A year later, Golovkin, Alvarez meet with bad intentions

GGG v Canelo

Last year, the pair of world-class middleweights clashed in Las Vegas, Nevada in a tremendous back-and-forth affair.

Anticipated to be one of the biggest fights of the year, the encounter has taken on added spice with Golovkin accusing Canelo of disrespecting boxing fans after his two failed drugs test scuppered original plans for a rematch in May earlier this year.

The two legendary fighters are set to go head-to-head once again on Saturday night after their much-debated and extremely controversial first fight, which ended in a split draw decision.

Alvarez, 28, has maintained his innocence, citing tainted meat in Mexico after he tested positive for the banned substance clenbuterol.

Sanchez said a decisive victory for Golovkin will cement his place amongst the greatest middleweights in boxing history, delivering a signature victory that his otherwise stellar CV lacks.

LAS VEGAS - The last time unified middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez went face-to-face and looked into each other's eyes was in February at the kickoff news conference for their ill-fated May 5 rematch.

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

Golovkin is unbeaten with a 39-0-1 record, while Alvarez is 49-1-2, with his only loss coming against Floyd Mayweather in 2013.

"I'm bothered by all the stupid things they've been saying and I've been using it as motivation in my training for this fight".

A more aggressive approach from Alvarez, however, may well play into Golovkin's hands. "I would expect quite a few large bets Saturday".

But in June past year , he chose to use his money to help those who needed it sooner, turning to Twitter for donation suggestions. Amazon, meanwhile, has been criticized for years for largely taking a pass on the formal donation programs of corporate peers.

"For the most part, we did a good job in the first fight", said Alvarez, who still insists he won at least seven rounds.

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

"He's promised the fans he's going to knock him out, but in order to do that you have to be in range", Sanchez said. "I know it's going to be a tough fight".

Eventually, to the delight of fight fans around the world, the two parties came together for a third time on a deal that will see the duo go to war for the WBA and WBC middleweight world titles, nearly a year to the day since their first meeting.

The official purses were confirmed to ESPN on Friday by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, although both fighters are expected to make upwards of tens of millions more after pay-per-view sales.
