Golovkin, Canelo prepare for boiling point in grudge match

It was too sexy’ Ring girls reveal GGG v Canelo ‘snub’ over raunchy clip

The two leading middleweights battled to a 12-round draw last September in an exciting bout that most pundits believed Golovkin won.

Not wanting to risk a period of inactivity, he remained determined to fight on May 5th, taking on former world title challenger Vanes Martirosyan in a hastily-arranged clash at the StubHub Center in Los Angeles. Golovkin, 36, a Kazakhstan native fighting out of Santa Monica, California, and seeking to break the all-time middleweight defense record he shares with Bernard Hopkins by retaining his title for the 21st consecutive time, weighed in first and was 159.6 pounds.

"I have motivation", he said.

Alvarez's six-month ban after testing positive for clenbuterol - he claimed the positive test came from eating contaminated meat - scuppered the first prospective rematch date earlier this year.

"And if he fights him, he's going to get knocked out".

The courageous Armenian lasted all of four minutes and 53 seconds before being clobbered into submission as Golovkin made a statement to his rivals in the division with yet another imposing knockout. But it was a tough, competitive matchup that delivered in other ways even without a victor at the end. I defeated the weigh-in, now it's time for me to defeat him on Saturday.

"Every night in my bed before I go to sleep I visualize what I need to do to get the knockout", Alvarez said through an interpreter. "I know that if I get angry and closed-minded, that I might make some mistakes, and it will be wrong".

The fight, which carries a pay-per-view price tag of $84.95, is big for the careers of both men.

Tonight (Fri. September 14, 2018) Canelo and Golovkin will face off one final time before stepping into the ring against one another.

Golovkin trainer Abel Sanchez hopes he does just that.

Golovkin ditched his placid persona, tearing into Canelo on a number of occasions in the press before demanding revised financial terms to fight the two-weight world champion once again. "In order to win a fight you have to want to win a fight". The unified middleweight champion's team has also gone as far to say that Alvarez "ran" a lot in the first outing and didn't fight "Mexican Style". A more stationary Alvarez, of course, would make him easier to hit, but Alvarez is more comfortable as a boxer and counter puncher and used those skills to his advantage in the first fight. The rematch is sold out, but a lackluster promotion might make it more hard to sell as many pay-per-views as the two fighters did when they first met.
