In the latest installment of HBO’s official blog for Canelo-Golovkin 2, Canelo Alvarez talks about what this rematch means for his legacy in the sport. Check it out...

How important is this fight for your legacy?

“I’m very happy with my career. I’m very proud of what I have done in these roughly 13 years in the sport. I think I’m creating a legacy that is leaving me very satisfied. Obviously, I still have many years in the sport, but at this rate I am satisfied with what I have done.

“My objectives in the sport of boxing is to take advantage of my opportunities and to make history. I’m going to keep making the best fights. A career in boxing is short, and I want to do it well. I’m going to do my best and take advantage 100% in this sport to leave a great legacy, which is what I hope for.

“It’s definitely more personal now. I really don’t like him [Golovkin]. It’s personal, and I take it that way. It will make me train harder and give it the extra push to knock him out on September 15.”
