Golovkin: This is my fight, I am the boss

Plus, the adulation of fans and the respect of the boxing press. There appears to be very little consideration for Alvarez's ability to leave men out cold and far too much emphasis on Golovkin's stoppage wins; Golovkin has been tremendously disrespectful in some fights, dismissive of the men in front of him and bored. "He can be what Ali was, what Mike Tyson was, what Oscar was". This is the fight boxing has always been calling for. In recent years we have not had a fight so finely balanced.

It's not a totally unfamiliar place for Alvarez.

Everyone that steps inside the ring feels Golovkin's power.

The skill and power of both fighters will be truly put to the test and it is a bout that many believe will go the distance.

"He's 100 per cent of a different fighter than the fighter that faced Mayweather", the trainer said.

There is a picture of Alvarez on one knee at Amir Khan's side last summer when a flawless right cross dropped poor Amir for a lengthy count.

Saturday represents his toughest challenge since then.

Golovkin is coming in 37-0 with 33 wins by knockout, whereas Alvarez is 49-1-1 with 34 wins by KO. He has an impressive pedigree, an extensive amateur background and perhaps the best jab in boxing.

The president's remarks aboard Air Force One late Thursday addressed a meeting he had a day earlier with Sen. We are a Nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal.

"He hit Cotto with everything that could hit him with and never hurt Cotto". Canelo, although a more defensive player, can also pack a powerful punch and could also knock his component out. The former Olympic silver medalist from Kazakhstan and Mexico's biggest boxing star meet Saturday night in a 160-pound battle that has been years in the making.

De La Hoya's era included champions such as Felix Trinidad and Hopkins, who's a partner in Golden Boy. As the fight goes on they take their toll. By comparison, Saturday's bout took two years and plenty of public hand-wringing to make.

"In Canelo v Golovkin we have a genuine 50-50 matchup that has the makings to go down as one of the best fights in modern history".

Alvarez outpointed Cotto in May 2015 in a popular pay-per-view fight to win the lineal middleweight title before vacating. "But in terms of magnitude, in terms of PR, in terms of attention that it's receiving, in terms of people that will be watching, yeah, this has to be the biggest".

Isco signs new Real Madrid contract
Now Real Madrid look to become the first team to win three straight European Cups since Bayern Munich did so from 1974 to 1976. But we have to be ambitious and the truth is the team always wants more.

And Brook believes now is the best time for Canelo to face Golovkin as based on his last two performances, he showed that he was human and can be beaten.

Canelo plans to exploit what he perceives to be Golovkin's weaknesses to provide a fight that will rank as one of the best of all time. Though they are both among the greatest in the sport, they aren't the arrogant showmen that some are.

In Golovkin fights there are those bad moments when his opponents can be heard suffering, letting out little screams as the Kazak maestro drills in short punches to the body and sickening hooks to the jaw. It won't erase the Mayweather loss, but it could supersede it in a sense. Saturday night may serve that goal.
