Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin will try to settle their rivalry once and for all on Saturday night, when they return to the site of their first two clashes.
In September 2017, Canelo and “GGG” battled to a controversial split draw at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, with many observers believing that Golovkin had been robbed of a win. A year later, at the same venue, Canelo won a majority decision against the Kazakhs in another disputed decision, the fight that ended up being an instant classic anyway.
Both fighters hope the result of their main event this weekend leaves no room for discussion as Canelo (57-2-2, 39 knockouts) looks set to maintain his super-middleweight champion status.
The Mexican, 32, will enter the bout after only his second loss as a professional, a decision loss to light-heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol in May, while Golovkin (42-1-1, 37 KOs) last fought in April, Ryota Murata. retired to unify three middleweight titles just days before turning 40.
