It’s fight week! And for the last promotional push of Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin, HBO has just released their second and final installment of the 24/7 series focusing on the fight. You can watch the full episode right here on BLH!
In the first episode we saw the HBO production team trace the roots of both fighters back to their home countries. Now in this second installment we’re a little more focused on the training camps for this fight, with Golovkin first reflecting on his last outing against Daniel Jacobs.
Then we switch gears to Canelo’s training camp and interviews where he discusses his expectations for this big event, where he says he expects to win in convincing fashion. We also get a glimpse of both fighters’ leisure activities which features a ping-pong game between Golovkin and trainer Abel Sanchez, and Canelo visiting more horses.
Towards the end we see Abel Sanchez breaking down tape on Canelo and talking to the HBO crew about where he sees chinks in Canelo’s armor, which finally leads to some reflection on Canelo’s past sparring sessions with Golovkin.
