De La Hoya: I Think Canelo Beats Golovkin Even Easier This Time

Oscar De La Hoya envisions more greatness for the superstar he previously promoted for a decade.

The Hall of Fame former six-division champion believes Saul Alvarez will run the tables in his 2022 campaign, which could include a third fight with Gennadiy Golovkin. The two are on course to meet September 17, provided they both win their upcoming fights.

“I think Canelo knocks out Triple G in the third fight,” De La Hoya told “Look, I promoted both fights (in 2017 and 2018). I think Triple G has lost a step or two since their [September 2018] rematch. That will be the difference when they meet again. I think Canelo beats him even easier this time and knocks him out.”

Four wins have followed for Alvarez, including his becoming the first Mexican fighter in history to claim undisputed championship status in the three- or four-belt era.

Next up for the 31-year-old Alvarez is a challenge of WBA light heavyweight titlist Dmitry Bivol (19-0, 11KOs) on May 7 at T-Mobile Arena.

Wedged in between was a brutal twelve-round slugfest with Sergiy Derevyanchenko, which Golovkin won by unanimous decision though showing significant wear and tear in the process.

“Look, Triple G is up there in age,” noted De La Hoya. “He’s up there in age, he’s been in wars. He’s not a young 40-year-old. He’s a true 40-year-old fighter who will show his age in that third fight with Canelo.”
