Alvarez, Golovkin meet in fight for the middle-ages

Alvarez, Golovkin meet in fight for the middle-ages

Just note that the fight will only be available through your cable box and not through HBO Go or HBO Now. If Alvarez wins, that might not be until next year, depending on when he's going to fight, but certainly as far as Golovkin's concerned, that'll be done very quickly.

"It's the only way the victor of the Golovkin-Canelo fight can unify the titles, and that's the logical fight", Warren said, via BBC. Canelo told BoxNation that he is ready to fight and will grab the Kazakh middleweight kings WBC, WBA, IBF and IBO world titles.

There were whispers the Mexican, who is making the jump up from super-welterweight, had overtrained as he started camp a lot earlier than he normally does and could have actually come in above the 160lb limit.

They are two tough men, punishing punchers, brilliant boxers and very evenly matched.

If you want a stadium-style experience without flying to Las Vegas, head to a local theater.

The school describes itself as created to serve "emotionally disturbed" students in grades 6-12. Police Chief Kimberley Jacobs said the suspect was a male, but was uncertain of his age.


Golovkin, the unbeaten knockout puncher from Kazakhstan, will defend his middleweight titles against Alvarez, Mexico's biggest boxing star. "It has all the ingredients to be one of the best fights ever". Being slightly bigger than Canelo would only enhance this strength of his when he has the feared Mexican backing up. Some in boxing thought it showed some vulnerability or suggested that at the age of 35 Triple G is getting a bit old.

Canelo on the other hand shares some of his adversary's strengths, including power, chin and being able to persevere through some rough patches in his fights.

Below is a look at the entire fight card, as well as the weight of each boxer. While not the best at throwing combinations, Alvarez is more measured in his approach and every shot is with a certain degree of impact.

Manager Frank Warren has already expressed his desire to align the winners of the two respective middleweight world championship fights in December this year. Rivera had already been training for a fight next week, and the victor will get a shot at the title now held by Gary Russell Jr.

Most observers will continue favoring GGG until someone finally beats him. "I think the second half will be much crazier, like a street fight". I think maybe a decision, maybe a short fight - this is boxing.
