It may be coming a year later than we hoped, but the world should finally receive a decisive answer to the question of who is the better boxer between unified middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs) and Canelo Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs). After the two fought to a controversial split decision back in 2017, they were expected to fight again in May. However, due to a positive drug test supposedly triggered by contaminated beef from Mexico — yes, you read that correctly — Alvarez was suspended six months and not cleared to fight at that date.
In the meantime, Golovkin brutalized Vanes Martirosyan on that May date, setting the stage for Saturday’s fight. Not only are Golvokin’s unified WBA (super), WBC and WBO middleweight titles on the line, he and Alvarez will be fighting for the vacant Ring and lineal middleweight titles.
