Unfortunately, the promoters were not able to face-off Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin because the very arrogant Canelo and his equally arrogant Team wanted top start a fight right then and there before the face off was even done. Their action, to this writer was a blatant show of false Mexican bravado.
