Bold Prediction: Canelo Alvarez will beat Gennady Golovkin by late round stoppage

Bold Prediction: Canelo Alvarez will beat Gennady Golovkin by late round stoppage

Watch the official final press conference for Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady "GGG" Golovkin, Wednesday, Sep.

Alvarez and Golovkin face off for the WBA, WBC and IBF middleweight titles.

Without looking past my next fight, just a couple of successful defences of that belt and I could be within touching distance of fighting the victor of this weekend's fight in Vegas. Alvarez has fought on a much bigger stage against much bigger opponents.

Canelo's professional career, which began when he was still only 15, has been blighted by only a solitary loss to pound for pound great Floyd Mayweather in 2013, posting an impressive 34 KOs from his 49 wins.

Both fighters have championship pedigree and have been fighting for the about the same amount of time.

Hingis, Chan capture US Open women's doubles crown
Michael Venus has fallen just short of becoming the first New Zealander to win two grand slam tennis titles in the same year. The milestone comes just 24 hours after she won the mixed doubles title at Flushing Meadows with Britain's Jamie Murray .


Even with his high output, he is one of the most accurate punchers in the sport. You just have to deal with it, but I'm more motivated now than I have ever been in my career.

Reverting to plan B, Lemieux started trying to walk down Golovkin in the middle rounds which lead to a similar lack of success in finding the gaps in Golovkin's defence. It's not too much of a stretch to say it might be the best middleweight clash since Marvelous Marvin Hagler and Tommy Hearns engaged in their classic more than 30 years ago. Skills could favour a Canelo victory with the right game plan but the power lies with Golovkin.

A fighter should fight anyone and I think they would all be as hard a fight as each other but I'd probably rather fight "GGG" because I wouldn't have to go looking for him.

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. 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.

But maybe that is not such a surprise when you consider that Alvarez turned pro at just 15-years-old after running out of amateur opponents while still just a boy.
