Press Conference review

Canelo Alverez and GGG

By Paul Humphreys   - @intuboxing

The Final press conference before Canelo Alverez and GGG meet in the highly anticipated rematch of last year's stalemate at the T Mobile arena Las Vegas was a subdued and mundane affair.

The 2 combatants did not address each other or pose for the traditional face-off picture opportunities and the glaring absence of Golden Boy promotions chief Oscar De La Hoya, who, it was claimed, had a family emergency.

Eric Gomez, Oscar's right-hand man, did his best to inject some hype into proceedings.

"This is a case of both fighters putting everything aside and giving the fans what they want," Gomez said. "The fans were thirsty for more after the first fight [last] September, and I'm happy to say this Saturday they will get Round 13 and we can go on from there."

Let's hope the Friday's weigh-in is a more high profile and who knows we may even get a head to head!
