PUNXSUTAWNEY PHIL PREDICTS SIX MORE YEARS AS WORLD CHAMPION FOR GENNADY “GGG” GOLOVKIN

PhilBoxing.com




GOBBLER'S KNOB (Groundhog Day 2018) – At 7:25 A.M. ET today, wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with #GGG20, Punxsutawney Phil -- the Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of Prognosticators -- emerged from his burrow at Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney, PA, and proclaimed, in his native Groundhogese, that the fists of boxing's superhero and World Middleweight Champion GENNADY “GGG” GOLOVKIN would act as judge and jury in his Cinco De Mayo title defense rematch against two-division world champion Saul “Canelo (Cinnamon)” Alvarez.

“It will be six more years as world champion for Triple G. He is the Tom Brady of boxing. If he is using the TB12 Method, sign me up,” said America’s most quotable quadruped. “Beyond a shadow of a doubt, I predict that the fighter who fights like a Mexican -- Triple G -- is going to make the fighter who runs like Usain Bolt – Canelo -- look like a jabroni in their rematch. Triple G is leaving the ring on May 5 with all his championship belts plus the one owned by Canelo‘s promoter’s magazine. There is no stopping the Triple G Express from its date with destiny – another victory over Canelo and his 20th and record-tying title defense. Cinnamon’s toast.”

Before returning to his burrow, Phil was pressed for a definitive answer on whether Canelo had a chance of dethroning GGG, who has reigned supreme over the middleweight division since 2010.

Quoth the groundhog, "Nevermore."
