Kazakh poisonous punching great, Gennady ‘Triple G’ Golovkin has warned his middleweight compatriots that he has no plans of hanging his gloves despite his age.
Golovkin [35yrs] with an enviable record of [37-0, 33KO’s] whose last fight in the ring was against Daniel Jacobs last March, winning on points.
The knockout expert will have his IBO, WBC, IBF, WBA ‘super’ world middleweight titles on the line as he comes face-to-face with Saul Canelo Alvarez on September 16, 2017 in Las Vegas – the biggest fight of the year.
“I feel great at this age. In my training every day, I’m just the same. My sparring is the same, my speed and my power – I don’t lose it,” said Golovkin.
“I feel now like I did 10 years ago. I’m 35, but I feel like 25. Maybe inside, maybe right now I’m younger than Alvarez. I feel like 25. How long will I go on for? Maybe like 40, five years more. This is boxing. Every day is difficult and dangerous,” the Kazakh added.
Golovkin whose highly anticipated title fight against the Mexican boxing stalwart [Canelo Alvarez] will be his 19th middleweight defence, one behind Bernard Hopkins  believes that the support he’s enjoying from his family is keeping him on.
“But right now I feel great. Everything’s good. My family and my team support me. I feel very comfortable. So probably, yeah, five years more.”
Canelo Alvarez [49-1-1, 34 KO’s] who’ll stand toe-to-toe with Gennady Golovkin has only been beaten once in his boxing career and that was against Floyd Mayweather Jr.
