"These are the fights that define your career", said Oscar De La Hoya, who promotes Alvarez. He's the definition of a living legend.

Taking place during the Mexican Independence Day holiday this weekend, fans have been streaming into Las Vegas from all corners for a fight that Golovkin has promised will produce fireworks when it gets underway at the sold-out T-Mobile Arena. This one reminds me of waiting for the trilogy of (Carmen) Basilio and (Sugar Ray) Robinson. "I'm a counter puncher, and I like to fight".

"I believe this is my first step to history", Golovkin said. "It's not an easy fight for him or me", Golovkin said.

The Mexican superstar said the time for talking is over after weighing-in for his superfight with middleweight kingpin Golovkin. Between them they have 86 wins, against only one loss. We are going to give a great battle, ” Golovkin told BoxNation.

Gennady Golovkin landed 40.1% of his total punches- #1 among active fighters and he's only active fighter to land 40% or more of his power punches now that Money is re-retired. It could be a long evening, or a short, short evening for Canelo. I am ready for him and whatever he comes with.

"We know that in fights, it takes two to tango".

"He was a little wild with it until the last three or four fights".

Jacobs was unable to stay up for the entire fight, suffering a fourth-round knockdown, but he showed it's possible to fight Golovkin without getting annihilated, and he even outboxed his opponent in a few rounds. At the same time, it is a unsafe punch to deliver.

While Alvarez, 27, has strengthened both his body and skill, Golovkin, 35, has shown some slips.

The fight doesn't quite have the hype of Mayweather-McGregor, but it has a great chance to be the fight of the year.

Alvarez is one of the best boxers on the planet and is the right man to be the face of the fight game, but he is not the better fighter at this point in time. It's interesting exclusively because, judges and the commissions in boxing have a checkered history when it comes to promotion biases, and in the event of the fight going to decision, one can take a fair guess as to who would win the fight.

“Lets see on Saturday if he is going to knock me out. Both will make millions of dollars in a fight that holds risks - and plenty of rewards - for both of their careers. I learned a lot from that fight.
