Boxing Odds: Gennady Golovkin a -155 favorite vs. Canelo Alvarez 9/13/17

Market Heat Report Canelo-GGG Just Four Days Away Now it's time for the real fight of the century

He will engage a lot more against Golovkin than Jacobs or Brook did.

But if Golovkin participated in gamesmanship, it was boxing that taught him. "I want to win this fight because for me this win will be like a history fight, like so many fights, like Leonard vs Hagler and others from that era".

There was a time when it didn't seem that the fight would happen. Ironically, Alvarez is now the fighter moving up in weight to challenge the heavier champion.

Saturday will mark Canelo's second bout of 2017.

Saul Alvarez is flying the flag for Mexico, a country that loves their boxing.

In unifying the WBA (Super) and IBF world titles against a technically gifted fighter in Lemieux, Golovkin brushed aside a challenger many thought would give him the biggest test of his professional career.

While Mayweather's run atop the sport produced singular nights of big business, his dominance and advantageous matchmaking prevented a run of evenly matched fights where the prize at stake was equally as big to both participants.

At 35, Golovkin is eight years the senior of Canelo, but the Kazakh insists he is feeling as good as ever and believes he can continue to box into his fifth decade. The fight can go down a number a ways and both fighters will have to bring their absolute best to beat the other. It simply doesn't come into it, they can both handle the pressure.

She said that focus would be on "building governance and democratic institutions, human resource capacity and skill development". India has given four military helicopters to Afghanistan and imparted training to hundreds of Afghan security personnel.

It is likely GGG will dominate the first few rounds with his superior push-away style jab, succeeding in keeping Canelo at the range that suits him best.

But Golovkin was up at Big Bear Lake in camp and did not leave even when he got a call to say his wife was heading to hospital.

"That's true. He said, "I've already done my part". The Alvarez-Golovkin fight can still end in a lopsided decision if one of the fighters in the later rounds can still land more meaningless punches.

Who do you think will win?

"I feel great at this age".

After the spectacle that was Mayweather and McGregor, boxing fans finally get to see two of the best boxers now in the sport going toe-to-toe inside of the ring at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. But let's not underscore the importance of what Alvarez-Golovkin could mean to the future.

"I'd like to wish all the middleweights fighting this weekend the very best of luck!"
