Canelo: Me or Golovkin Could Win by Knockout, Get Knocked Down

Canelo Alvarez figures Gennady Golovkin regards his energy. 

The Mexican genius presumes that similar to him, Golovkin sees both of them could win their profoundly expected middleweight title battle by knockout September 16 in Las Vegas. Golovkin has thumped out 89 percent of his expert rivals and has not been thumped down amid any of his 37 battles. 

Alvarez's knockout proportion is perceptibly lower (67 percent), yet he, as well, has recorded various knockouts against title bore rivals as of late. Most strikingly, the 27-year-old Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) scored feature reel knockouts of James Kirkland in May 2015 and Amir Khan in May 2016. 

The previous WBC middleweight champion is sure he can turn into the primary warrior to thump out Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) also. 

"I don't believe they're belittling my energy," Alvarez said through an interpreter as a feature of a telephone call Tuesday. "I think the fans know and the media know we both have alluring styles and we're both going to battle a battle where anyone can win by knockout. We both have the ability to win by knockout. However, that is the thing that makes for an incredible battle and I imagine that is the thing that makes this an alluring battle for the fans." 

Alvarez understands the 35-year-old Golovkin hasn't been down as an ace. The versatile Alvarez hasn't been down amid a master battle, either, however that could change immediately, Alvarez stated when they square off one month from now in an HBO Pay-Per-View headliner at T-Mobile Arena. 

"Anything can occur in boxing," Alvarez said. "Anything can occur at any minute, whenever when the two contenders can punch when they both have punching power. You can have a contender who won't be a major puncher, but rather in the event that he interfaces with that impeccable punch, at the correct spot, he can thump down anyone. So yes, obviously it can happen. It can happen due to the measure of punching power the two warriors have."
