Mikey Garcia gives his prediction for Alvarez vs Golovkin
The ex-lightweight champion of the world Maika Garcia gave his prediction for the fight between the WBA and IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (42-1-1, 37 KOs) and the absolute champion in the second middleweight Saul Alvarez (57-2-2, 39 KO). His words are quoted by Boxing24/7:
"I think it's a good fight, but I think Canelo will win it. They know each other very well. The weight is not too important because they have already fought each other twice.
Canelo fought in the top weight category, but by nature he is not a big dude. He became much smaller. It will not play a big role.
I just think that Canelo is at a better age and has a better career than Golovkin. This is a good fight. Golovkin will make every effort to knock him out, but I think Canelo will win.
He will still hold a rematch with Byvol. He will do it. He is not one of those who will forgive this to a small upstart.
He will receive it. The only way to do this is a rematch. This is boxing. It is not about fighting with one's compatriots. But when appropriate circumstances arise, you must do it," he said.
