Golovkin strode toward the ring, the same one he'd appeared in a year earlier after being jilted by Alvarez.

"The percentages of a knockout are very high, are very good because of the styles, because of the knockout ratios of both", Alvarez, who'll face Chavez at a contracted catch weight of 164½ pounds, said through a translator. It was after the fight, however, in an announcement by Alvarez, that sent shockwaves through the arena.

"This is the most anticipated fight, right next to Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao, but the difference is this fight will have a lot of action, non-stop action".

"Boxing has had its share of ups and downs", he added. "Right now, we're living a great moment for boxing, and we will for a long time".

And Golovkin warned the 26-year-old he would not be in for such an easy ride on September 16.
