Canelo vs. GGG 2: How Canelo Alvarez will beat Gennady Golovkin

Canelo vs. GGG 2: How Canelo Alvarez will beat Gennady Golovkin

Golovkin was left stunned when their first bout in September past year was declared to be a split-decision draw - then kept waiting for his second shot after Alvarez failed a drugs test.

Golovkin, who most observers believe should have been awarded victory in last September's drawn first fight, has rubbished Alvarez's explanation for the failed drug tests.

For the most part, the animosity between the two men has had a ring of authenticity about it.

But Alvarez may have more at stake than Golovkin, the puncher from Kazakhstan who has held pieces of the middleweight title for eight years.

"I won the weigh-in, and tomorrow I'll win the fight", he said.

"Those are the excuses that they are making because of what is coming on Saturday, which is a loss for them".

Golovkin and his team have repeatedly publicly criticised Alvarez, after the fight was initially postponed due to the Mexican fighter testing positive for clenbuterol in March of 2018.

"Maybe they said it to get me mad, and you know what, they did it".

A more aggressive approach from Alvarez, however, may well play into Golovkin's hands.

Mother and infant are first Hurricane Florence fatalities
The outer bands of Hurricane Florence began battering the coast of North and South Carolina Thursday with strong winds and rain. Utility companies said millions were expected to lose power and that restoring it could take weeks.

Johnny Avello, executive director of the Wynn race and sports books, said if the fight went off on Friday that he'd need the underdog.

First up, pound-for-pound king and former four-division world champion Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez makes his eagerly awaited return against experienced Mexican warrior Moises "Moi" Fuentes in a ten-round super flyweight bout.

Yet while Alvarez was able to frustrate Golovkin, he did little in the way of meaningful damage. Judge Adalaide Byrd scored the fight 118-110 Alvarez over GGG, who many thought was the victor.

A rematch between Canelo and Golovkin was subsequently agreed that would have seen the two foes face off on May 5th in a fight perfectly poised to light up boxing's fabled Cinco de Mayo weekend.

Abel Sanchez, who has trained Golovkin at his gym in the San Bernardino Mountains outside Los Angeles since 2011, agrees. "I want to punish him for all the bad things that he and his team have done".

The two-division world champion should have known the type of pace Golovkin likes to use and prepared better for it. Golovkin is who he is and at this stage of his fight career, isn't going to alter too much of what got him to this point. "He would have got knocked out the first time, but he decided to make it a track meet".

"I'm very bothered and I'm angry at their accusations, but I will utilize it in my favor because I have experience in this", Alvarez said.

"I think this fight could be it".
