Canelo vows to knock out Golovkin

Canelo vows to knock out Golovkin

And that's when I turn into Triple G. It's not that I'm mean, or angry. Canelo-GGG is a reminder of how good the sport can be - how it used to be - when one simple philosophy matters most: the best fighting the best.

Golovkin added: "I'm old school and I like it when there is just one champion". The Kazakh worked the head and the body with sharp bursts, putting on a clinic in stopping his dance partner in the eighth round with Steve Willies jumping in confirming the TKO.

The suggestion being that if he had kept knocking opponents out that Canelo and his handlers would not have taken the fight out of fear. Golovkin, 35, goes into the fight with a 37-0 record and 33 of his victories have come via knockout. You just have to deal with it, but I'm more motivated now than I have ever been in my career.

I think this is about two things for Canelo: One, timing. It will, no doubt, be a big test for Bill but if he comes through it then he deserves a shot at the victor of Canelo v Golovkin. The Alvarez-Golovkin fight can still end in a lopsided decision if one of the fighters in the later rounds can still land more meaningless punches. "When I fought Mayweather, I was 23 years old".

Ultimately, Mayweather showed the world he's an all-time great and that Alvarez still had work to do.

Alvarez will fight for the eighth time around Mexican Independence Day (September 16) and is 6-1 in those fights.

In a match-up that fans have demanded for years, this looks set to be a true fight in every sense of the word as well as undoubtedly being the toughest and most career-defining assignment of each boxer's journey to date.

Golovkin puts the other three world sanctioning belts on the line against Mexican star Canelo in their blockbuster fight in Las Vegas just hours later, but an impressive victory would propel the unbeaten Saunders into a compelling fight with the victor. "I'm expecting him to come forward and come for the knockout".

Their last two fights have made me resolutely believe it is a Canelo victory.

"It's very interesting for me".
