Canelo Alvarez says his intention to knock out Gennady Golovkin is becoming an obsession.
“Every night before going to bed, I visualize the knockout,” Alvarez told reporters Wednesday. “I trained for the knockout. It is not something I can predict or I can say this … but it is something I can visualize.”
Golovkin (37-0, 33 knockouts) not only has never been knocked down in his pro career, his trainer, Abel Sanchez, said the three-belt middleweight champion hasn’t been decked in sparring, and no one has yet unearthed a detail that Golovkin was dropped in more than 300 amateur bouts.
