Gomez Claims GGG Is Scared Of Canelo

  • Gennady “GGG” Golovkin fight and California Clásico highlight StubHub Center May calendar

Unified middleweight champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) will defend his titles Saturday night against Vanes "The Nightmare" Martirosyan (36-3-1, 21 KOs) at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Because of a pair of failed drug tests, Alvarez was forced to withdraw from his mega-Cinco de Mayo rematch in Las Vegas with Gennady Golovkin.

However, Golovkin questions if the September fight will happen because Alvarez is not now in a drug testing program. In the meantime, will Golovkin go to 38-0-1 on Saturday.

The fight's promoters billed it as a record-tying 20th defense, but the WBA title that Golovkin won in 2010 was that organization's second-tier belt.

Vanes Martirosyan was not only battered in the wee hours of Sunday morning but he was taught a lesson.

Golovkin's trainer Abel Sanchez is in agreement and believes there are plenty of other fighters who deserve the chance to face him such as World Boxing Organization champion Billy Joe Saunders, Jermall Charlo and Sergey Derevyanchenko among others. The NSAC suspended Alvarez for six months April 18 for failing two performance-enhancing drug tests in February.

It didn't even take Gennady Golovkin five minutes to remind the boxing world he's still the most risky middleweight boxer in the world.

"I think if Canelo stayed in front of Gennady, he would get knocked out cold", Martirosyan said.


Before the fight, he pegged the odds of facing Alvarez in September, when Alvarez's suspension will have ended, at 10 percent.

"It was like being hit by a train", Martirosyan said.

"I was just hungry, training and training, and then that opportunity comes", Martirosyan said. So Martirosyan took the fight of his life on short notice. "In the second round, I came out all business, after I felt him out in the first round".

In the notoriously fractious world of boxing's sanctioning bodies, Golovkin was bound to find trouble after his rematch with Canelo fell through.

After the fact, the 32-year-old Aremenian-American boxer, who had been out of the ring for two years after losing a 154lb world title fight to Erislandy Lara, called Golovkin the hardest puncher he has faced.

"Everybody want second fight, second step".

Although he kept his titles, the fights were too close for comfort for Golovkin.
