Canelo Alvarez ready to show 'how a true Mexican fights'

But if you want what's going to be the best fight of the year, that's probably happening Saturday night when Canelo Alavarez fights Gennady Golovkin - aka GGG.

Billy Joe Saunders's second defense of his World Boxing Organization belt against Willie Monroe Jr in London will not attract the same attention or glamor but is nevertheless significant since the winner is likely to face the victor of Golovkin-Alvarez clash, which takes place a few hours later in Las Vegas.

Of course, Alvarez is a better quality opponent than anyone Golovkin has faced. Some in boxing thought it showed some vulnerability or suggested that at the age of 35 Triple G is getting a bit old. He executes it better, and from different angles, and it's a very devastating punch.

Alvarez is 49-1-1 with 34 knockouts to his name, his lone loss coming to Mayweather in 2013, when he was still relatively inexperienced.

The Mexican superstar said the time for talking is over after weighing-in for his superfight with middleweight kingpin Golovkin. Utilizing a snapping jab and brutal overhand right, Golovkin dishes out as much damage with his precise combinations as he does with his aggression as an in-fighter. This is GGG's first fight in Vegas and he will not want to disappoint by playing it safe.

"I know what is around the corner, I want to test myself against one of the greats".

He's lived through the golden eras of Joe Louis and Sugar Ray Robinson, Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier, Sugar Ray Leonard and Roberto Duran, and he's still actively promoting fights in Northern California. This means that fans of the sports are looking forward to see the outcome of the upcoming sold-out match between the two middleweight fighters. "Boxing needs this fight and I'm glad I was able to make it".

"Some fighters think, well, it's a payday", he says.

- Canelo is fighting for the coveted "lineal" middleweight championship for the third time, winning on both previous occasions against Khan and Miguel Cotto. But there's more than one way to wager on a fight of this size. "I am the boss, not Canelo".
