The Final Canelo Alvarez/Gennady Golovkin Faceoff Ahead Of Saturday's Showdown

14 September 2017

I'm just more focused. And the flawless fight for me. Thankfully, Canelo-Golovkin is almost upon us, and the fight is at least happening within the acceptable window of peak viability. He'll need to bring the power that has gotten him 34 knockouts against Golovkin, a former amateur star from Kazakhstan now living in Los Angeles who has knocked out 33 opponents in winning all 37 of his pro fights.

Alvarez is already a superstar in his native Mexico, the most celebrated boxer in a boxing-mad country.

Oscar De La Hoya, who promotes Alvarez, made no secret of his disdain for the Mayweather-McGregor fight, sending out an obscene tweet just before the event, claiming both were disrespecting boxing. The fight is more important to him. It simply doesn't come into it, they can both handle the pressure. "I want you to all enjoy it like I'm going to enjoy it".

As I already said, strength wins this one. Well, that did not happen as both fighters showed too much respect for each other's power.

One dead, others wounded in Spokane-area school shooting
A reporter for The Spokesman-Review said students he talked to described the shooter as a "quiet" sophomore they didn't know well. The Spokane Sheriff's Office is expected to provide more information at a news conference sometime on Wednesday afternoon.

Saunders, 28, makes the second defence of his WBO middleweight title against Willie Monroe Jr in London on Saturday night and is Sky Bet's 4/11 favourite to win the fight, with Monroe Jr 9/4 and the draw 28/1.

Last month's bout between Floyd "Money" Mayweather and Conor "Notorious" McGregor was billed as "the fight of the century", but for real boxing fans that title felt better reserved for the September 16 showdown between middleweight superstars Canelo Alvarez and Gennedy "Triple G" Golovkin.

I wrote at the time this was confirmed, this is a fight of the decade. Callum Smith is the only top British one I haven't worked with. Alvarez, whose only loss was at the hands of Floyd Mayweather Jr., is coming off a lopsided win over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. last month in Las Vegas. I've worked hard for all the opportunities I've been given so I've got a real chance of getting myself into that position. "We've seen the best of him and I think people actually know - and this is a big factor - he is just human".
