“Rompeles el hocico!”
Canelo Alvarez vs. GGG is almost upon us, and the career-defining fight has lots of people excited to see two of boxing’s best go at it and, hopefully, deliver a memorable fight. Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez will have his hands full with Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, the hard-hitting, aggressive knockout artist who is considered the favorite in this middleweight bout. To hype up Canelo for the fight, his team rounded up some of Latin America’s biggest stars to show their support for the 27-year-old boxer.
There’s lots of familiar faces throughout the video. Karla Souza (“How To Get Away With Murder”), Itati Cantoral, Chicharito, Adrian Gonzalez (Los Angeles Dodgers), Pepe Aguilar, Jamie Camil and Eiza Gonzalez all express their best wishes to Canelo. It’s not just Mexicans, though: Carlos Ponce, Wilmer Valderrama and even Drake Bell of “Drake and Josh” fame make appearances in the supercut. On his official Facebook, Canelo thanked everyone for the support: “Quiero agradecer a mi equipo y a todos los que participaron en este detalle. Muchas gracias a todos y este 16 es nuestro, es de México.”
