    Good old Canelo the poster boy for self entitled, little diva boxers that are slowly fucking this sport. Canelo should shut his guts when it comes to Golovkin as he will never accept the fight before 2022. Canelo should concentrate on activities that he is good at such as:

    1) running off to the hairdressers to get his latest blow wave hair cut.
    2) sitting down with his management team and scouring the lower reaches of the boxing rankings to cherry pick his next opponent after Liam Smith.
    3) practicing his scowl face in front of a mirror, his squinty eye look would scare Sonny Liston.

  • shawndhill

    After GGG breaks B-Hop’s record; Maybe he should jump up two weight
    classes to LHW and become a unified champion in that division like
    B-Hop…To break his record GGG needs at least 3 major belts…Problem
    is the Krusher, Superman & the Son Of God are waiting for him. Will
    he dare to be great like Special K or do what B-Hop did or continue to
    chase Canelo?

    • Arnold Cantu

      No! He DUCKED Ward and wants to talk shit about Canelo. He talked shit about Canelo fighting Kahn at 8 lbs difference. Then fought Brook at 13 lbs. difference. Lmao!! GGG keep collect those titles from no bodies for pennies. MW has been dead for a long time. Hint-there is no money there. People tell Canelo you need to move up at 25 but GGG is 34 and always fought at MW. Ward was right there waiting. No I need all the belts first then fights Brook stfu.

      • Agreed, there is very little decent competition at MW at the moment…

        You mean after the three tune up fights Ward said he needed before he fought a credible opponent? Shut the fuck up already douchebag, you’ve already proved how ignorant you are.

  • Gnome

    HAHAHAHAHA!
    Hey ginger, remember how Mayweather led you around a ring for 12 rounds just to hand you that first “L”.
    And how Del La Hoya said he had the play book how to beat Mayweather.
    I think he gave you the wrong play book.
    “How to duck fighters while running your mouth, like Mayweather”
    Trying to hype a fight everyone already wants to see you lose.
    Why?
    1. You are making fighters fight you at a catch weight. 155lb then come in at day of fight 172lb.
    2. Ducking “Mandatory” fights.
    3. Ducking “Elite Fighters”

    Why?
    You are over hyped and have proven less then Genneday. A lot less.
    Gennady is high risk low reward.
    NO! You are afraid to lose your little belts proving you are not elite.

  • Chris Wallace

    Apparently “any day, any time,” actually means, “No sooner than fall 2017 and even then probably never.”

  • Alfredo

    The red-haired marvel will KO Smith in the middle rounds. I wonder what Alvarez will say after the fight regarding Golovkin.

  • Maroon 01

    Choadnelo’s next fight after this weekend is a unique challenge. It’s going to be a fight of intrigue, of hype, anger on Twitter and fighter reps talking shit. It is the most anticipated fight of 2017 I swear, the garter boy said so. Choadnelo vs Rod Salka. I am beside myself with anticipation for this fight. It’s reminiscent of the super fights of the 1980’s. The world awaits!!!!!!
