JOE GALLAGHER, trainer of Liam Smith, feels that Canelo Alvarez should have elected to face unified middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin on September 17, rather than Smith.

The Liverpudlian defends his WBO world super-welterweight title against the flame-haired Mexican at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

However after flattening Amir Khan in May, Canelo insisted he was ready to fight ‘GGG’ in a blockbuster clash, and Gallagher thinks Alvarez and his team have made a mistake by challenging ‘Beefy’.
