Golovkin ready to hit the boxing jackpot in Las Vegas

Golovkin ready to hit the boxing jackpot in Las Vegas

Anticipation was at a fever pitch.

The fight will be available to watch on HBO Pay-Per-View in high definition for $79.99 (a slight bargain compared to the $99.95 price tag for the Mayweather McGregor matchup).

Ultimately, Mayweather showed the world he's an all-time great and that Alvarez still had work to do. The Alvarez-Golovkin fight can still end in a lopsided decision if one of the fighters in the later rounds can still land more meaningless punches.

Alvarez, shockingly, said that fighting the champion known as "GGG" will be a bigger showdown than his experience against Mayweather.

BOX OFFICE Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin: What time does the fight start, what TV channel is it on? "I've got through my first 24 fights on skill, now I have the conditioning to produce the very best performances of my career".

Many boxing fans I've talked with told me that it was Canelo ducking GGG, I told them the fight will happen but on Canelo's terms since he is the big draw.

Indeed bookies are backing Gennady Golovkin (37-0-0) to interrupt the rise of the young Mexican's career in their September clash. He's a hard hitter who will stand toe-to-toe and not back down. Pacquiao's main weakness are counter punchers and with Golovkin he is even more limited he doesn't have the speed of the wild punching Filipino fighter, instead he moves slowly forward and applies constant pressure with no defense, he is so predictable. Fans in the United Kingdom can expect Golovkin vs. Alvarez to start around 03:00 BST.

If Golovkin gets to rattle Alvarez with his punching power, however, he can not expect the Mexican to just fold up and be a stationary target because Alvarez has good ring movement and knows how to bob and weave. I prepared myself for the knockout.

Will Gennady "GGG" Golovkin defend his WBC and IBO titles and cement himself as one of the greatest boxers of recent times?

He added: "I am a big middleweight and don't want to give my advantage away, but there is not a super-middleweight that I fear".
