In his most recent fight against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., Alvarez just about made the sport look easy, comfortably controlling the fight for all 12 rounds en-route to a resounding unanimous-decision victory. "I want to box for five years more - maybe until 40", he said.
Where can I watch the fight? "It's a true fight", Golovkin said. Many criticised the New Yorker for quitting against "GGG" and he admits to being, "caught up in the moment".
His 23 opponent enjoyed a long and successful amateur career that included losing to two-weight world champion Badou Jack in the Swedish national championships.
It is widely accepted that Callum is the best boxer of the foursome, winning the Commonwealth silver medal in 2010 as an amateur and claiming British and European super-middleweight titles as a pro.
- Golovkin is fighting in Las Vegas for the very first time despite having 10 previous bouts as a pro in the United States. "The energy will be off the charts", added GGG.
The clock is now ticking within the combat sports realm as two of the world's best boxers meet in a middleweight battle Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. "Let me repeat this is a fight boxing can be proud of".
Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) has all-around talent, a great counterpunching game and mass appeal.
Alvarez's only defeat came in 2013 against Floyd Mayweather, who was too fast and smart for him. The question will be as to who gives out first and will the much-vaunted jab of GGG unsettle the forward movement of Canelo? I learned a lot in that fight, added the Mexican boxing icon. This will not be a Mayweather-McGregor match.
According to several different casinos and betting cages, 48% of all wagers placed on this fight have been in favor of the crafty Guadalajara native, with 46% of the action favoring a Golovkin victory and a microscopic 6% anticipating a draw. The former pound-for-pound king of the world has remarkably slowed down.
