Golovkin accuses bitter rival Canelo of ‘arrogance’ ahead of trilogy fight

Gennady Golovkin blamed Canelo Alvarez for egotism and cautioned him that "the appointed authorities are not faithful". The two conflict for the third and perhaps last time on Saturday night. The past two battles finished in a profoundly challenged draw and a focuses triumph for the 32-year-old Alvarez.

The Kazakh reported that he knows his adversary's shortcomings quite well. As per the 40-year-old fighter, one of them is his egotism.

"What are his shortcomings? His pomposity. What's more, pomposity is rebuffed," Golovkin declared in a meeting with the New York Daily News. "The appointed authorities will presently not be faithful to Canelo. They won't include the focuses in support of himself," the Kazakh added.

According to Golovkin, the Mexican's first loss since 2013 will weigh on him. Alvarez lost to Dmitry Bivol in his last match.

"In the last match, the knockout was not needed to beat him. This is encouraging. Also the fact that the judges won't be loyal to Canelo. They don't feel the strain of his image. Canelo has very bad habits, and when a person has such habits it prevents him from living a normal life. It's bothering him and it's showing right now," Golovkin concluded.
