Teddy Atlas, trainer of the Ukrainian boxer Oleksandr gvozdik, shared his thoughts about the feasibility of a third fight between the Mexican Saulem Alvarez and Kazakhstan Gennady Golovkin.
“I don’t know if I can arouse the interest of a third fight with Alvarez Golovkin. If you are not noticed, Golovkin, frankly, lost his last fight, where he met with Ukrainian Sergey Derevyanchenko.
Golovkin has shown that he has the heart of a warrior, but he was not in order. What it was: a disease, an accident, an anomaly, or the current state? Golovkin old, left a part of yourself in the ring, including two fights with Canelo.
At the end of the second fight with Alvarez, Golovkin looked exhausted. I think he won both fights, but it was in the past. We are talking about current situation, about their current situation.
I think that the fights against Canelo Golovkin took a lot of effort. And 400 Amateur fights, too, are not without a trace. It is normal for the age of Gennady,” said Atlas.
We will remind, in the night of 5 to 6 October Golovkin defeated Derevyanchenko rather controversial decision in the fight for the title of world champion IBF and IBO Middleweight champion.
