Alvarez, Golovkin seek their places in boxing history

Will Saturday night's matchup between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin match last month's fight on the "spectacle scale"?

- Golovkin is fighting in Las Vegas for the very first time despite having 10 previous bouts as a pro in the United States. "When you use that punch, you leave yourself open, which I'm sure (Golovkin) will be looking for". There's plenty at stake going into Saturday's bout, the least of which isn't the crown for arguably the best active boxer on the planet.

Canelo has been improving a lot since his defeat to Mayweather, and the weight difference between the two fighters might be a big obstacle to a rematch.

Tonight at T-Mobile Arena, I'm expecting Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 knockouts) to emerge with a split-decision victory over three-belt middleweight champion Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs).

De La Hoya says Alvarez has the potential to "break records in years to come". Utilizing a snapping jab and brutal overhand right, Golovkin dishes out as much damage with his precise combinations as he does with his aggression as an in-fighter.

You don't have to have cable to stream the fight. "I think we have an opportunity to bring back those glory days, to bring back the business of boxing".

He's lived through the golden eras of Joe Louis and Sugar Ray Robinson, Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier, Sugar Ray Leonard and Roberto Duran, and he's still actively promoting fights in Northern California. He's sought out the best fights and his top competitors have said thanks but no thanks.

In his most recent fight against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., Alvarez just about made the sport look easy, comfortably controlling the fight for all 12 rounds en-route to a resounding unanimous-decision victory. "Boxing needs this fight and I'm glad I was able to make it".

"This is my biggest fight", he said. "After I have my hand raised in victory, I will be one fight away from realizing my dream of winning a world championship". Triple G came to the U.S.in 2011 to pursue bigger fights, and has collected the major middleweight titles while trying to get Alvarez into the ring. "If Bill comes through he will fight the victor of Canelo-Golovkin", said Warren.
