Boxing Odds: Gennady Golovkin a -155 favorite vs. Canelo Alvarez 9/13/17

Gennady

Then, there's the fight against Brook before that, which a lot of critics are also using against "Triple G".

The IBF, IBO, WBA, WBC middleweight belts held by Golovkin, as well as the Ring title, which is now held by Canelo, will all be on the line when the two titans clash at the T-Mobile Arena Saturday.

Golovkin puts the other three world sanctioning belts on the line against Mexican star Canelo in their blockbuster fight in Las Vegas just hours later, but an impressive victory would propel the unbeaten Saunders into a compelling fight with the victor.

Late into a decade which has featured alternate good and horrifically bad years in terms of big fights being made (and more importantly delivering), this is a fight that retains a very old school feel.

Alvarez is a veteran of nine contests in Vegas - nine more than Golovkin has undertaken in the United States' fight capital. He's gotten a knockout win in all six of the wins and his one loss was to Floyd Mayweather. Alvarez is the younger fighter by eight years, while 35-year-old Golovkin has a small height advantage over his Mexican counterpart which is negated by the fact that Canelo holds a slight advantage in reach.


The Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin press conference is brought to you by FITE TV and can be streamed below. Look, anything can happen in this fight. GGG has to rely more on his power than his boxing skills as well.

When pressed on his goals in the sport of boxing, the 2004 Olympic silver medalist says, "I want to continue to challenge the best". That's why we prepared, and also to give the fans a attractive fight. I'm just more focused. Well, that did not happen as both fighters showed too much respect for each other's power.

"I'm going to go in there and win the fight". It's rare to get two greats such as Canelo and Golovkin together at the same time so I'm really pleased to be a part of such an exciting era. "Seriously, I don't know, just my training every day, I'm just the same", he said. I prepared myself for the knockout.

"I'd like to wish all the middleweights fighting this weekend the very best of luck!"
