Is Canelo scared to fight Golovkin? | The Tylt
Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez and his promoter, Oscar De La Hoya, have repeatedly turned down a chance to fight WBC interim middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (GGG). In the past, Canelo has insisted that he fights opponents at a catch weight of 155lbs – GGG's trainer says he won't fight '"an ounce under 160."
Canelo's rejection has led some boxing fans to say Canelo is too afraid to fight GGG. To add to the pressure, the WBC is threatening to strip Canelo of his middleweight title if he doesn't agree to a match with GGG.

Canelo would beat GGG. Y'all better stop sleeping on him. GGG hasn't fought anyone yet, it's gonna happen.— Brandon Jacobs (@gatorboyrb) April 27, 2016
If people want to attack me, when I've been saying I think Canelo and GGG will fight next yr, then I'm going back at them, so be warned.— Peter Soprano (@Pacman453323) April 25, 2016
