Andre Ward: “Is GGG too huge for Alvarez?”

Andre Ward says the real issue driving into the September 16 battle between Saul Canelo Alvarez and Gennady “GGG” Golovkin is whether GGG is essentially too huge for the 5'9" Canelo. That is the issue that Ward feels is a standout amongst the most vital things about the Canelo-Golovkin battle.

It doesn't bode well, however, on the grounds that Canelo is most likely going to be the heavier of the two warriors. Both of them have an indistinguishable reach at 70". The main genuine distinction between them as far as size is Golovkin is a tiny bit taller at 5'10 ½" contrasted with the 5'9" Canelo. That is insufficient of a size preferred standpoint for you to state that Canelo can't win. On the off chance that Canelo will be heavier than Golovkin with an indistinguishable achieve, at that point size will have nothing to do with who wins or loses the battle What will have any kind of effect is punching power, boxing capacity and ring smarts.

The judges can likewise have any kind of effect. Ideally, we don't see the judges demolish the battle like they some of the time do by thinking of crackpot scoring that has neither rhyme nor reason. We saw some insane scoring in Canelo's battles with Floyd Mayweather Jr., Austin Trout and Erislandy Lara. Canelo was given prevail upon Lara and Trout in battles that he most likely ought to have lost. In the Mayweather battle, one judges scored it a draw.

That gives you a sign of what Golovkin is up against in confronting Canelo. He may need to thump Canelo out to ensure he gets the win. I think the judges are presumably the most vital thing about the Canelo-Golovkin battle. The estimate is auxiliary as I would see it, on the grounds that there's no genuine distinction between them in measure other than Canelo being heavier.

"I believe it's an awesome battle," said Ward to ESPN's First Take about the Canelo versus Golovkin battle. "Oscar De La Hoya and Canelo made the best choice. They took as much time as necessary; they enabled the battle to be manufactured. They didn't permit media weight, media examination to drive them to get in there before they needed to. They enabled Canelo to come up in weight a smidgen higher to give his body a chance to get settled at a higher weight and make a couple of paydays en route. Presently it's something individuals are discussing and it's a major battle," said Ward.
