Best bets for GGG-Canelo fight

Canelo Alvarez physique

Canelo-GGG is a reminder of how good the sport can be - how it used to be - when one simple philosophy matters most: the best fighting the best.

The Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin press conference is brought to you by FITE TV and can be streamed below. The Kazakh worked the head and the body with sharp bursts, putting on a clinic in stopping his dance partner in the eighth round with Steve Willies jumping in confirming the TKO.

Carrying only one bag, he flew to Los Angeles in 2010 to work with Big Bear-based trainer Abel Sanchez in preparation for a nontitle fight in Panama.

But maybe that is not such a surprise when you consider that Alvarez turned pro at just 15-years-old after running out of amateur opponents while still just a boy. Whether you want to watch the fight from the comfort of your couch or are looking for a more lively setting to take in the sporting event, you've got a few options to choose from come fight night.

The reason I say that is because I believe that Golovkin will win by late stoppage. Who I am? Canelo?

Alvarez and Golovkin face off for the WBA, WBC and IBF middleweight titles.

The problems in predicting the bout is both fighters do not have a common opponent, which is very rare, because Alvarez has more fights at welterweight (147 pounds) and junior middleweight (154 pounds) compared to Golovkin who has thrived more at middleweight (160 pounds). I've wanted this fight for a long time. The Alvarez-Golovkin fight can still end in a lopsided decision if one of the fighters in the later rounds can still land more meaningless punches.

The middleweights are always an exciting division but the fights that are on this weekend shows just how great the weight category is right now.

The triple world champion touched down in Las Vegas on Tuesday to begin his final preparations for a fight he has craved for more than two years. But let's not underscore the importance of what Alvarez-Golovkin could mean to the future. Canelo and Billy Joe could use their feet and fight off the back-foot to make life hard for me. I feel very comfortable.
