GGG vs. Canelo: Preview And Prediction

Adjust Comment Print

From the time the idea of a Gennady Golovkin-Canelo Alvarez match was born two years ago, the prevailing wisdom has seemed to be that Golovkin's crushing power would expose the popular redhead.

Saturday's clash between Alvarez (left) and Golovkin pits opponents who are easily the two best middleweights in boxing and two of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the sport.

Oleksandr Usyk and Marco Huck kicked of the WBSS cruiserweight version last weekend with the unbeaten Ukrainian handing the German his fifth career defeat with a 10-round TKO.

But in June, the Mayweather-McGregor fight was announced and the outspoken fighters commanded the media spotlight, helped along by a four-city worldwide media tour that stretched across three countries. But fighting Alvarez would be a great danger for Mayweather now than in 2013, if Canelo wins against Golovkin. Golovkin has 33 incredible knockouts to his name, while Canelo Alvarez (49-1-1) has 37 (and quite a few souls stolen).

The most recent, against mandatory challenger Avtandil Khurtsidze, was cancelled a month from the fight date as Khurtsidze was arrested for alleged involvement with organised crime.

Saunders will defend his WBO middleweight title against Willie Monroe London's Copper Box Arena on Saturday night and, as was to be expected, there was an incident at the weigh-ins. Still, it promises to be a can't miss fight that brings back memories of the great middleweights of the 1980's.

It is rare to say that a 28-year-old is facing a career defining fight; however, this appears to be the case for Billy Joe.

When is the fight and what time is it on?

In the process, both combatants give fight fans the show they have long anticipated and gives boxing the violent, exciting boost in the arm many have been wanting for so long.

How can I watch Canelo vs GGG on TV?

Golovkin, who speaks limited English, backed his comments up with a tweet warning Alvarez what was yet to come.

The Lowcountry's next big question: 'What about Hurricane Jose?'
Hurricane Jose now sits on the northern side of the Caribbean Islands and it might just be heading towards the Canadian coasts. Both storms followed a similar path, moving west across the Atlantic before making a sharp turn to the north.
