I hope the two men deliver as much as the next fan - and it's worth stressing that nearly everyone in the position of writing about the sport is a fan - but such exaggeration helps nobody. In boxing every day is hard and unsafe.
"If he wants to stand toe-to-toe I will not back down".
Saunders promised to be in the best shape of his life when he meets 30-year-old Monroe Jr at the Copper Box Arena, which he has lived up to, but piling on and then stripping weight fast does not do any good for stamina. Everythings good. My family and my team support me. I feel very comfortable. We are going to give a great battle, Golovkin told BoxNation. This fight could have taken place two years ago but de la Hoya, his promoter, wanted to wait and believes that the timing is in his favour.
Alvarez and Golovkin seem to be blessed with chins of granite, which have allowed them to stand in front of previous opponents and fight like they can not be hurt.

Fireworks are expected when the division's two most impressive competitors go toe to toe in Las Vegas, with Golovkin putting his WBC, WBA and IBF titles on the line. "The energy will be off the charts", added GGG.
"It's going to be a great fight because of what is at stake: pride and fighting for your country and boxing fans".
But on Saturday, Sept. 16, T-Mobile Arena in Vegas will host an even bigger match as Canelo vs. GGG is an epic middleweight clash. Alvarez, whose only loss was at the hands of Floyd Mayweather Jr., is coming off a lopsided win over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. I learned a lot in that fight, added the Mexican boxing icon. Triple G came to the U.S.in 2011 to pursue bigger fights, and has collected the major middleweight titles while trying to get Alvarez into the ring. In follow up to the Mayweather vs McGregor showdown, the the "GGG vs Canelo" bout is proclaimed as a "real fight".
A victory over Monroe Jr. likely sets Saunders up for a monster unification bout against the victor of Golovkin vs. Alvarez and the 28-year-old's promoter, Frank Warren, suggests that fight could take place before the end of the year. But when money talks everybody listens.

Indeed bookies are backing Gennady Golovkin (37-0-0) to interrupt the rise of the young Mexican's career in their September clash. Ultimately, Mayweather showed the world he's an all-time great and that Alvarez still had work to do.
