Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin

Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin

Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin are two of the very best in the sport today, and perhaps of all time.

The Mexican has bounced back from that defeat though, winning two world titles in two different divisions and become known as one of the globe's best pound-for-pound fighters.

I think this fight will last the distance because Munroe hasn't got knockout power - 26% KO ratio - and Saunders' stoppages mostly came in the first half of his career.

The fight's undercard starts at 6 p.m., and it's also at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin will face off Saturday night in what's billed as the first "true" superfight since Floyd Mayweather defeated Conor McGregor in August.

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

Of course, Alvarez is a better quality opponent than anyone Golovkin has faced.

Both men looked in peak condition ahead of their blockbuster meeting in Las Vegas on Saturday, when Golovkin will put his flawless 37-0 record on the line against the Mexican (49-1-1).

That said, many have criticized him for picking his fights carefully following his loss to Mayweather. Indeed they do, which is one reason Golovkin has had trouble getting fighters in the ring with him.

The fight with Cotto represents arguably the Mexican's biggest victory and saw him claim the vacant WBC world middleweight title.

"This will be a brutal, vicious fight, and I'm ready". But this is as much a pick 'em fight as one can ever have. "They're going to hit each other and give fans the kind of fight they want and expect". He scored an eighth-round TKO over David Lemieux two years ago to win another middleweight belt, and he retained his titles in March with a unanimous decision victory over Daniel Jacobs.

A fighter who is not only undefeated, but never has been knocked down, the 35-year-old Kazakhstani-born pugilist took the boxing realm by storm from his days as an amateur and Olympic silver medalist. Golovkin is the harder hitter but Alvarez has a speed advantage.
