The Final Canelo Alvarez/Gennady Golovkin Faceoff Ahead Of Saturday's Showdown

Gennady Golovkin

Despite Lemieux earning props for taking a fight he didn't necessarily need to, the former IBF champion was dismantled in the "Big Apple", with GGG's star rising to new levels, and calls for the Canelo fight to happen next reverberating around the Garden.

The IBF, IBO, WBA, WBC middleweight belts held by Golovkin, as well as the Ring title, which is now held by Canelo, will all be on the line when the two titans clash at the T-Mobile Arena Saturday. In fact, this will be Golovkin's first fight in Las Vegas.

The highly-anticipated middleweight boxing title fight between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada, September 16. He has 25 knockouts that have occurred in the six round or earlier.

His last fight against Julio Cesar Chavez resulted in a comfortable points win but sparked boos from a crowd unimpressed by Chavez's survive-at-all-costs approach. The fight is more important to him.

Brook feels confident that Canelo has the youth, the speed, size and more importantly, punching power, to derail Golovkin.

How Can I Watch Golovkin Vs. Alvarez?

Canelo could win by out-boxing him but I just can't see that happening. For what it's worth, Mayweather insists that "flat footed" GGG makes a lot of mistakes and will absolutely not defeat the Mexican.

Golovkin doesn't have the tools that Canelo has, all he can do is go forward and try to break you down by imposing his will on you.

A fighter should fight anyone and I think they would all be as hard a fight as each other but I'd probably rather fight "GGG" because I wouldn't have to go looking for him. There were moments in that fight where he looked to be struggling.
