Gennadiy Golovkin blasts Canelo Alvarez over 'clownish behavior,' feels disrespected by DAZN, Eddie Hearn

Canelo Alvarez barely hid his disdain for rival Gennadiy Golovkin during media tour stops in Los Angeles and New York to promote their Sept. 17 bout for the undisputed super middleweight title at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Alvarez, who got a draw in their first fight in 2017 and won the second in 2018, referred to Golovkin as “an a**hole,” during interviews in Los Angeles. His ire is largely in response to Golovkin’s comments in 2018 about him shortly after Alvarez tested positive for the banned substance Clenbuterol, forcing postponement of their second bout.
