Canelo vs. GGG: Alvarez says fight with Golovkin was never in doubt

Canelo vs. GGG: Alvarez says fight with Golovkin was never in doubt

Golovkin promised his signature "big drama show" Saturday night, but many feel 26-year-old Canelo will provide his toughest test to date. On Saturday, four years after fighting Mayweather, he's slated for another significant fight when he takes on unified middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin at the sold-out T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas (HBO PPV, 8 p.m. ET).

Whatever you call it, it shapes up as the most anticipated fight of the year in boxing.

Ahead of the fight, the two fighters faced a flood of press and fans at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, with Golovkin taking the opportunity to parade his belts in front of the cameras. In this case, the two best at middleweight just happen to be two of the most popular fighters in the entire sport. "The recent handle has been tremendous with solid two-way action and the current line is GGG -150 and Canelo +130".




From the opening bell, Golovkin's jab was in sublime form, with GGG throwing his left hand with subtle variations of rhythm and power which kept the Canadian on the back foot struggling to dictate or cope with the pace. And the ideal fight for me. My last opponent, Avtandil Khurtsidze got arrested and the fight was cancelled. "I will enjoy it", Golovkin said. He is a superstar over there in South America and probably been involved in bigger fights than his opponent in terms of viewership and build-ups. Thankfully, Canelo-Golovkin is almost upon us, and the fight is at least happening within the acceptable window of peak viability.

Possessing impeccable records and incredible knockout power, both fighters have also promised a "Mexican-style" drama show, having indicated that their intentions are exclusively focused on stopping their opponent, going as far as guaranteeing that this fight will not go the distance. "We've seen the best of him and I think people actually know - and this is a big factor - he is just human".
