What Time Does the Canelo-Golovkin Fight Start?

What Time Does the Canelo-Golovkin Fight Start?

But if you want what's going to be the best fight of the year, that's probably happening Saturday night when Canelo Alavarez fights Gennady Golovkin - aka GGG. 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.

Golovkin, the unbeaten knockout puncher from Kazakhstan, will defend his middleweight titles against Alvarez, Mexico's biggest boxing star. Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) will now be fighting as a full-fledged 160-pound middleweight after his lopsided unanimous decision victory over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. on May 6.

Alvarez's only defeat came in 2013 against Floyd Mayweather, who was too fast and smart for him.

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

A knockout artist with counterpunching prowess, Alvarez incorporates body shots and left hooks to pummel his opposition in close exchanges inside the pocket. Cotto is aiming to fight the victor of the Alvarez-Golovkin bout before the end of 2017. "I'm confident, but everyone can get hurt". It promises to be arguably the fight of the century - or at least the decade.

An unrelenting pressure fighter with one of the best chins the modern sport has seen, Golovkin (37-0) uses calculated punching combinations to compliment his swarming style. While tenaciously walking down opponents, Golovkin also demonstrates great technical skills and punching accuracy. However he wants to fight I am ready. His adversary on Saturday is the complete opposite.

"I would argue that a Mexican Warrior is one that has heart, passion, and fights with all he has until the very end with intuition and intelligence".

Because a knock-out at the elite level is very rare indeed, smart money should be placed on a Canelo points victory, straddled by a Golovkin KO. If he can manage to leave the controversies behind him on Saturday and put in a performance that so many people believe he can, it will be impossible for Golovkin or Canelo to look past him.
