Las Vegas will once again be the center of attention of boxing fans. The World Boxing Association (WBA) Middleweight Super Champion, Gennady Golovkin, will defend his crown against Saul “Canelo” Alvarez in a bout that promises to be the fight of the year at the T-Mobile Arena this Saturday.
After several months of anticipation and craving for the arrival of the bout, they are finally ready to go in the ring and define who is the best fighter in the category as of today. The weigh-in ceremony was crowded by fans and press, leaving everything served for the fight. Both boxers made the weight and overcame the first challenge before their bout.
“GGG” hit the scale at 160 pounds, while Alvarez stopped it at 160 pounds. Afterwards, both went face to face and excited those who have waited years for this moment.
The fight promises to be one of the greatest of the weight division historically. The Kazakh has won 37 fights, 33 of them by knockout. The 35-year-old seeks to prove that he is still at his best and that he is the most outstanding fighter today.
