Golovkin, the favorite to win, comes into the fight 37-0 with 33 wins by knockout. This means that fans of the sports are looking forward to see the outcome of the upcoming sold-out match between the two middleweight fighters.
Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin highlight Saturday's fight card at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, facing off in the main event of an entire night of boxing.
Gennady Golovkin landed 40.1% of his total punches- #1 among active fighters and he's only active fighter to land 40% or more of his power punches now that Money is re-retired.
But after both men hit the scales bang on the 160-pound mark Canelo said he's raring to go and promised to capture the Kazakh knockout king's WBC, WBA, IBF and IBO world titles. Utilizing a snapping jab and brutal overhand right, Golovkin dishes out as much damage with his precise combinations as he does with his aggression as an in-fighter.
Alvarez, Golovkin meet in fight for the middle-ages
The 35-year-old Golovkin will climb the ring a physically bigger man, being a natural middleweight, but Canelo has soared high as a boxing great by becoming a two-weight world champion. "I don't back down", Alvarez said. In the USA, he fought in New York, California and CT so far. Just note that the fight will only be available through your cable box and not through HBO Go or HBO Now.
This will be the 10th time that Alvarez has boxed in Las Vegas, where he has been built into the star to replace Mayweather. Since being thrown to the fire early with his career's lone loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr., Alvarez has risen to megastar status.
He's lived through the golden eras of Joe Louis and Sugar Ray Robinson, Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier, Sugar Ray Leonard and Roberto Duran, and he's still actively promoting fights in Northern California. Both will make millions of dollars in a fight that holds risks - and plenty of rewards - for both of their careers.
"He is the most risky opponent of my career, but I'm ready for him and what's next to come", said the former WBC and WBA super welterweight champion. The fight likely won't be on there but a good trick is to look in the Live Chat section. "I wish it was an hour to the fight instead of having to wait until tomorrow".
