But it is the first time for Golovkin, holder of the WBC, WBA and IBF titles.
Reuters/Henry BrowneMexican Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Kazakhstani Gennady Golovkin faced each other during the press conference of the September 16 bout that will be conducted at Nevada's T-Mobile Arena. "I am ready to reign at the top of the middleweight division for a long time", Canelo told BoxNation. "I'm ready to show how a true Mexican fights", said Canelo. Then you have a killer in GGG, who until his last fight, had never gone the full 12 rounds in his professional career, having finished 33 of his opponents via KO. "Both guys are not going to back down".
In what is viewed by many as the most intriguing boxing match of the year, the ice cold Kazakh puncher and the flame-haired Mexican go head to head as two of the sport's biggest names put it all on the line. Nonsense, he says. "I am the champion and I bring all my belts", Golovkin said.
"I think boxing is at a place right now where we're starting to feel and see the momentum shifting".
The mythical pound-for-pound title is also at stake in the "Supremacy" main event as the Alvarez vs. Golovkin victor - both fighters are rated among the top 5 in virtually all polls used to rank fighters regardless of weight classes - will become the undisputed world middleweight champion and arguably the world's best of the best. Expect action that will leave fans begging for a rematch from fighters extremely dedicated to their craft. "We are going to give a great battle", Golovkin said. In the U.S., he fought in New York, California and CT so far.

Canelo said he took his first defeat as an experience. As such, fans may be wondering if Canelo vs. GGG is on Showtime on Saturday night.
Both fighters while similar in their approach and styles have very different strengths and attributes.
As of Saturday at 7 a.m ET, Golovkin is a -160 favorite, Alvarez a slight +130 underdog, per OddsShark.com.
