Golovkin Wants Canelo Fight To Be Historic

Golovkin Wants Canelo Fight To Be Historic

The most eagerly-awaited boxing match in years will take place tomorrow night, when Saul "Canelo" Alvarez challenges Gennady (GGG) Golovkin for the undisputed middleweight title of the world in Las Vegas. He has an unblemished 37-0-0 record coming into this fight, with 33 coming by way of KO.

Golovkin is from Kazakhstan, where he started fighting as a child.

It is widely accepted that Callum is the best boxer of the foursome, winning the Commonwealth silver medal in 2010 as an amateur and claiming British and European super-middleweight titles as a pro.

The knockout percentage and punching power lays with Golovkin, but will it be enough to stop Canelo inside the distance? Golovkin doesn't seem to mind being hit. But he will have to take my punches too.

There are many YouTube videos of Golovkin, mostly of low quality. Canelo turned professional at 15.

The super-middleweight format isn't filled with quite as many top names as the cruiserweight tournament - George Groves is the only world champion involved. Alvarez is already an established superstar, arguably the most popular athlete in Mexico.

GGG is the betting favorite, albeit narrowly.

At 27, Mexican Alvarez is the younger by eight years.

"I believe this is my first step to history", Golovkin said. It's the fight boxing fans have been waiting for nearly as long. It won't be the first time the two have met, but it will be under far different circumstances.

"If it's Canelo it'll be in the States, and if it's Golovkin we may have a chance of staging it in the UK". I think that day likely will come tomorrow.

A free live stream of Golovkin GGG versus Canelo Alvarez will be all over the Internet Saturday night, it will just be hard to find until the minutes leading up to the fight.

"He has a very aggressive style".

All this isn't to say that Golovkin can't win on points-he did exactly that against Jacobs, showing he can box well in the later rounds he so rarely sees-and Alvarez can't win by stoppage. "You know me, I don't back down. I'm ready to show how a true Mexican fights", Canelo told BoxNation. One of the more underrated athletes in the sport, he is a ring general and the best at cutting the ring.
