The combination of styles has boxing fans salivating over what will happen in the same ring where Mayweather stopped McGregor three weeks ago. Still, it promises to be a can't miss fight that brings back memories of the great middleweights of the 1980's.
"Canelo right now is ready for 160 [pounds]". We're both ready for a big fight. But it was the first time since 2008 that GGG has failed to knock out an opponent.

Both of these guys can see a pot of gold there. Alvarez is already an established superstar, arguably the most popular athlete in Mexico.

"But I have more experience now, I'm more complete as a fighter, more confident in the ring". For Golovkin, the fight is the culmination of a long battle to establish himself as the top middleweight in the world.
