Gennady Golovkin has amusing comment about his 'GGG' alter ego

14 September, 2017, 01:14 | Author: Glenda Knight
  • Canelo Alvarez left and Gennady Golovkin meet Saturday night in a middleweight title clash as highly anticipated by boxing purists

"This fight with Canelo is important for boxing", said Golovkin.

The day before the bout, the chances are WBO Middleweight World Champion Billy Joe Saunders, from Hatfield, UK, will successfully defend his belt against Willie Monroe Jr, thus making him the only thing that stands between the victor of Canelo v GGG and the title of undisputed middleweight champion of the world.

But maybe that is not such a surprise when you consider that Alvarez turned pro at just 15-years-old after running out of amateur opponents while still just a boy. The fight with Mayweather in 2013 was a massive affair and since then, despite losing, he has actually become an even bigger star.

There was a time when it didn't seem that the fight would happen. The fight can go down a number a ways and both fighters will have to bring their absolute best to beat the other. "I want you to all enjoy it like I'm going to enjoy it".

You would have to back Billy Joe to win that with his superior ability.

Alvarez and Golovkin face off for the WBA, WBC and IBF middleweight titles.

Fight of the Year, much too close to call, as two knockout kings fail to knock each other out.

The middleweights are always an exciting division but the fights that are on this weekend shows just how great the weight category is right now.

An impressive win could land him a shot at the victor of Canelo v GGG who meet in Las Vegas a few hours after his showdown with American Monroe Jr. In fact, one can argue that the delay has only made it feel like a bigger event, allowing Alvarez's elite skill set at age 27 to catch up with his enormous popularity. 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.

In March of this year, in what was his most recent fight, Golovkin endured his toughest test to date against a spirited Daniel Jacobs, and although GGG was able to hurt his opponent, knocking him to the canvas in Round 4, he was forced to go the full 12 rounds for the first time in his career, settling for a unanimous decision victory on that occasion. But at 35, it appears that Alvarez has closed the gap while pushing the fight off and more experts and current fighters than ever before believe Canelo might have the body attack and accurate counter shots to disarm the Kazakh slugger and win a decision.
