Golovkin and Canelo arrive in Las Vegas

Now it's time for the real fight of the century

Now it's time for the real fight of the century

Forget the procession that was Mayweather vs McGregor - this could be the most thrilling middleweight contest in decades.

Now comes the real fight - and what a fight it will be.

Golovkin promised his signature "big drama show" Saturday night, but many feel 26-year-old Canelo will provide his toughest test to date. So boxing observers and analysts can just hypothesize how the fight would unfold based on the protagonists' recent fights and training videos.

He is a few years older than Canelo but I don't agree that he is ageing yet.

Styles really do make fights, and these are two fighters with explosive styles.

Let's not forget that Jacobs was a world champion with 29 knockouts from 32 wins.

Canelo is promoted by Oscar De La Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions and is the biggest star in all of Mexican boxing. My last opponent, Avtandil Khurtsidze got arrested and the fight was cancelled. The fans were hungry for this and we are giving them what they want.

It should be money well spent.

"I can assure you that I will do my part and I will do my best to give you all a lovely fight".

Saul Alvarez is flying the flag for Mexico, a country that loves their boxing. He does beer commercials with Sylvester Stallone and has been a steady pay-per-view draw, with his 2013 loss to Mayweather checking in as the fourth-most watched pay-per-view of all time.

Their last two fights have made me resolutely believe it is a Canelo victory. It's a huge risk for both, but the rewards should be good, too, with purses north of $10 million. GGG is now the unified WBA, WBC, IBF and IBO middleweight champion while Canelo holds the WBO middleweight belt.

"And with a couple more days to go towards the fight, we are very excited to bring this fight to the public for them to enjoy". It's the best against the best in their prime in a fight fans have been clamouring to see.

When did the Miss America pageant turn into a Nasty Woman protest?
Congratulations to Cara Mund of North Dakota! "Honestly? It was to get to Miss America and make it past the Top 10", Mund said. The victor of last night's pageant was Miss North Dakota Cara Hund, and Miss Alabama Jessica Procter made the Top 7.
