Canelo Alvarez feels that he and old rival Gennadiy Golovkin have seen their careers move in vastly different directions since their last meeting in 2018.

Many still hope Canelo and Golovkin will lock horns for a third time following their controversial draw in 2017 and close points win for the Mexican a year later.

But whilst Golovkin has remained at 160lbs to reclaim the IBF crown, Canelo has seen his star rise further in winning world title belts at 168lbs and 175lbs, as well as receiving widespread acclaim as boxing’s pound-for-pound No.1.

Canelo would still face Golovkin in a trilogy bout, but feels the Kazakh’s career has stalled somewhat since their rematch.

“I am ready for everything,” Canelo told ESPN Deportes. “I am ready to make the best fights. You [writers] hang on to that [third Golovkin fight]. I’m doing more important things than him. Where is he? What has he done since he fought me? Nothing.

“I am doing other important things in my career. Beating champions, undefeated fighters.”
