Canelo Alvarez has been one of the biggest names in boxing for a long, long time, and on Saturday he’ll be fighting one just about as big in Gennady Golovkin on HBO pay-per-view. Golovkin and Alvarez comprise the actual best boxing match of 2017, even if the earlier bout between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor exceeded expectations. Unlike that fight, this one features two of the very best in the sport. It will begin, live on PPV at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday. The card comes from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Live streaming of the bout can be had online if purchased directly from the site set up for the bout, CaneloGGG.com.
“Canelo” Alvarez against Gennady “GGG” Golovkin is being billed as the “real” fight, a legitimate antidote to the circus of Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor last month. Saturday’s battle in Las Vegas features two of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world in a showdown that promises action aplenty, with both men typically adopting a high-intensity, aggressive style. Here is the relevant information and what to look out for on fight night.
Alvarez is 49-1-1 with 34 knockouts to his name, his lone loss coming to Mayweather in 2013, when he was still relatively inexperienced. He’s earned some nice wins since then, including a huge win over Miguel Cotto in 2015 and a win over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in his last outing. That said, many have criticized him for picking his fights carefully following his loss to Mayweather. Of course, that could have something to do with the fact that prior to that fight, he’d fought in some very risky bouts as his star grew.
