Golovkin (37-0, 33 knockouts) has been established as a 2-1 favorite over Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 knockouts) in a bout that was several years in the making.

Title-holder GGG, a more natural middleweight, was always expected to come in at the limit, but Canelo - who has fought at welterweight in the past - has matched his rival pound for pound.

Fans want to see more fight in their fights.especially when it comes with a price tag of $70 in high definition.

“Lets see on Saturday if he is going to knock me out.

Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather gave the world a show a month ago, but for the first time in over two years, a true boxing superfight is coming to the forefront. "I worked hard to become of champion of the world". Right now I feel great. Both he and Golovkin are two of the premier draws in the sport and two of the best pound-for-pound fighters.

Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin highlight Saturday's fight card at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, facing off in the main event of an entire night of boxing. Expect action that will leave fans begging for a rematch from fighters extremely dedicated to their craft.

Zhanar Utesheva of Gennady Golovkin's team says on Facebook that Las Vegas lives by this fight.

2012 U.S. Olympian Diaz, fighting out of South El Monte, California, is the reigning North American Boxing Federation (NABF) and North American Boxing Organization (NABO) featherweight champion.

"I'm so excited about this fight".

Canelo said he took his first defeat as an experience. "I wish it was an hour to the fight instead of having to wait until tomorrow". 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. He executes it better, and from different angles, and it's a very devastating punch.

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.
