  • GETTYSaul'Canelo Alvarez was pressured into fighting Gennady Golovkin- Abel Sanchez

Gennady Golovkin says his unification fight with Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in Las Vegas on Saturday will be the "biggest of this era". 13 beginning at 3 p.m. EST.

"I rate Canelo as pound for pound the best fighter in the world now that Mayweather has retired again".

Enter for the opportunity to win a glove signed by Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin, courtesy of our friends at HBO Boxing. Las Vegas sports books appear to be leaning towards the second group, as they have pegged GGG as the favorite. "This is very much boxing's Super Bowl and the best it can offer in terms of competition, 50/50 matchmaking and the potential for explosiveness". Even more important than his power is the way he applies it. Golovkin is economical with his punches, with CompuBox finding he lands an average of 27.5 punches/round compared to an all-division average of 16.8.

The Lebanon Police Department is asking people to avoid the area while roads around the hospital have been closed. There are some reports on Twitter that one person has been shot.

Over the past year, a strong contingent of boxing fans and pundits feel the gap separating Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) and Canelo (49-1-1, 34 KOs) has narrowed. Triple G is top of the rankings when it comes to jabs landed per round, averaging 12, which is over double the average across the professional ranks. "He is there to get hit Golokvin, you can hit him and he (Canelo) carries more power is bigger than I probably was when I moved up at the time", Brook said.

"This is similar and much bigger than my fight against Mayweather", Alvarez told Sporting News. Using lateral movement, GGG stalks his opponents to the ropes or corners, where many of his knockouts take place. How do I know when to refer to him as GGG and when to call him Gennady Golovkin?

Billy Joe Saunders v Willie Munroe Jr is on the same night in London so I'll be interested in seeing that fight as well, with the only other middleweight belt on the line - the WBO.
