‘I would have no problem with doing the second one straight away. We are giving the people what they want on Saturday night.
‘If they want more, we will do it again.’

He added: ‘This is the biggest fight for us and for boxing, it’s a huge true fight, it’s a history fight, I don’t believe this is the last fight for us, this is the first fight but I think we can have a second’

The Kazakh KO king is 35 but his trainer Abel Sanchez insists Triple G will still be capable of two more massive, brutal collisions with Canelo in the next two years.
He says: ‘I’m sure this will be a great fight here. A quick rematch would be fine for us but there would be no rush for us.
‘Trilogies are defining for great fighters and Gennady could go through one with no problem.
‘It is the motivation provided by top flight opponents which overcomes the years.
‘The challenge is mental not physical. No matter how tough the fights it is the training which is the grind. An older fighter needs a reason for keep going back to all those weeks in the gym.

Canelo said he had ‘nothing to say’ to his Kazakh foe ahead of their middleweight showdown
‘An historic trilogy would be a big reason.’
The two fighters came face-to-face on Wednesday for the final press conference ahead of fight night.
The Las Vegas showdown is being billed as ‘Supremacy’ and Oscar De La Hoya claimed the position of pound-for-pound king, as well as middleweight dominance, is on offer to the winner.
‘I feel very comfortable,’ Golovkin told RingTV after the head-to-head. ‘I saw Canelo is ready for a serious fight, serious business, this is the biggest gift to people.’
Asked what message he had for his Kazakh opponent, Canelo said: ‘I have nothing to say to him, they know what kind of fighter I am… I’m prepared.’
