• Canelo Alvarez's trainer says the Mexican will knock out Gennadiy Golovkin in the third fight
  • Triple G is scheduled to defend his IBF title in June
  • Canelo earlier said GGG "has nothing to offer"

Not even a slight doubt could contain Eddy Reynoso, who claims Canelo Alvarez will pound Gennadiy Golovkin should a third fight ensue. The Mexican’s trainer appeared to be well secured in his belief that the middleweight superstar will not need the judges’ decision to be hailed as the winner for the second straight time over his Kazakh foe.

Speaking with ESPN Knockout, the 2019 trainer of the year said, "Without a doubt. If this fight happens, Canelo-Golovkin III, no doubt we'll knock him out."

There were reports that the arch-rivals could meet again in September. If the trilogy indeed takes place, Reynoso said that their approach will most likely be as identical with their game plan during the second meeting, except that they will aim for the brutal stoppage for the third fight.

"We'll look to take the fight to him like in the second one, from the start, try to push him back. But this time things are going to be very different. This time, we're going to knock him out. That's a promise to all the people who believe in us."

Alvarez and Golovkin met for the first time in 2017 with the affair ending in a controversial split draw. The former then prevailed in the rematch set a year later to stain GGG’s previously unblemished record.

Alvarez was slated to fight WBO Super Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders in May but was delayed indefinitely due to the coronavirus. Golovkin, on the other hand, is said to be defending his IBF title against Kamil Szeremeta at The Forum in California in June after several delays.

The 29-year-old Alvarez had earlier stressed that he has no interest in fighting Golovkin again, saying the Olympic Silver Medalist “has nothing to offer.”

The conditions have changed, and it looks like the Mexican will still have to deal with his bitter adversary for one more time. Primarily, Reynoso revealed that Alvarez has been training at 160 where they want to fight Triple G.

"We want to fight Golovkin at 160 pounds,” bared Reynoso, who also said that their team is contemplating on pitting Alvarez for two fights in 2020 as they lean towards ultimately moving up at super middleweight. “We'll see afterward if there is something there at 160, and if not we'll go up to 168. Canelo has been fine-tuning over the years, and we're going to make a lot of noise at 168."

Alvarez, who is regarded as the face of boxing, boasts 53 wins in 56 fights that include 36 victories via KO. Meanwhile, Golovkin has 40 wins on 88% KO rate with only one defeat and a draw – both of which were served by the Mexican.
