On Tuesday, DAZN Boxing posted a tweet asking: Who won the rematch between @Canelo and @GGG Boxing?’

The next day, Golovkin replied, “Is that even a question?”

It appears that the 40-year-old remains angry over the only loss in his professional career and is desperate to set the record straight.

He will have the chance to do so on Saturday when he takes on Canelo for the third time, looking for his first official win over the Mexican.

After struggling to impress the judges during their previous two encounters, some fans assume Golovkin is concerned about the fight that will last the entire distance.

However, he has denied that this is the case and believes he can repeat Dmitry Bivol’s feat of winning a decision against Canelo if the scorecards are needed.

When asked about the prospect of the fight going 12 rounds, Golovkin stated: Sports post: ‘No, I’m not worried about it.

“Let’s have his last fight against Bivol. That fight showed that judges can be reasonable. They gave him a few more rounds than expected, but they voted for Bivol, so the bottom line is that it’s not mandatory to take out Canelo to win.

“There may be judges with common sense.”
