“I like Canelo’s work but you can’t moan with the decision. Golovkin brought it, he pressured him constantly for twelve rounds, he threw a lot more punches, but it was a close fight. I’m hearing they’re going to do it again next year, so I look forward to the rematch.” DeGale said when analysing the September 16th fight, arguing it was very hard to split the combatants.
DeGale also added his opinion on what will happen if a much talked about rematch happens in May. DeGale paid homage to Golovkin’s remarkable skill set and expects GGG to come away with the win, but he refused to write off Saul “Canelo” Alvarez just yet .”Golovkin is a powerhouse, he’s non stop and he has a fantastic chin. Golovkin is probably technically not the best, but his pressure, chin and fitness gets him through and makes him a special fighter. It’s a really hard fight, but I’m going to go for Golovkin but it wouldn’t surprise me if Canelo nicked it” DeGale concluded.
