Golovkin vs Canelo prepare for middleweight title fight in Las Vegas

Golovkin vs Canelo: Less than a month after Floyd Mayweather hung up his gloves after beating Conor McGregor in a much more competitive fight than the majority of fight fans anticipated, boxing aficionados are bracing themselves for what they believe is the real megafight: Gennady Golovkin vs Canelo Alvarez.

Golovkin vs Canelo

Known as two of the hardest hitting punchers in the game, these two well-respected boxers will duke it out in Las Vegas on Saturday to determine the best middleweight in the world.

Golovkin vs Canelo

“It is almost just like the old days,” the Guardian’s Kevin Mitchell wrote Wednesday. “So outstanding are they, and so evenly matched are their skills — Golovkin the walk-forward concussive hitter, Alvarez the dangerous counterpuncher — that the 20,000-seater T-Mobile Arena is sold out. ” (Incidentally, the Mayweather-McGregor match couldn’t sell out that same venue in August.)

Odds: As of early this week, the betting site OddsShark.com was giving Golovkin the slight advantage at minus-155. The fight remains close, however. Alvarez is set at plus-125.

If he’s a slight underdog at all, Alvarez isn’t acting like it.

“I’m prepared,” the 27-year-old said Wednesday at the event’s final pre-fight news conference. “I know what it’s gonna be. It’s gonna be a tough [12-round] fight and that’s what I’m ready for. I just want you all to enjoy it like I’m going to enjoy it.”

Alvarez (49-1-1) comes to the fight on a seven-game win streak, last beating Julio Cesar Chevez Jr. via unanimous decision. He has amassed 34 knockout wins in his career.

Golovkin, meanwhile, remains undefeated with a 37-0 record, including 33 knockout wins. The 35-year-old, who currently holds the IBO, IBF, WBA and WBC titles, last beat Daniel Jacobs via unanimous decision. He’ll be putting all his belts on the line Saturday.

Golovkin didn’t have much to say Wednesday. In fact, he didn’t address his opponent much at all. Instead, he just said he was “very happy,” before thanking the fight promoters, his sponsors and HBO.

“I don’t want to talk too much. I respect Canelo’s team,” the Kazakh fighter said. “I know this is the biggest day for us, or not for us, for boxing. This is a huge, history-making fight.”
