Brook Backs Canelo: I Think Golovkin's Days Are Numbered!

At 35, Golovkin is eight years the senior of Canelo, but the Kazakh insists he is feeling as good as ever and believes he can continue to box into his fifth decade.

Anticipation was at a fever pitch. "But that's what I've prepared for - to knock him out".

The fight will be available to watch on HBO Pay-Per-View in high definition for $79.99 (a slight bargain compared to the $99.95 price tag for the Mayweather McGregor matchup). To my mind, this could be the worst scenario for the Alvarez-Golovkin fight as both of them could resort to "fencing" rather than boxing, that can result in a close or lopsided decision.

Alvarez, shockingly, said that fighting the champion known as "GGG" will be a bigger showdown than his experience against Mayweather. He's in a great mood, I don't know if it is because the baby is here or that he finally has got the fight he has wanted.

"I'm going to do my part to make it memorable so I can go down in history as one of the best fighters", Alvarez said.

So what scenario will it be this weekend: Alvarez or Golovkin getting rattled by their opponent's punching power; both showing respect for each other's punching power; or both showing too much respect?

Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) presents a different skill set than Mayweather's. Before his Jacobs fight, Golovkin stopped 21 of his 23 opponents before the 10th round dating back to 2008.

The fight has split the boxing world.

It's hard to say, but I am leaning towards Canelo. "I'm expecting him to come forward and come for the knockout. That's what I've been training for, is to beat the best I've ever faced in my career".

Boxing is a sport that when you compliment a guy, you are considered a cheerleader; and if you pick against a guy, you are a hater.
