15 September, 2018, 16:26
To wake up Sunday morning as the 160-pound champion, though, he'll have to take some chances he didn't in his first fight with Golovkin a year ago. He can only talk about the doping that got him suspended for six months by Nevada boxing authorities, but he can do something in the ring to alter the perception that his style is too conservative.
Here, we take a closer look at everything you need to know about how to order and watch Canelo vs GGG 2, not to mention a stacked three-fight undercard. A more stationary Alvarez, of course, would make him easier to hit, but Alvarez is more comfortable as a boxer and counter puncher and used those skills to his advantage in the first fight.
"I'm pretty sure that if Canelo was British, he would have had a minimum of a two-year ban".
Canelo has contended that the failed drugs test was due to contaminated meat he ingested by accident in his home country of Mexico.
The truth will be revealed tomorrow night where it can be done so best, ultimately.
The official purses were confirmed to ESPN by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, although both fighters are expected to make upwards of tens of millions more after pay-per-view sales.
"It's a real fight", Golovkin said this week.
Gennady Golovkin and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez faced off for the final time ahead of their eagerly awaited rematch here Friday, September 14, as they comfortably made the weight for their middleweight grudge match.
Eventually, to the delight of fight fans around the world, the two parties came together for a third time on a deal that will see the duo go to war for the WBA and WBC middleweight world titles, nearly a year to the day since their first meeting. Golovkin is 38-0-1 with 33 knockouts.
Armed with an iron chin, he will be hoping to add Canelo's name to the list of fighters he has felled inside the distance by inflicting the first knockout defeat of his rival's career.
