Mayweather on Canelo vs GGG: Canelo Stops Him

Published On October 9, 2016 | By Niall Doran | Boxing News, Boxing Views and Opinion

Floyd Mayweather has weighed in with his opinion on who he thinks will win when the Canelo vs GGG fight eventually gets made next year.

There are continued talks at the moment to try to get fight made between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez for next September.

Discussions have proved difficult thus far, but it is thought that the fight is being aimed at for next September (2017) between both teams.

This past weekend when speaking to Elie Seckbach and other journalists in an open media scrum, Floyd Mayweather gave his take on what the outcome of the fight will be.

Mayweather on Canelo vs GGG:

“Canelo beats Triple G easy, ya he’ll beat him. He stops him.”

This is likely to cause a stir among passionate fans of Gennady Golovkin who is considered by many to be the best middleweight in the world today bar none.

Golovkin last fought in September when he stopped IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook inside the distance at the O2 Arena in London.

Canelo last competed also last month and likewise recorded a stoppage victory when he beat another Englishman Liam Smith in Texas.

Floyd Mayweather has been doing the rounds in the media this weekend extensively and also spoke on how he thinks UFC president Dana White lives better than his UFC fighters here.

Mayweather has consistently said he will not box again as an active fighter but speculation still continues to exist that he will have one last fight in 2017 himself as he bids to reach the 50-0 mark as a professional.

He has been notably more active as a promoter this year via his Mayweather Promotions company that he started, being linked with signing new talent such as Jessie Vargas and also recent US Olympian Shakur Stevenson who won the silver medal at the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
