HBO Boxing: Canelo vs. Golovkin Results

Billy Joe Saunders

“Im ready to go! "But as we get into the later rounds, Golovkin's power and size should take over".

"I believe this is my first step to history", Golovkin said. Finally a real fight... it's going to be 8 to 10 rounds of hell. "I've noticed as he's matured, that punch has matured with him". If he wants to stand toe-to-toe I will not back down. "I'm a counter puncher, and I like to fight".

"This is the fight boxing wanted and now it is here". Such is the respect his peers have for the 35 year old's power. The question will be as to who gives out first and will the much-vaunted jab of GGG unsettle the forward movement of Canelo? "Both guys are not going to back down".

"I expect Golovkin to win", boxing and MMA oddsmaker Joey Oddessa tells Covers.

It can be hard sometimes for boxers at or near the peak of their respective powers to meet in the ring, as business interests, injuries, promoters and the various boxing organizations can prevent some of those marquee matchups from ever taking place. Everything's good. My family and my team support me.

The mythical pound-for-pound title is also at stake in the "Supremacy" main event as the Alvarez vs. Golovkin victor - both fighters are rated among the top 5 in virtually all polls used to rank fighters regardless of weight classes - will become the undisputed world middleweight champion and arguably the world's best of the best. “This is our Mexican Independence Day holiday weekend gift to boxing and to boxing fans. While tenaciously walking down opponents, Golovkin also demonstrates great technical skills and punching accuracy. The two are scheduled to fight in a middleweight title fight Saturday in Las Vegas.

2012 U.S. Olympian Diaz, fighting out of South El Monte, California, is the reigning North American Boxing Federation (NABF) and North American Boxing Organization (NABO) featherweight champion. The energy will be off the charts. Just note that the fight will only be available through your cable box and not through HBO Go or HBO Now.


Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) has made 18 straight defenses in the middleweight division and is striving to get closer to the record held by Bernard Hopkins, who has 20 middleweight title defenses between 1994 and 2005.

Alvarez, who is gunning for his 50th career win, is coming off a lopsided win over of Chavez on May 6. Alvarez has not tasted defeat since losing a majority decision against Floyd Mayweather in 2013.

Through promoter Frank Warren, BoxNation have secured the rights to show the fight in the UK.

"I'm so excited about this fight".

The fight between two of the best boxers on the planet will take place in the same ring as Mayweather beat McGregor in three weeks earlier at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. "He took a beating before and if he quit before when there were three belts on the line, he will certainly quit when there's one belt on the line", said Saunders. Was I too young? But there's more than one way to wager on a fight of this size. I learned a lot from that fight. Indeed they do, which is one reason Golovkin has had trouble getting fighters in the ring with him. Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez meet Saturday night in a middleweight showdown that has been brewing for years.

Both fighters while similar in their approach and styles have very different strengths and attributes.

Only the August 26 PPV that was headlined by Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor is expected to outsell Saturday's PPV this year.

Canelo, like De La Hoya did in the Hopkins match, is moving up in weight to fight Golovkin. The former pound-for-pound king of the world has remarkably slowed down.
