Is Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin the most anticipated fight in years?

Oscar De La Hoya: 'We have an opportunity to bring back glory days' of boxing

Recall that both Golovkin and Alvarez hit scales on 160 pounds (72.57 kg). Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez meet Saturday night in a middleweight showdown that has been brewing for years.

This will be the first time Golovkin will fight in Las Vegas, the boxing and entertainment capital of the world.

The bout will take place on September 16 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

I'm veering towards GGG, given his experience in the ring with bigger boxers and his ability to dictate the pace.

Certainly, Golovkin's style is not going to trouble him in the way an awkward mover such as Lara did.

Canelo is still trying to establish himself at middleweight and is receiving a baptism of fire against GGG, the undefeated IBF, IBO, WBA and WBC world champion.

Golovkin (37-0, 33 knockouts) has been established as a 2-1 favorite over Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 knockouts) in a bout that was several years in the making.

We know that, but perhaps outside of that fact some are suggesting that Canelo Alvarez as the younger man now boxing in a weight class that he should have been in long ago, could actually be the physically stronger of the two.




One key factor, says Chargin, and something people don't always think about, is the powerful urge to win for both fighters.

A fighter who holds the drawing power, mass appeal and resume of Alvarez usually doesn't have much to prove.

So logically, many do believe that Golovkin's only chance to beat the red-headed fighter from Jalisco is by a clean and resounding knock-out.

"I'm so excited about this fight".

Saunders' promoter Frank Warren is confident his boxer will face the victor of Golovkin-Alvarez should he beat Monroe Jr.

Golovkin, meanwhile, came back from a victory previous year over then-welterweight champion Kell Brook with a puffy face. His last fight was a unanimous decision win over Daniel Jacobs, his biggest fight to date. "I am the boss, not Canelo". Those in the United Kingdom will also have their chance to see the much-awaited bout on Box Nation by 2 a.m. local time.

In the weeks leading up to Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather, you probably read the word "spectacle" more times than you had previously in your entire life.
