The boxing community reacts on Twitter to the substantial news that Golovkin vs Canelo will happen in September.
It’s the fight boxing has been screaming for for two years or so following the disappointment that ultimately was Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao in May 2015.
While Golovkin vs Canelo might not eclipse the crazy financial records that bout generated, it could deliver a lot more in terms of an action-style fight.
Styles make fight at the end of the day and the clashing of Golovkin and Canelo’s styles has all the ingredients for a classic if both men fight to the best of their abilities.
The boxing world has been in full voice following the big announcement of the fight:
The key question from the Canelo-Golovkin staredown: when is Canelo going to bite the bullet and accept he just needs to go up a neck size? pic.twitter.com/lqHXeNBH6J

@PrezAVK Canelo should fight up close, golovkin is murder for not moving his head and taking uppercuts all night.

Man I’m super excited for Canelo Golovkin. I’m also wondering who will be Jermall Charlo’s 1st fight at 160. Would like to see him vs Jacobs
