Canelo Álvarez’s reasons for leaving Golden Boy Promotions

The disagreements between DAZN, Golden Boy Promotions and Canelo Álvarez, ultimately caused the Mexican boxer to decide to follow his path elsewhere and even He accused Óscar de la Hoya’s company of “only seeking his benefit.”

“I sued DAZN and Golden Boy together. Nobody dares to do that. If you know you did things right, you don’t have to be afraid of making a move of that magnitude. You know that you will always win, you know that you did things well. Even if I earn less, I’m not going to let them say what I have to earn. In my contract it said that the fights were for both (money). But if he fought with ‘Triple G’, with (Floyd) Mayweather or with a name like that, it’s up for negotiation. I was not going to fight for the same amount. But Golden Boy had already promised and signed DAZN that he was going to fight Golovkin for the same amount, and they never told me. Decisions are made by other people. When Richard Schaefer left Golden Boy, he took all the fighters over to PBC. And he also wanted to take me, I was the only fighter who stayed because I am a loyal man. Then I understood why everyone had left and why Richard left. Those who are in Golden Boy only seek their own benefit, not that of the boxers…”

“I have thought about what happened and when. Canelo said that he was not loyal and I think I know where that comes from. I remember giving an interview and not criticizing Eddy Reynoso, but telling Canelo that maybe he should use a different trainer or someone new and different who could teach him new techniques, like I changed trainers and how Ryan Garcia is doing now”.
