The Kazakh fighter, who currently owns the WBC, FIB, OIB and AMB strips in the middle division, said Saunders was no more than a “clown”, which should not be considered.
“Of course I want all [the] belts. This is my goal, to hold all of the belts in the Middleweight division,”
“Everyone knows him, he is not serious. He’s a clown!” said Saúl’s next opponent.

“Everybody wants to watch this fight,” argued GGG. “Everybody has waited for this fight! I think this is the biggest fight in boxing right now. A big drama show is coming!
“I know him, he knows me. We respect both. He’s a huge fighter, I’m the Champion. This is an amazing time for boxing.” said the fighter when asked about the importance of his duel with ‘Canelo’, which was confirmed months after they fell the talks to confront the Olympic ex-medalist.
Also, the fighter played down that Floyd Mayweather was going to fight with Conor McGregor a few weeks before his suit, being emphatic that will not be a reason to end the interest among the public.
“Everybody understands that my fight with Canelo is a true fight, a boxing fight,” he said. “It is not a TV show or a funny show,” he said.
