Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin

  • Canelo Alvarez

While those in each fighters' camps have claimed they foresee their guy wearing down the other and dealing the loser his first knockdown - Alvarez has said he's dreamed nightly of such an outcome - the more likely scenario is that neither man yields.

"If he wants to stand toe-to-toe I will not back down".

Saunders' promoter Frank Warren has always been in discussions with the handlers of the 35-year-old Golovkin and had hoped to secure a date with him in Kazakhstan earlier this summer. Everything's good. My family and my team support me.

The fight doesn't quite have the hype of Mayweather-McGregor, but it has a great chance to be the fight of the year. I feel very comfortable. We're going to show all those attributes, all that talent. In the last few years, the sport has generated close to 10 million Pay-Per-Views in only two fights. Golovkin will defend his titles against Alvarez at T-Mobile Arena on September 16 in Las Vegas. In the process, both combatants give fight fans the show they have long anticipated and gives boxing the violent, exciting boost in the arm many have been wanting for so long. "The energy will be off the charts", added GGG.

"Let me repeat - this is a fight boxing can be proud of".

Chinese bitcoin exchange announces end to trading
The cost of the bitcoin declined to 26,400 Yuan (almost to $4,029) on BTC China this week compared to 32,500 Yuan of last week. Levitt said he would avoid investing directly in bitcoin due to its wild price fluctuations that are "hard to understand".


Tonight, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin will trade shots for the unified WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, The Ring magazine, and lineal middleweight championship of the world, live from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Alvarez, whose only loss was at the hands of Floyd Mayweather Jr., is coming off a lopsided win over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Trainer Abel Sanchez says: 'Gennady is smiling a lot not only for the birth but also because he finally has this big fight and that frustration is over'. As such, fans may be wondering if Canelo vs. GGG is on Showtime on Saturday night.

Only the August 26 PPV that was headlined by Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor is expected to outsell Saturday's PPV this year.

That said, Golovkin's gift will make things hard for Alvarez, as he can ruin a fight strategy by hurting his opponents early with one of the sharpest jabs in the business. But when money talks everybody listens.
