Last night was arguably one of the most intense face offs at a weigh-in in recent boxing memory with Canelo rushing Golovkin after he weighed in.
He was met with a cold, steely stare however. No reaction at all really.
It’s clear that Golovkin is focused beyond words for this bout.
Fans saw this and have been remarking the same way for the most part:
GGG, cool and composed. Canelo, looks riled. Team GGG#Beat the Cheat!!!

GGG didn’t move an inch and I think if anything Canelo attempting to intimidate and failing miserably works for GGG. Can’t wait and I’m supporting Golovkin

Canelo & team losing their cool. Hope for a good fight, but i’m rooting for a definitive stoppage win by GGG

Camelo trying everything to gain a psychological advantage shows his vulnerability 😂🥊

GGG ice cold killer. Canelo looks like he wants no part of it

GGG cool as a cucumber. Canelo like a coiled spring, he’s in for a long night

have to say… @canelo and his Motley crew look rattled… including @OscarDeLaHoya … can’t wait for @GGGBoxing to put things right tomorrow for the sake of boxing…. Time to land the GingerSnaps punch and put the Mexican to sleep! @TomLoeffler1 #CaneloGGG2
