    Now that the circus that was Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor is over, and not the farce everybody thought it would be, the world can focus on what should be the most anticipated fight of the year: Gennady Golovkin v Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.

    GGG is placing his WBA (Super), IBF, WBC, IBO titles against Canelo’s ring and lineal titles in a winner-take-all war on September 16, at the same venue for Mayweather v McGregor – T-Mobile Arena.

    Golovkin has an undefeated record of 37-0 (33 KOs), while Canelo’s record is 49-1-1 (35 KOs), meaning this is set to be an epic. Both men are also coming off decision wins and will be looking for the KO to claim the title of the world’s best middleweight.

    This bout already sold out, well before the Mayweather vs McGregor did, as this will be a real fight in the ring, not just some hyped-up money fight by two loud-mouth athletes. These two are men of few words – although neither have a great grasp of English – so they let their fists do the talking.

    Some are concerned that Golovkin has lost his knockout power, failing to finish Daniel Jacobs in his last fight, but he will be back bigger and better for Canelo.

      Thanks BigJ, I’m actually quite shocked and pretty happy that my article was published. Now that I have this one Ill most likely do a prediction and review article of the fight, really looking forward to doing this now. I agree that GGG will get the win as he is more of a natural middleweight the Canelo, but I cant wait for the fight. Its going to be great to watch it at home on Sunday, what about yourself where will you watch the fight??

      Mate I’m just going to the local establishment down the road to warch it for free, get myself a free fight poster and laugh at the ladies in the bar with loose ethics. But im a bit surprised that such as huge fight has not gotten more coverage. This sort of fight has not hsppened since Hopkins v Taylor in 2005 if im correct

      Indeed you are correct Hopkins v Taylor was in July 2005 with Taylor, Taylor was the only man to defeat Hopkins twice. It was the two best fights of that year. Taylor also defeated Sam Soliman for the IBF middleweight title in 2014.
