Arum is not the primary to criticize Canelo’s love of golf, however joins Oscar de la hoya
“Golf is a really addictive sport, very lovely. I like to play golf. It can be an vital a part of my life. I can deal with lots of stress and It’s one thing that relaxes me, that distracts me”, Canelo said in May, introduce your tournament ‘No wave, no life’, a variant of the expression ‘No Boxing, No Life’ (Without boxing there is no life) which made the Mexican boxer famous.
Bob Arum sees Jermall Charlo GGG . defeat
Arum said that Golovkin is no longer the fighter he used to be. “GGG has a lot of boxing skills. I think he is still an elite fighter, but the 40 years, especially for a middleweight boxer, that’s a big number. Have your skills been eroded? I think the answer is yes.”
Among the attainable rivals for the Kazakhs are: Jermall Charlo and Golovkin’s compatriot, Aidos Yerbossynuly.
“I think Charlo would win that fight. I don’t think Charlo would be competitive with GGG at his best, but he’s long past that.. I would choose Charlo to win that fight now,” mentioned Arum, who sees a dilemma in Golovkin’s profession due to his age.
“He’s used to making so much money that he…With a ‘normal’ middleweight, who wouldn’t attract such a big purse, he will have a hard time getting into the ring. I would love it (the fight with Yerbossynuly), but I don’t think it will happen. I believe that Yerbossynuly is a great fighter. He said it objectively, I’ve seen him since he came from Kazakhstan, he had a few fights there and then all his fights with us. I don’t see GGG going to the ring with him because the money won’t meet GGG’s standard.”
