It has been years since the two last fought one another. Many have questioned if a third fight was worth it. Once Canelo Alvarez and Gennadiy “GGG” Golovkin faced off for their first press conference since September 2018 for the trilogy fight, however, the interest level increased exponentially.
Canelo and Golovkin will face off on September 17 from inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The previous fights between the two were contested in that arena. It is the perfect setting for Canelo and Golovkin to duke it out, potentially for the last time. On the line will be Canelo’s WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, WBO, and The Ring super-middleweight titles.
“I don’t want this fight to go the distance. I think this fight is going to be the best. The third fight between us will be the best,” Canelo stated during the New York press conference. These two know exactly what they are doing.
It will be a tough fight, as there previous two fights, I see the fight going the distance and Canelo winning it via majority decision. With Golovkin being 40 years old, it seemed in his last fight with Murata, he was hurt a few times in the body and with Canelo being a murderous puncher in the body and coming forward as Canelo promised during the New York Press Conference, it could be very tough.
