How Canelo-GGG could unfold

Posted September 14, 2017

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. Las Vegas sports books appear to be leaning towards the second group, as they have pegged GGG as the favorite.

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin faced off for the final time before their eagerly anticipated showdown in Las Vegas this Saturday night. My last opponent, Avtandil Khurtsidze got arrested and the fight was cancelled. Canelo-GGG is a reminder of how good the sport can be - how it used to be - when one simple philosophy matters most: the best fighting the best.

Canelo, who will be roared on by thousands of fellow Mexicans in the T-Mobile Arena, says: 'It is very possible that we will have one or two more fights if this one is a great fight.

Indian troops on Monday killed two more Kashmiri youth in Srinagar , the capital of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir valley. According to Kashmir Media Service, the martyred youth have been identified as Sayar Ahmad Wani and Dawood Illahi Khan.

Styles make fights, and we can expect to see a true search and destroy battle between counterpuncher Saul Alvarez and hunter Gennady Golovkin. He also has become a more complete boxer in his last four fights.

Over the past year, a strong contingent of boxing fans and pundits feel the gap separating Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) and Canelo (49-1-1, 34 KOs) has narrowed. Facing Mayweather highlighted that Canelo struggles to land effectively against fast footed fighters who flit in and out of range, which Golovkin is certainly not. How has GGG gotten old when he hasn't taken any damage?

Golovkin doesn't have the tools that Canelo has, all he can do is go forward and try to break you down by imposing his will on you. Golovkin, 35, is the older fighter between the two middleweights, but 27-year-old Alvarez has the edge in experience.

Whether you believe Triple G or Alvarez will win, lose or draw on Saturday night, they both have put themselves in a position in which everyone will agree that come Sunday morning there will be no haters or cheerleaders, only people talking about an exciting matchup and giving both the proper respect due.
