Best bets for GGG-Canelo fight

GGG vs. Canelo

"GGG" and "Canelo" have seized the attention of the boxing world with this fight. In fact, this will be Golovkin's first fight in Las Vegas.

Australians looking to tune into the big fight are a bit better off, with the undercard fights set to begin around 10:00 AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time).

World Boxing Association Middleweight Super Champion Gennady Golovkin and challenger Saul Alvarez arrived at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, where they will stay this week for Saturday's grand fight at the T-Mobile Arena.

Golovkin's aggressive pressure fighting is the polar opposite of the only person to defeat Canelo professionally: Floyd Mayweather.

Possessing impeccable records and incredible knockout power, both fighters have also promised a "Mexican-style" drama show, having indicated that their intentions are exclusively focused on stopping their opponent, going as far as guaranteeing that this fight will not go the distance. More potential cracks appeared in GGG's recent clash with Sheffield-born welterweight Kell Brook, where his notoriously front foot heavy stance left him susceptible to taking big flashy uppercuts to the chin - which are somewhat of a speciality of Canelo. In Canelo's last bout we saw him hitting the heavy bag for 12 rounds in Julio Ceasar Chavez, and before that he was getting out-hustled by the smaller Amir Khan until he positioned himself to land a thunderous right hand to the chin of Khan. "But most importantly he is a great dad". The only reason GGG looked so scary is because fighters feared him, Canelo will not fear him and bully him. How has GGG gotten old when he hasn't taken any damage?

Golovkin, the unbeaten knockout puncher from Kazakhstan, will defend his middleweight titles against Alvarez, Mexico's biggest boxing star.

Well, now you can tell us what you think, not just who wins but how?

Billy Joe Saunders v Willie Munroe Jr is on the same night in London so I'll be interested in seeing that fight as well, with the only other middleweight belt on the line - the WBO.
