Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin "GGG"

Canelo-GGG is a reminder of how good the sport can be - how it used to be - when one simple philosophy matters most: the best fighting the best. I'm sure he could have used his boxing skills if he had wanted to but instead he chose to walk through the welterweight's punches, that clearly didn't bother him, in order to walk him down, close off the ring and land his own shots that subsequently shattered his eye-socket and finished the fight in the fifth-round. The Kazakh worked the head and the body with sharp bursts, putting on a clinic in stopping his dance partner in the eighth round with Steve Willies jumping in confirming the TKO. He is a superstar over there in South America and probably been involved in bigger fights than his opponent in terms of viewership and build-ups. Whether you want to watch the fight from the comfort of your couch or are looking for a more lively setting to take in the sporting event, you've got a few options to choose from come fight night.

I think that Golovkin's jab will be the difference in the fight, with GGG keeping Canelo at distance long enough to squeak by in a very competitive match.

Canelo could win by out-boxing him but I just can't see that happening.

"I always prepare myself to give the best". It will, no doubt, be a big test for Bill but if he comes through it then he deserves a shot at the victor of Canelo v Golovkin. Die-hard fight fans have been there and done that many times before with that kind of hyperbole.

"This fight with Canelo is important for boxing", said Golovkin. In fact, one can argue that the delay has only made it feel like a bigger event, allowing Alvarez's elite skill set at age 27 to catch up with his huge popularity.

"I'm going to go in there and win the fight".

So, who wins? The answer is: we do - the fans who have been longing for two champions at the top of their game to risk everything and fight each other for the glory of being the best, without the need for trash talk, without intervention from promoters. He has successfully defended his middleweight crown 18 straight times and believes at the age of 35 he could shatter Bernard Hopkins' record of 20 straight defenses. In fact, this will be Golovkin's first fight in Las Vegas. "I'm expecting him to come forward and come for the knockout". I feel very comfortable.
