HBO Boxing: Canelo vs. Golovkin Results

Forget Canelo & GGG, Billy Joe Saunders Is The Middleweight With The Most On The Line This Weekend Billy Joe Saunders' son gets involved at weigh-ins, punches dad's opponent in the balls

Golovkin has won 33 of his 37 fights by way of stoppage. Right now I feel great.

Billy Joe Saunders's second defense of his World Boxing Organization belt against Willie Monroe Jr in London will not attract the same attention or glamor but is nevertheless significant since the winner is likely to face the victor of Golovkin-Alvarez clash, which takes place a few hours later in Las Vegas. "I think it will be a very close fight but Canelo looks like he has overdone it in training, he looked worn out in training and he's overdone it, ' said Saunders, from Hertfordshire, northwest of London".

Gennady Golovkin fights Canelo Alvarez on Saturday night in what many believe will be the best boxing match of the year.

Canelo Alvarez, left, and Gennady Golovkin pose during a weigh-in Friday, Sept. 15, 2017, in Las Vegas. He's the most unsafe fighter I've faced. "I think we have an opportunity to bring back those glory days, to bring back the business of boxing". There's plenty at stake going into Saturday's bout, the least of which isn't the crown for arguably the best active boxer on the planet.

"When I was born, all of the fear had already been given out", he said through a translator, per The Guardian's Bryan Armen Graham. In the U.S., he fought in New York, California and CT so far. "These are the fights that define your career", said Oscar De La Hoya, who promotes Alvarez.

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

Unlike that fight, this one features two of the very best in the sport.

This will be the 10th time that Alvarez has boxed in Las Vegas, where he has been built into the star to replace Mayweather.

Alvarez's only defeat came in 2013 against Floyd Mayweather, who was too fast and smart for him.

A fighter who holds the drawing power, mass appeal and resume of Alvarez usually doesn't have much to prove.

Canelo on the other hand shares some of his adversary's strengths, including power, chin and being able to persevere through some rough patches in his fights. I learned a lot from that fight. Mayweather fought at 154 lbs, but Canelo is now a big middleweight, and his heft might balloon to 180 plus come fight night with GGG.
