Is Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin the most anticipated fight in years?

Oscar De La Hoya: 'We have an opportunity to bring back glory days' of boxing

With 33 of his 37 victories coming by way of stoppage, Golovkin holds the highest knockout percentage (89.8) in middleweight championship history. Right now I feel great.

The undefeated Golovkin, whose World Boxing Council, World Boxing Association and International Boxing Federation titles will be on the line, said he is expecting the toughest fight of his career against a boxer six years his junior.

But if you want what's going to be the best fight of the year, that's probably happening Saturday night when Canelo Alavarez fights Gennady Golovkin - aka GGG. Triple G is expected to be a classic "matador versus bull" style pairing, where the sharp-shooting counter puncher (Alvarez) attempts to stave-off the relentless aggressor (Golovkin) throughout the scheduled twelve round fight. "I don't back down", Alvarez said. 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. You can order it starting now so it's ready for fight-time. “I am very excited to be finally fighting in Las Vegas, but I am more excited that it is against Canelo. Just note that the fight will only be available through your cable box and not through HBO Go or HBO Now.

GGG comes into Saturday's meeting at the T-Mobile Arena boasting an unbeaten record, while the only defeat of Canelo's professional career came against Mayweather.

India has also chose to grant citizenship to Buddhist and Hindu refugees from erstwhile East Pakistan (now Bangladesh). The government's draft affidavit says there is no "violation of fundamental rights of the petitioner" in this case.

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.

Canelo on the other hand shares some of his adversary's strengths, including power, chin and being able to persevere through some rough patches in his fights.

Because of the style match-up, many experts and fight scribes believe both fighters strengths can and will inevitably be exploited by their respective counterpart's other words, both men are seemingly made for each other in the ring.

All four PPV fights have title implications, though only the last two are 12-round bouts. "I wish it was an hour to the fight instead of having to wait until tomorrow".
