One of the biggest fights of the year takes place on Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in the mecca of boxing, Las Vegas.Gennady Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs), the gentle-faced assassin, will take on Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs), one of boxing’s elite counterpunchers and most popular figures. The two fighters will be battling for distinction as the lineal middleweight champion.
While Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor brought massive global attention to boxing, this bout will have a smaller audience but will undoubtedly be a better product.The undefeated Golovkin boasts near-mythical power, stopping 22 opponents in a row before he went to the cards for the first time in nearly nine years against Daniel Jacobs back in March.
Alvarez has defeated all of his opponents but two—losing to Mayweather, drawing against Jorge Juarez in only his fifth professional bout—and is capable of both overpowering and outfoxing his opposition, whether it’s the lightning-fast Amir Khan or the hard-hitting Miguel Cotto.
“Golovkin is known for his power and for finishing his opponents fast. But Canelo has shown that he can withstand strong battles. He has a tough chin and his punches are powerful enough to penetrate GGG’s defense. It’s going to be an intense bout from start to finish.”
Alvarez has a solid knockout rate of 67 percent, but he will have to catch Golovkin flat-footed and off-guard more than a few times to pull off the stoppage. A careful fight strategy might not allow for that. In his last bout against a listless Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., Alvarez never quite forced the issue.
