Boxing News at Five: Canelo says Golovkin “no longer poses any challenge”, White calls De La Hoya a “scumbag, liar and complete moron”

Canelo Alvarez doesn't see why he should take a third fight against Gennady Golovkin, and Dana White takes aim at Oscar De La Hoya
Canelo GGG weigh in

IT could be argued Father Time and Sergiy Derevyanchenko have done a lot of the legwork for Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez when it comes to long-time rival Gennady Golovkin.

After all, for as long as he struggles against other opponents and we are led to believe Golovkin is on the slide, getting older rather than better, there will be space for Alvarez to shrug his shoulders, flex his muscles and go about his business undisturbed, sparing not a thought for a much-needed third fight with the Kazakh.

Now 37, Golovkin has shown a few signs his best days are behind him, but that shouldn’t deflect from the fact he and Alvarez have shared 24 rounds – across a draw and a controversial Alvarez win – with barely a dominant one (either way) amongst them. Nor should it mean a third fight between the pair carries any less appeal than their second encounter 12 months ago.
