Golovkin will outduel Canelo in boxing classic

Golovkin will outduel Canelo in boxing classic

Mayweather fought at 154 lbs, but Canelo is now a big middleweight, and his heft might balloon to 180 plus come fight night with GGG.

There were whispers the Mexican, who is making the jump up from super-welterweight, had overtrained as he started camp a lot earlier than he normally does and could have actually come in above the 160lb limit.

The mythical pound-for-pound title is also at stake in the "Supremacy" main event as the Alvarez vs. Golovkin victor - both fighters are rated among the top 5 in virtually all polls used to rank fighters regardless of weight classes - will become the undisputed world middleweight champion and arguably the world's best of the best.

Alvarez also expects a hard fight.

Once you purchase the fight, two new channels will appear in your lineup (in English and in Spanish), which will go live as soon as the pre-fight event begins. "It's unsafe. Everyone understands that".

They are two tough men, punishing punchers, brilliant boxers and very evenly matched.

However, he insists he is ready to take it to the Kazakhstani fighter as he bids to end his 37-match winning streak.

In Golovkin, you have a prototypical boxer of this generation - fast, powerful, adaptable, resilient and extremely intelligent.

"I know what is around the corner, I want to test myself against one of the greats".

"I am going to give the fans a special fight - a real fight". The combination of styles has boxing fans salivating over what will happen in the same ring where Mayweather stopped McGregor three weeks ago.

"He was a little wild with it until the last three or four fights".

The fight with Cotto represents arguably the Mexican's biggest victory and saw him claim the vacant WBC world middleweight title. However, once the pace steadies and both fighters get into their groove, it'll be a fun fight with both men landing telling shots.

"When I was born, all of the fear had already been given out", he said through a translator, per The Guardian's Bryan Armen Graham.

But it's also $10-$20 cheaper at most of the places you can pay to go watch it, too. We answer the bell and with a combo attack looking at the tastiest prop bets on the board for the big fight.
