Golovkin comes to the ring with the WBA, WBC and IBF world middleweight titles, although Canelo has said he will not accept the WBC belt.

Saul Canelo Alvarez weighed and Gennady Golovkin weighed in bang on the weight limit of 160lbs in front of 9,000 fans. "I am ready to reign at the top of the middleweight division for a long time", Canelo told BoxNation.

Golovkin has a spotless 37-win professional record, 33 of which were obtained by knock-outs.

"He is the most unsafe opponent of my career, but I'm ready for him and what's next to come", said the former WBC and WBA super welterweight champion. "They're going to hit each other and give fans the kind of fight they want and expect".


Founder of MyMMANews.com - After writing for Ultimate MMA magazine and serving as the editor for U.S. Combat Sports, both of which went on hiatus, I made a decision to venture out on my own and enlist a staff of writers and photographers that could help me achieve my goal of telling stories that would otherwise go untold.

The night Alvarez first became a world champions will be one he remembers for the rest of his life.

"I think boxing is at a place right now where we're starting to feel and see the momentum shifting".

Canelo Alvarez has been one of the biggest names in boxing for a long, long time, and on Saturday he'll be fighting one just about as big in Gennady Golovkin on HBO pay-per-view.


There's plenty for fight fans to ponder in the buildup to this bout. He first started boxing at a gym in Maikuduk, Karaganda, Kazakhstan.

Monroe, from NY, refused to be drawn into trash talk but is hoping Golovkin beats Alvarez so he can have a re-match. "Boxing needs this fight and I'm glad I was able to make it". Mayweather fought at 154 lbs, but Canelo is now a big middleweight, and his heft might balloon to 180 plus come fight night with GGG.

Both fighters while similar in their approach and styles have very different strengths and attributes.

Golovkin is taller and has a three inch reach advantage, which could be crucial if the fight is fought at mid range where he tends to like to do a lot of his best work in the past.
