Canelo fires back at Golovkin over cheating allegations

Canelo Alvarez took to Instagram yesterday, promising to kick Golovkin’s ass.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

Canelo Alvarez obviously caught wind of Gennady Golovkin’s little outburst yesterday, where he flat out called Canelo a doping cheater, and Canelo didn’t take too kindly to it. So in response Canelo posted a couple of videos on Instagram taunting Golovkin, promising to kick his fucking ass and calling Golovkin a “little bitch.”

Those videos have since been deleted (which is sort of a bitch move in itself) but luckily our friends at Fight Hub TV got the footage beforehand. Watch the clip above.

The promotional build-up between Canelo and Golovkin had always been one of mutual respect between the fighters, with neither having a harsh word to say about the other, but obviously that’s all gone out the window at this point. The animosity between the fighters has been heating up quick, which not only makes for a better promotion, but hopefully also makes for a better fight.

We’ll find out for certain on Cinco De Mayo.
