GENNADY GOLOVKIN has accused rival Canelo Alvarez of “arrogance” and warned him ahead of their trilogy fight that the judges are “not loyal to him anymore”.
The pair will meet for their third and possibly final time on Saturday, September 17.
The last two encounters ended in a shared draw and a narrow win for 32-year-old Canelo.
And Golovkin believes that now he knows the weakness of the rival Canelo before their fight.
Golovkin, 40, has accused Canelo of “arrogance” and says it is “criminal”.
He told the NY Daily News of Canelo’s weakness: “Arrogance. And arrogance is punishable.”
Golovkin also says the judges are no longer scoring in Canelo’s favour.
Kazakhstan says the judges are “not loyal to Canelo anymore” and don’t feel the burden of his image.
Commenting on Canelo’s first loss since 2013 to Dmitry Bivol, he said: “In his last fight, the knockout wasn’t necessary [to beat him].
“It is encouraging that the judges are no longer loyal to Canelo. You no longer feel this burden of his image.”

Golovkin went one step further, claiming that Canelo had “a lot of bad qualities.”
He said: “[Canelo] doesn’t bother me at all, but when a person has a lot of bad qualities, qualities that stand in the way of him leading a normal life.
“That bothers him. We’re seeing that right now.”
