Marquez: Canelo has the perfect style to beat Golovkin

Juan Manuel Marquez talks about retirement and gives his assessment of Canelo-Golovkin.

In this video interview with FightHub, Juan Manuel Marquez breaks out his best English to talk about his decision to retire as well as give his thoughts on next month’s big fight between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin.

Marquez on how it feels to have officially retired:

“Well I retired 15-days ago, right now I feel sad. I feel sad but, uh, I need to retire because the body tell me something. I hurt my right knee, I hurt my left shoulder — I need to retire because I have 32 years of career.”

On what he thinks his best win was in a Hall of Fame worthy career:

“I think the most important fight for me was the four fight with Manny Pacquiao because Pacquiao was the best pound-for-pound fighter and I fought with him and, uh, maybe that — the four fights with Pacquaio.”

On how he breaks down the Canelo-Golovkin fight:

“I think the fight will be a great fight. Canelo has the perfect style to won the fight, but I think Gennady Golovkin is a dangerous fighter. He has power, he has, uh, his strength, and I think it will be a great fight but I think Canelo will win the fight.

On how he thinks Canelo will win:

“By decision, I think. By decision because Golovkin is a stronger fighter pero I think Canelo has the power, has the speed, he use the counter puncher. I think Canelo will win by decision.”
