WBA and WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin has a cold threat for Canelo Alvarez.

“I want to punish him. I want to have a fight and punish him for all the bad things that he and his team have done, so basically to put them … to size him down and to put him and his team in their place,” the Kazakh said. “Nobody knows how it’s going to end, what’s going to be the result. But nobody is going to congratulate anybody, that’s for sure.”

The Mexican has been hard for Golovkin to pin down. The first fight took too long to happen. Golovkin notes, “Not even five years ago, even two years ago, we couldn’t get them to fight us. They were avoiding the fight every way possible. If you remember, they even gave up one of the belts, the WBC belt, they gave it up, to avoid us.”
