The pair meet to battle it out for Golovkin’s four middleweight world titles on September 16, in a fight which has finally emerged from the shadow of Floyd Mayweather’s bout with Conor McGregor and has had many proclaiming it the most intriguing fight of the year.
It pits the heavy-punching, ever-aggressive Kazakh who has put family tragedy behind him to conquer his division against a flame-haired Mexican who used to sell ice cream for his family business before a remarkable rise through the boxing ranks.
Canelo vs. GGG is a fight two years in the making. Canelo won the WBC middleweight title from Miguel Cotto back in Nov. 2015, and then-promoter Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions, were reluctant to make the fight with Triple G.
Canelo’s camp wanted more time for Alvarez to grow into being a true 160-pound fighter, but the whispers in boxing was De La Hoya didn’t want his golden goose to be in any potential danger of losing a fight.
Fans grew impatient, but the wrongs were righted May ’16, when Canelo knocked out Amir Khan and brought Golovkin into the ring. Canelo said he was ready to fight. De La Hoya puffed out his chest and said he would talk with Golovkin’s manager/advisor Tom Loeffler, famously telling him to have his phone ready.
