Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez's biggest fights

Posted September 17, 2017

Both very skilled boxers, it's interesting to observe that the bigger star in this equation, Canelo Alvarez, has fought multiple times in Las Vegas and is Golden Boy Promotions" "Golden Boy", while Golovkin will be fighting his maiden fight in the "Fight Capital of the world'. Golovkin punches harder, although Canelo is the more thoughtful puncher of the two, he's got the better boxing IQ. That was suffered by Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 knockouts) in 2013 against Mayweather in a fight he admitted he was too young to take.

Only the August 26 PPV that was headlined by Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor is expected to outsell Saturday's PPV this year.

"But I have more experience now, I'm more complete as a fighter, more confident in the ring. In Russian, obviously I am not understanding but you can kind of hear in the tone of the voice what he is doing wrong and what he needs to do more of so I think it helps me a lot more than Gennady", explained Sanchez.

The most anticipated boxing match of the year takes place for the Middleweight WBA title as undefeated Kazakhstani pugilist Gennady "GGG" Golovkin takes on the biggest box-office attraction in boxing today, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. "After I have my hand raised in victory, I will be one fight away from realizing my dream of winning a world championship". Indeed they do, which is one reason Golovkin has had trouble getting fighters in the ring with him.

With the unified middleweight titles on the line, Alvarez and "GGG" bring much more than just gold to this contest.

"I believe this is my first step to history", Golovkin said. "I'm happy for all the love from these fans and I'll give them 100 per cent like I always do".

The 35-year-old Kazakh went on a 23-bout stoppage streak that spanned roughly nine years before Daniel Jacobs managed to survive 12 rounds with him back in March.

If Liverpool get on a roll when attacking at home, not many can stop them and I can see that happening in this one. Burnley have started the season well as they look to survive in the Premier League for the second consecutive year.
