The look on Gennady Golovkin’s face when Michael Buffer finished reading the scorecards in last September’s fight with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez was priceless. You could see he wasn’t surprised. He felt robbed of a career-defining victory.
Golovkin comes out with a good pace, but for one reason or another, he came out slow to begin the first fight, as it took him two rounds to relax and get into a groove. Perhaps nerves kicked in and rightfully so if they did. The 2004 Olympic silver medalist had never been in such a pressure cooker until that point. Ultimately, those two rounds ended up costing him in the eyes of the judges.
This time around, GGG has to come out roaring and set the tone from the outset. Establish his dominance early and make Alvarez feel urgency, not vice-versa. He has the cardio advantage, so Golovkin can afford to expend more energy in the beginning stages. If he doesn’t do that, Alvarez will keep his foot on the gas pedal and make it a long night at the office, which would force Golovkin into making a mistake that could be disastrous.
