Canelo fought Golovkin to a controversial draw in 2017, and then won a close twelve round decision over him in 2018.

 

Canelo Alvarez does not believe that Daniel Jacobs is going to give him a fight as tough as Gennady Golovkin, but believes that by the style of his next opponent, the fight could be more difficult.

The contest takes place on May 4, in a WBC, WBA, IBF middleweight world title unification at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The current odds place Canelo as the favorite over the New Yorker to the tune of 2.5 to 1.

“There are tough fighters and there are difficult fighters. Jacobs has a bit of everything, he’s difficult and tough. Golovkin is a very strong fighter, who is always coming forward and that is complicated in a fight, but they have different styles,” Canelo explained.

“It’s going to be a difficult, complicated fight, more because of the mentality that he has, he has a mentality where anything can come at him and that pleases me, that’s how good fights are made, when there is a strong-minded fighter who can surpass any obstacle. I am happy that he is my opponent in May to give me a good fight – and that is the only thing I want in each of the fights I have.

“He is a very complete fighter, he knows how to handle the ring well, very well from either guard, a fast fighter, strong, tall, he is a very complete fighter, I do not know how he is going to fight me. What I do know is that we will prepare for anything, for any style that he comes with. We will prepare a hundred percent and be ready for that day. We know it will be a difficult night, but we are ready for that, at these levels you have to be ready for any style.”
