HOUSTON, TX (September 17, 2018) – Former WBA super welterweight world champion Erislandy “The American Dream” Lara (25-3-2, 14 KOs), felt inspired by the state of boxing after watching last Saturday night’s main event between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs) and Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOs) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin fought an amazing fight, it was a true classic.” said Lara. “I want to congratulate both of them for putting together such a tremendous effort to bring the spotlight back on boxing. It would be a great honor to fight either fighter, and I would love to challenge myself against them.”

Erislandy Lara has been training in Houston, Texas for his next fight with trainer Ronnie Shields, as he is working hard in the gym, getting ready for his next fight date.

“I am ready to make a statement and to challenge either fighter at middleweight, whether it is Gennady Golovkin or Canelo Alvarez in a rematch…I am ready!”

It’s not often that a rematch outdoes the original, but on Saturday night from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the 2018 version of Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (50-1-2 34 KO) v. Gennady Golovkin (38-1-1 34 KO) was far superior than its 2017 counterpart.

Arguably, you could credit Canelo’s sustained aggressiveness being the difference in 2018.  In 2017, Alvarez fought well in many rounds but only for a small portion of the round, he did win some rounds in 2017 but the majority were clearly controlled by Golovkin. Standing-8 scored the 2017 fight 115-113 Golovkin.

Alvarez vowed to move forward and be more aggressive in the rematch promising a knockout, he accomplished all but the latter.

Alvarez moved forward from the opening bell and took the fight to Golovkin. Alvarez used some of the best head movement of his career in slipping many of Golovkin’s punches throughout the fight and his ring generalship and footwork were solid.

Although Golovkin’s jab was strong, Alvarez did something that had not been seen in a Golovkin fight with consistency, he backed up the former champion repeatedly onto his backfoot.

Alvarez also attacked the body early and often which visibly affected Golovkin and took a bit a steam out of his punches at times. Both fighters landed power shots throughout the fight and showed equally impenetrable beards. Both fighters were cut, Golovkin a slight cut over the right eye with an abrasion below it, no doubt a product of his adversary’s left hook, and the much more prominent laceration over the new champions left eye, a product of the Golovkin right.

Just when it seemed that Canelo was controlling Golovkin and beginning to brek him down, the former champion rallied late and controlled most of the final third of the fight, visibly stunning the new champion in the tenth.

Although Golovkin had the higher output, it was Canelo’s power and accuracy that most likely won him the swing rounds on the judges score cards.

Standing-8 scored Rounds 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9 for Canelo and Rounds 1, 4, 8, 10, 11, and 12 for Golovkin. Standing-8 final card, a draw, 6 rounds to 6, 114-114.

The official scorecards-

Golovkin GGG Scorecards

This epic battle between two top pound for pound fighters was fought at the highest of levels. In fact, you’d be hard pressed to find one clinch in the fight, there simply was not one, or at least one that I remember. You never saw the referee, he wasn’t needed. Prizefighting at its best, the sweet science on full display.

Said Canelo after the fight, “I’m very excited Viva Mexico” a fitting comment on Mexican Independence Day.

“I looked for a knockout, but he’s a great fighter….He was connecting punches but they were few and far between…If the people want another fight, we’ll do it again”.

 

Golovkin left the ring and did not provide a post fight interview prior to the end of the telecast.

Canelo v. GGG= No Mas As Alvarez Withdraws From Rematch Amid Failed Drug Tests

The May 5 rematch between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin is off. Alvarez withdrew himself amid his much publicized eating of contaminated meat resulting in a failed drug test.

Said Alvarez-

“I am sad and feel powerless that this fight cannot happen now, I have nothing to hide. I want to be transparent in this process. I will do whatever I need to do to demonstrate I have never (deliberately) taken this substance.

I have always operated as a clean fighter. I have always taken clean substances. I respect the sport unconditionally and would never do anything to tarnish something I have worked so hard for and given so many sacrifices for.

“It saddens me that people are accusing me of doing something improper. From here on out, I will take increased precautions to ensure this will never happen again. I am ready for what comes in the future.”

Canelo Alvarez Temporarily Suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission

The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has temporarily suspended Canelo Alvarez for testing positive for Clenbuterol during last month’s voluntary tests. As you may recall, Golden Boy Promotions released the following statement-

The NSAC will meet with Alvarez on April 10 to discuss the matter. 

The timing of the suspension is more than a coincidence as earlier this week, Gennady Golovkin was very vocal about Alvarez. Golovkin made statements that he believes that Alvarez has been a user of PEDS and also that there is evidence that shows needle injection marks on Alvarez. 

Said Golovkin this week-

“Again with the Mexican meat? This is Canelo, this is his team, this is his promotion, Canelo is cheating, using drugs, and everybody is jus trying to pretend it’s not happening, pretty obvious when Canelo’s muscle’s were all enlarged…traces of injections. I can talk about Oscar De La Hoya too, he is also not clean, he’s dirty”

The big rematch between Alvarez and Golovkin scheduled for May 5 is on for now but could be in serious jeopardy pending the outcome of the April 10th meeting.

This is boxing where the all mighty dollar is king so it is doubtful that the millions on the table would go away. That said, the boxing world is watching and awaiting the NSAC decision which could potentially have ripple effects for years.
