The rematch which will take place at the T-Mobile Arena on September 15th will be a are match of the 2017 Mega Fight that ended with a controversial split draw. De La Hoya has been pleased, as he was able to complete negotiations for the fight.
“It was quite difficult (to close the fight), the negotiations were really tough, it took time to please the two groups, the two fighters, but it was achieved and we are delighted that the fight will take place,” said De La Hoya to ESPN Deportes.
“I expect a tough fight for both. The fact that Canelo has that anger towards Golovkin, this fight is very personal for both, but the fact that GGG has been talking too much about Canelo, for me Canelo is going to be very motivated, he’s going to train harder than ever. For me this fight will be tough, but obviously we are with Canelo 100 percent.”
The Golden Boy Boss believes that the split draw from the first fight calls for a knockout in the rematch and that that will finally crown him the king of Boxing.
“In September both fighters have to go for a knockout, it’s that easy, because nobody wants to see a decision. Obviously the controversy that was in the first fight with the draw, it left a bad taste for people. And now both of them have to knock each other out, because it’s the only way that the public is going to be satisfied. And if Canelo wins by knockout, he’s going to be the king of boxing.. he’s going to be the most beloved figure in the world, the hero, it’s quite important and I have a good feeling that Canelo will knock him out,” De La Hoya said.
