Canelo Alvarez: Golovkin is nothing special

Canelo Alvarez gives his take on Gennady Golovkin's performance against Kell Brook.

Canelo Alvarez catches up with FightHub ahead of tomorrow's title fight against Liam Smith. Check out what he had to say!

Canelo on how his weight cut has been going given his strict diet heading into this fight:

"I feel really good, the work's been done properly, and for those who doubt me, you'll see tomorrow. Tomorrow's the weigh-in, and I'll prove it to everybody."

On if he wants to prove that he can put on a better performance than Gennady Golovkin in this fight:

"He's the one that needs to worry about how he looks and compare himself to me. I don't have to worry about that, and I don't worry about that. He needs to worry about it."

On his impression of Golovkin's performance against Kell Brook:

"I didn't see anything special. Obviously if you have a fighter that's in front of him, he's looked how he's looked. But now he had a fighter that moved a little, gave him a little trouble, got some combinations in -- you saw it, he didn't look special. We already know what he has and what he can bring."
