Gennady Golovkin vows to put record straight against Saul 'Canelo' Álvarez

GGG v Canelo

This Saturday is the night boxing fans have been waiting for!

Many at ringside thought he won that bout, but Alvarez pulled off a draw by winning the late rounds as the 36-year-old Golovkin seemed to fade.

The fight is a rematch from a fight in September 2017 that ended with a controversial draw.

WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin weighed in first at 159.6 pounds, then challenger Canelo Alvarez weighed 159.4 pounds at their weigh-in on Friday in Las Vegas.

Saturday's 12-round battle comes nearly a year to the day after the two fighters battled to a controversial draw in their first encounter.

But the scorecards that night left a bitter taste. However, that was scrapped after Canelo failed a drug test for the banned substance, clenbuterol.

Golovkin appeared to have done enough to edge Canelo out during a thrilling 12-round contest at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, only to be denied by the judges' scorecards in a now-infamous decision.

The 28-year-old vehemently denied any wrongdoing, maintaining he had ingested the drug accidentally as a result of eating contaminated beef from his native Mexico.

Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 knockouts) is a slight favorite in the rematch, much as he was in the first fight.

"At the moment I put him in the top five, and the only reason I don't put him any higher is because he needs that fight that people recognize, the signature fight or legacy fight", Sanchez said.

At 36 years old, Golovkin remains a ferocious operator who prides himself on a delivering a ruthless style of front-foot boxing that has seen him become one of the sport's most exciting names.

A relaxed-looking Golovkin later took a verbal jab at his Mexican rival after the face-off.
