"(This) will be the chance for Canelo Alvarez or Gennady Golovkin to stake their claim to join such revered company.

Enter for the opportunity to win a glove signed by Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin, courtesy of our friends at HBO Boxing. "And (Saturday's bout) will end up being much bigger than my fight with him". Estimated value of the signed glove is $200 U.S. This contest is open to residents of U.S. and Canada (excluding Quebec) 18 years and over.

If Golovkin gets to rattle Alvarez with his punching power, however, he can not expect the Mexican to just fold up and be a stationary target because Alvarez has good ring movement and knows how to bob and weave. So, we are happy that this fight was put together at the very best moment. That's why we prepared, and also to give the fans a attractive fight. Golovkin, 35, is the older fighter between the two middleweights, but 27-year-old Alvarez has the edge in experience.

Golovkin, however, has finished his opponents much faster than Alvarez. Alvarez is a former welterweight and super welterweight champion who moved up to a catch weight of 164 pounds for his fight against Chavez.

His last fight against Julio Cesar Chavez resulted in a comfortable points win but sparked boos from a crowd unimpressed by Chavez's survive-at-all-costs approach.

Late into a decade which has featured alternate good and horrifically bad years in terms of big fights being made (and more importantly delivering), this is a fight that retains a very old school feel. I'm just more focused.

Despite being unbeaten with an 89% KO ratio, Golovkin is not yet the superstar that Canelo is but he will be after this fight. "So probably, yeah, five years more". Las Vegas sports books appear to be leaning towards the second group, as they have pegged GGG as the favorite.

"On Friday he got a call about 12 that she was going to the hospital and I told him to go home but he said, "No we are going to train at 3pm".

Many experts have been split down the middle, as both fighters seem evenly matched; some believe GGG is a bit past his prime, while others think the undefeated Kazakh will take the bout.
