The Gennady Golovkin 30 day weigh in check ahead of his fight with Canelo Alvarez surely puts to bed certain Conor McGregor claims.
Last week UFC champion turned now pro boxing debut maker Conor McGregor said to the press he thought Gennady Golovkin was ‘badly out of shape’ coming into his fight camp for Canelo Alvarez.
But furthermore, as per WBC (World Boxing Council) rules, the Golovkin 30 day weigh in check ahead of September 16th’s fight took place and the results suggest ‘GGG’ is in excellent condition:

That’s only 10 pounds more than what he needs to be on weigh-in day on September 15th, a month out, so he won’t be killing himself to boil down to make the middleweight limit.
The hard work is still ahead no doubt as Golovkin readies himself for the biggest challenge of his professional career in Mexican Canelo Alvarez.
It’s a world title fight that has so many things going for it and in the words of trainer Abel Sanchez this week on an international media call:
Per media call, GGG trainer A. Sanchez predicting chess match at start & ‘once they see what each is doing they’ll go at it’ #GGGCanelo
