HBO Boxing: Canelo vs. Golovkin Results

(Of course, he would say that-he's promoting his fighter.) Alvarez's brand image as a boxer, De La Hoya says, is about seriousness: he respects the sport; values hard work and training; he isn't a moneyed playboy. 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.

But if you want what's going to be the best fight of the year, that's probably happening Saturday night when Canelo Alavarez fights Gennady Golovkin - aka GGG. Utilizing a snapping jab and brutal overhand right, Golovkin dishes out as much damage with his precise combinations as he does with his aggression as an in-fighter.

You don't carry an 89 percent KO rate without employing an aggressive style in the ring. It's the fight boxing fans have been waiting for nearly as long.

Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) is a crusher, boasting the kind of fearsome power that has led him to a so-far undefeated career with a staggering 89 percent knockout rate.

"I am going to give the fans a special fight - a real fight. Boxing needs this fight and I'm glad I was able to make it". This truly is a boxing superfight, with Golovkin the favorite.

Hurricane Irma pounds Southwest Florida with 110 miles per hour winds
Right now the ferocious storm is drawing the ocean away from the coast and feeding the storm surge into other areas. The hurricane weakened to a tropical storm Monday morning as it moved north towards Georgia.

Golovkin, meanwhile, came back from a victory past year over then-welterweight champion Kell Brook with a puffy face.

Then, Golovkin escaped Madison Square Garden in March with a narrow victory by unanimous decision over a bigger, faster man, Daniel Jacobs, who also landed clean shots and ended Golovkin's 23-fight knockout streak.

The fight will be on HBO if you're willing to shell out the $80, with both TV and streaming options. 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. "I am the boss, not Canelo". The 28-year-old English boxer won the WBO belt from Ireland's Andy Lee in December 2015 but due to injuries and postponements has only fought once since, an unimpressive points win over Artur Akavov at a leisure center in Scotland in December.

In the weeks leading up to Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather, you probably read the word "spectacle" more times than you had previously in your entire life.
