17 September, 2017, 00:47
CaneloAlvarez and Gennady Golovkin are two of the very best in the sport today, and perhaps of all time. Fighting Miguel Cotto and Amir Khan in the fall of 2015 and the spring of 2016, Alvarez sold a combined 1.5 million PPV buys.
Gennady Golovkin's bout on Saturday (Sunday morning, Manila time) with Canelo Alvarez has not enjoyed the same anticipation as last month's clash between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor but it is the one boxing purists are calling the fight of the year. In boxing every day is hard and risky.
Canelo vs. Golovkin takes place Saturday, September 16 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View beginning at a special time of 8:00 p.m. ET/ 5:00 p.m. PT. Saunders has only fought once since then in which he scraped a decision victory against a massive underdog, Artur Akavov.
A fighter who is not only undefeated, but never has been knocked down, the 35-year-old Kazakhstani-born pugilist took the boxing realm by storm from his days as an amateur and Olympic silver medalist. Both fighters weighed in Friday at the middleweight limit of 160 pounds. While Alvarez often lets his opponents advance, he aggressively engages them in a game extremely hard for them to win; using his advantage in size and strength with a constantly evolving punching skillset to break down his opponents.
"I don't want to talk too much", Golovkin said this week at their final pre-fight press conference, to which a Spanish-speaking Alvarez followed, "You know me, I don't like to talk a lot". The only disappointment in his display was that he didn't find a way to finish a spiritless Chavez off early. Golovkin, who speaks limited English, backed his comments up with a tweet warning Alvarez what was yet to come.

"I believe this is my first step to history", Golovkin said.
If Alvarez can stay out of range of Golovkin's jab and stymie any of Triple G's forward marches in close, he has the timing and skill to counter Golovkin and bank enough rounds to get the judges to award him a victory.
- Golovkin has never touched the canvas, neither as an amateur or as a professional.
