Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin "GGG"

Now it's time for the real fight of the century

On Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Canelo will once again be fighting against conventional wisdom; when betting opened, Vegas pegged GGG the favorite, and despite some movement on the lines, Canelo still remains a +125 underdog on the money line. In this case, the two best at middleweight just happen to be two of the most popular fighters in the entire sport. We know that in fights, it takes two to tango.

"I know what I have in front of me".

"I feel good and I am ready for anybody".

Although Alvarez, 27, and Golovkin, 35, who is from Kazakhstan and lives in Santa Monica, California, both have outstanding power, Khan said he thinks the fight will go the 12-round distance. Let's just hope he brings it as well'.

Canelo on Gennady Golovkin

The Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin press conference is brought to you by FITE TV and can be streamed below.

"I'm excited and happy that the fight is nearly here". Like middleweight division, I believe the boxing division will come back. And Canelo, he's a very special guy.

"Right off the top, the interest for me is it's a huge fight". "It's one which I'm really looking forward to watching because fans have been asking to see this for a long time. Especially for me, it's huge", said Golovkin. I remember a lot of great champions, like Carlos Monzon, Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, Bernard Hopkins. Canelo has beat up on smaller (Miguel Cotto, Amir Khan) or inferior (James Kirkland, Liam Smith, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.) foes recently; Golovkin, despite getting tagged by Brook with a few eye-catching combinations, literally broke the Englishman's face, and his exceptional jab won him the Jacobs fight in a contest where he proved he can battle a crafty foe for 12 brisk rounds.

There are many who predict the fight will be an instant classic, and Khan is one of them.
