Diaz opening up now. A lot of hooks and straights in retaliation to what Rivera brought forward but his uppercuts all missed.

Diaz might end this during the 10th or 11th round

Round 6 ends with more of the same.

Jo Jo has been countering, but not to the activity level fans want. Although his hands are down most of the time, Diaz isn’t dominating like his bravado indicates.

Rivera doesn’t look like he’ll get the stoppage but he has Diaz questioning everything before he throws it.

Ryan – this is the last undercard fight. I’d say the main event will be on in about 30 minutes.

Yeah normally Golovkin walks around at his fighting weight. But he came in significantly bigger in the shoulders and arms and was very drained – sunken eyes and cheeks and also had abs. That’s the first time he’s ever done that.

My guess is he will be 180lbs tonight after rehydration.

Canelo looked very comfortable and in amazing shape. I don’t know what will happen but I know I cant wait to see it!

Round 3 ends and Diaz has a few red marks under his eyes already. I’ve no doubt the judges have him up on the cards but he will need to change his approach soon. Eating punches and throwing a random hook isn’t the best game plan.

Round 2 ends with Rivera showing he has more to offer than expected. Jo Jo was on the back foot and didn’t counter like we expect – he’s still feeling him out and trying to understand the strategy,

River continuous came in low and would throw a left to the body, then before locking up he would through a left hook to the head and an overhand right after setting up with the jab.

The crowd isn’t sold. They cheered once but have been sedate since then.

Rivera comes out swinging and puts a few power shots on Diaz, this is going to be a harder night than expected.

Round 1 begins!

Jo Jo is a crowd favorite on the west coast of America. He doesn’t get KO’s or decisive wins like GGG but he manages to get the win against everyone he’s faced so far in his career.

Jo Jo Diaz coming out right now but like I said earlier the arena is empty. He has more fans at a LA Fight Club show – for anyone who doesn’t know, LA Fight Club is a club show in downtown LA that Golden Boy Promotions puts on every month with a capacity of about 500 people.

Popular choice, very well could happen.

I personally have been harsh on Canelo in the past but think he takes the win tonight.

Should we run a little wager? maybe a shirt at roots of fight? All I know is GGG looked very drained at the weigh in which has never happened before.

De La Hoya takes the UD. Some of the crowd cheer but when the announcer yells “VIVA MEXICO” the arena lit up!

Everyone is here for one fight and one fight only.

Round ten of ten and De La Hoya is unnecessarily celebrating before the round ends.

Looks like he’s taken the fight on points. He tried his best against Caballero who had the chance to upset him. Diego walks out with a couple of scuffs while Caballero walks away with a black eye

In the third bout we also saw Bohachuk beat Valenzuela without much of a challenge

For those interested in the non-televised fights Esparaza came out and comfortably beat Palacios while Ortiz did the job as expected against Valenzuela.

The under card is building,

I was open about how unimpressed I was with it after Lara withdrew but Diego De La Hoya, Oscar’s nephew is in a really dicey fight right now. He’s fighting someone who could definitely get the upset.

The arena is still empty but both fighters want this win.

Round 9 just started and De La Hoya has a black eye already showing. Caballero landed an accidental headbutt in the 8th which has made Diego hesitant to come forward.

BigJ! Yeah I’m here mate. The arena is actually empty. All the Canelo fans are outside drinking tecate and ignoring the undercard. It’s going to be unreal when it kicks off.

Who do you have tonight?

Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin: Boxing live blog, round-by-round updates

Here we go fight fans!!

It’s the middleweight showdown!! We are live in t mobile arena and the atmosphere is electric!

About 75% canelo fans. It’s a hard fight to call but that’s what we want.

Let me know who you ate picking to win in the comments. Right now I think it’s going to be Canelo by decision. Will GGG prove me wrong?
