Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez played the roles of pressure fighter and counter-puncher and put on a great show for boxing fans.
The stylistic matchup between pressure fighter and boxer-puncher has provided some of boxing's most grueling, back-and-forth fights. Will this one live up to the hype?
Gennady Golovkin and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez are all set for the fight of the year on Sept. 16. The problem is, their superbout could be affected by a Mayweather-McGregor hangover.
It may have take a bit too long to come to fruition, but Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is finally set to face off against Gennady “GGG” Golovkin in September.
Oscar De La Hoya is already looking for more favorable terms for Saul “Canelo” Alvarez against Gennady Golovkin due to the latter’s poor pay-per-view numbers.
Gennady Golovkin's 23-fight knockout streak came to an end; Daniel Jacobs thought he was robbed by the judges; and Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez suffered a devastating upset.
Triple-G is ready and willing to face WBO champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. But unless he’s completely focused on the ferocious Daniel Jacobs at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night, he could squander what would be a historic payday.
And no, Canelo Álvarez is still not in the equation.
Boxing might finally deliver on a big promise in a timely manner.
