Canelo Matches Golovkin As Both Weigh In At 160lbs

Golovkin, from Kazakhstan but based in California, defends the other three versions of the world title (World Boxing Council, World Boxing Association and International Boxing Federation) against Mexico's Alvarez in a clash between boxing's biggest stars now that Floyd Mayweather Jr has gone back into retirement.

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez gives Gennady "GGG" Golovkin a warning that he will show him how a true Mexican fights, and he promised to reign as king of the middleweight division.

How can I watch Canelo vs GGG on TV?

"But I have more experience now, I'm more complete as a fighter, more confident in the ring".

"This fight has the same magnitude as my Mayweather fight or even more so, yet it's completely different because of our styles", he told the Telegraph.

“Lets see on Saturday if he is going to knock me out. 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. Canelo and Triple-G are the two best middleweights in the world, and according to many, they're the two best pound-for-pound boxers, as well.

There's plenty for fight fans to ponder in the buildup to this bout.

So you should believe Chargin, once described as "maybe the last gentleman promoter left in boxing", when he says that he's more psyched up about tonight's highly anticipated Canelo Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin middleweight title unification bout at T-Mobile Arena (HBO pay-per-view, 8 p.m. ET) than any fight in years. "But as we get into the later rounds, Golovkin's power and size should take over".

- Golovkin is fighting in Las Vegas for the very first time despite having 10 previous bouts as a pro in the United States. In the U.S., he fought in New York, California and CT so far.

Monroe, 30, is boxing for the first time in a year and has registered two points-wins since being stopped in six rounds by knockout specialist Golovkin. "Boxing needs this fight and I'm glad I was able to make it". GGG (in his last 13 fights) threw 23.2 more punches per round than Canelo Alvarez (in his last 9 fights). I learned a lot from that fight.

Boxing fans were overjoyed and relieved that the Canelo vs. GGG fight was in the works, but the fight De La Hoya had teased was still far away: A verbal agreement was allegedly in place for a September 2017 date.
