Alverez vs GGG more worthwhile than Mayweather-McGregor circus, says Ndou

  • Now it's time for the real fight of the century

Jeff Sherman, assistant sportsbook manager at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, opened the fight with GGG -150 and Canelo +130. In fact, this will be Golovkin's first fight in Las Vegas. Alvarez has fought on a much bigger stage against much bigger opponents.

In unifying the WBA (Super) and IBF world titles against a technically gifted fighter in Lemieux, Golovkin brushed aside a challenger many thought would give him the biggest test of his professional career.

Golovkin's aggressive pressure fighting is the polar opposite of the only person to defeat Canelo professionally: Floyd Mayweather.

His last fight against Julio Cesar Chavez resulted in a comfortable points win but sparked boos from a crowd unimpressed by Chavez's survive-at-all-costs approach.

He added: I'm very motivated to give the fans a handsome fight and answer a lot of questions. The eight year age gap has never been more telling, with boxing experts recently praising the young Mexican for improving massively in every one of his recent performances, while simultaneously noting the cracks appearing to show in Golovkin's energy and effectiveness. Everyone thought he could walk through everyone and most of the fighters he fought were beaten before they were hit.

So what scenario will it be this weekend: Alvarez or Golovkin getting rattled by their opponent's punching power; both showing respect for each other's punching power; or both showing too much respect?

Alvarez has been accused of only taking this fight because he was ridiculed by his Mexico compatriots according to Golovkin's trainer Abel Sanchez. Meanwhile, GGG will try to maintain his distance, as Canelo's optimal range is half a step closer than Golovkin's.

SAUL "CANELO" ALVAREZ knows that nothing short of a convincing victory against Gennady Golovkin can elevate him to the boxing pantheon of all-time greats. Triple G feels the only reason the fight is happening is because he struggled in his last bout against Daniel Jacobs, whom he proudly calls the second best middle weight in the world.

Well, now you can tell us what you think, not just who wins but how?
