As the countdown continues to his money-spinning rematch with Gennady Golovkin, Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez is entering the final days of his gruelling training camp.

The Mexican sensation meets his middleweight rival on September 15, with tempers flaring following the controversial draw in their first meeting and Canelo’s two failed drugs test since that Las Vegas showdown.

With the unified 160lb world titles again on the line at the T-Mobile Arena, Canelo has been leaving no stone unturned in his preparations for the rematch.

‘The cordiality that we had, not in the ring but outside of it, has ended,’ Canelo said of GGG

‘The cordiality that we had, not in the ring but outside of it, has ended because of many things. Because of the many times they opened their mouth. 

‘Everyone knows that I don’t like to talk a lot. It’s one of those times where — well, I have my way of being. I get mad. But I know how to control myself, though the cordiality between us has ended.

‘I know they are bothered, but I don’t know why since it is I who has made them gain so much (money). They say they don’t worry about that. They say they don’t fight about that, but that’s the first thing they fight about — the money, the purse. There’s nothing else they care about more. It’s hypocritical for them to say otherwise.’
