Canelo vs. Golovkin: Predictions from LA Times writers

Oscar De La Hoya: 'We have an opportunity to bring back glory days' of boxing

Unlike that fight, this one features two of the very best in the sport. Alvarez (49-1-1) has lost only once, to Floyd Mayweather.

When reviewing both fighters' most recent efforts respectively, Canelo and GGG failed to show a sense of urgency in attempting to put their individual opponent away. "I think we have an opportunity to bring back those glory days, to bring back the business of boxing". "Boxing needs this fight and I'm glad I was able to make it".

Tonight, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin will trade shots for the unified WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, The Ring magazine, and lineal middleweight championship of the world, live from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The undefeated Golovkin, whose World Boxing Council, World Boxing Association and International Boxing Federation titles will be on the line, said he is expecting the toughest fight of his career against a boxer six years his junior. It's the fight boxing fans have been waiting for nearly as long.

When pondering specific match-ups in boxing, either between two active fighters or ones of a mythical nature, very few pairings truly give fans what many insiders call "the butterfly" effect.

It has also said that the X-37B Orbital has a wingspan of 14 feet, 11 inches, is almost 30 feet long, and weighs 11,000 pounds. The last mission lasted nearly two years and ended with a May touchdown at the runway formerly used by Nasa's space shuttles .

I see Alvarez keeping it close, and believe he's going to get the nod in narrow rounds from at least two of the three judges, Dave Moretti, Adalaide Byrd and Don Trella.

Here are some YouTube Live links for Golovkin versus Canelo Alvarez: YouTube Live Stream 1. "But it is not an obsession". If it doesnt, that is OK, too. "I'm ready to show how a true Mexican fights", Canelo told BoxNation. I learned a lot in that fight, ” added the Mexican boxing icon.

There's also the worry that he will have one eye on the other fight happening on the same night across the Atlantic between future rivals Canelo and Golovkin, involving all the other middleweight belts. In follow up to the Mayweather vs McGregor showdown, the the "GGG vs Canelo" bout is proclaimed as a "real fight".

Only the August 26 PPV that was headlined by Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor is expected to outsell Saturday's PPV this year. But regardless of the outcome, Golovkin-Alvarez is nearly guaranteed to be a close, exciting fight. But when money talks everybody listens.
