Although many people went wild for the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, the real boxing purists have been looking forward to the bout between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin for a long time. This has been a fight that has been years in the making, one that the whole world wanted to see and finally this weekend we get the chance to see these two great boxers in the ring together.
Pound for pound there is no one better than these two boxers, they are at the top of the class and this fight is a real genuine 50/50 right that could go either way.
Golovkin, known to his fans as simply GGG, has an unbeaten professional record, with 37 wins and an impressive 33 of those coming by knockout. Alvarez has been beaten before, but that came against the formidable Floyd Mayweather so he lost nothing in defeat there. His record currently stands at 49-1-1, with 34 of those victories coming by knockout showing just like Golovkin, he has the power to knock an opponent to the floor.
Many boxing fans have been waiting for years to see this fight, with a steady build up before finally things came to life and the fight became a reality earlier in 2017. With both boxers in their prime, although Golovkin is now 35, this should be a fight for the ages and one that the whole world watches. Whoever wins the fight will surely look to Billy Joe Saunders next, who is the only other belt holder in the division. That means the winner of the bout would likely become the first person to hold all four major belts in the middleweight division since 2005.
Golovkin comes into the fight as favourite, despite being the older man, although, with the odds so close, boxing fans from around the world all have an opinion on who is going to win the fight.
