Gennady Golovkin has amusing comment about his 'GGG' alter ego

Gennady Golovkin has amusing comment about his 'GGG' alter ego

I'm hoping being in the ring with the best Gennady will bring out the best Canelo. The fight will be held from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and air live on PPV.

Many boxing fans I've talked with told me that it was Canelo ducking GGG, I told them the fight will happen but on Canelo's terms since he is the big draw.

He has a single loss to Floyd "Money" Mayweather against 49 wins with 34 knockouts. My last opponent, Avtandil Khurtsidze got arrested and the fight was cancelled.

Even with his high output, he is one of the most accurate punchers in the sport. More potential cracks appeared in GGG's recent clash with Sheffield-born welterweight Kell Brook, where his notoriously front foot heavy stance left him susceptible to taking big flashy uppercuts to the chin - which are somewhat of a speciality of Canelo. If he doesn't score the knockout, will he be able to out-point Canleo for 12 rounds? There are very few fights you consider for that title.

Reverting to plan B, Lemieux started trying to walk down Golovkin in the middle rounds which lead to a similar lack of success in finding the gaps in Golovkin's defence.

GETTYCanelo and GGG are expected to put on a serious display of boxing

Prior to this "super fight" Canelo had been an underdog just once in his career: against the now 50-0 Floyd Mayweather back in 2013, when the Mexican fighter was +235 on the books.

Golovkin doesn't have the tools that Canelo has, all he can do is go forward and try to break you down by imposing his will on you.

Styles make fights, and we can expect to see a true search and destroy battle between counterpuncher Saul Alvarez and hunter Gennady Golovkin.

Golovkin, the unbeaten knockout puncher from Kazakhstan, will defend his middleweight titles against Alvarez, Mexico's biggest boxing star. Triple G feels the only reason the fight is happening is because he struggled in his last bout against Daniel Jacobs, whom he proudly calls the second best middle weight in the world.

But maybe that is not such a surprise when you consider that Alvarez turned pro at just 15-years-old after running out of amateur opponents while still just a boy.
