HBO reporter Harold Lederman says he sees age beginning to appear in Gennady "GGG" Golovkin since his last battle against Danny Jacobs, and he doesn't know whether he can beat Saul "Canelo" Alvarez on September 16. Lederman says the 35-year-old Triple G still should be seen as the most loved to crush Canelo Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) essentially by being the greater, more grounded and more experienced warrior of the two.
Never the less, Lederman thinks the 27-year-old Canelo is topping and getting Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) at correct the correct minute for their battle on September 16 on HBO pay-per-see from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The size contrast between the two warriors appears to be more than what is appeared on paper. Canelo is recorded as 5'9" contrasted with the Golovkin's 5'10 ½". Be that as it may, the two appear to be significantly unique in estimate when they remain beside each other. Canelo resembles a lesser middleweight going to battle a genuine middleweight. Jacobs is to a greater degree a super middleweight than a middleweight. Golovkin's size makes him a genuine middleweight. Canelo has going to need to manage that size and power advantage by one means or another. This isn't a weight depleted Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. that Golden Boy Promotions has dragged into the ring for Canelo to get a simple win against.
"It will be an incredible battle. I don't have a clue about who will win," said Harold Lederman to the boxing media about the GGG versus Canelo battle. "It will be electrifying. Triple G is the favorite. He's the greater person, and he has more understanding. His energy; he must be the top pick. In the Danny Jacobs battle, Gennady looked a smidgen more seasoned. I think age is beginning to get up to speed to him. You saw it. He had issues with Danny Jacobs. The Gennady Golovkin we've been seeing on HBO the sum total of what along has been out and out threatening. You recollect the David Lemieux battle, the Gabriel Rosado knockout. He was wrecking. Be that as it may, at that point unexpectedly he comes in the ring with Danny Jacobs and he's having issues. I surmise that is age," said Lederman.
I don't believe it's age that is in charge of Golovkin not looking great against Jacobs and Kell Brook. It's to a greater extent an instance of Golovkin battling folks with great hand speed, versatility and boxing aptitudes. Creek and Jacobs would have constantly given Golovkin a few issues regardless of what point in his profession that he battled them. Without a doubt, I think Golovkin would have battled Jacobs somewhat unique on the off chance that he battled him before the Brook battle as opposed to after. I got the feeling that the feedback that Golovkin got after his prevail upon Brook relating to his protective aptitudes, I think it drove Golovkin to battle a more cautious battle.
Regardless of the possibility that Canelo wins, there presumably won't be a rematch in the event that he needs to douse up a lot of hard head shots from Triple G. Canelo's profession may be abbreviated on the off chance that he takes excessively numerous head shots. In any case, in a perfect world, the boxing open will see 3 battles amongst Canelo and Golovkin. It would absolutely make Canelo a considerable measure of cash on the off chance that he battled Golovkin 3 times. At the present time, there's nobody else in boxing for Canelo to profit against. Floyd Mayweather Jr. has made it clear that he's not going to be returning to go up against anybody from the boxing scene. On the off chance that Canelo will battle an additional 10 years or so before he's over-the-slope and prepared for retirement, at that point it's to his greatest advantage to battle Golovkin no less than 3 times. All things considered, 3 battles won't occur if Canelo gets thumped out or if he's compelled to take discipline.
"Gennady Golovkin was threatening when he won those battles on HBO," said Lederman in regards to Triple G's wins over David Lemieux and Gabriel Rosado. "When he battled Danny Jacobs, he didn't look threatening. He resembled his age is beginning to make up for lost time to him. I don't think so," Lederman said when inquired as to whether Jacobs' phenomenal boxing aptitudes were what made Golovkin look not as much as threatening. "My feeling is Gennady Golovkin's age is truly beginning to get up to speed to him, and he's not the same threatening person that thumped out every one of those different folks on HBO. I believe he's gone down a smidgen, and Canelo is coming up a tad bit," said Lederman.
On the off chance that you contrast Golovkin's execution against David Lemieux with what he looked like in beating Jacobs, it was a similar warrior. Golovkin punched Lemieux a large portion of the battle. The distinction was that Lemieux didn't have the a safe distance and portability to give Golovkin issues the way that the 6'0" Jacobs did. Golovkin was shorter and a great deal lighter looking than Jacobs. The weight contrast between the two appeared to be considerable. Jacobs put on a great deal of weight after he rehydrated for the battle, and it didn't back him off. Golovkin's punch still shielded Jacobs from doing what he needed to do in the battle.
