Canelo-GGG: Which knockout artist has the edge?

Canelo Alvarez's physique change hasn't gone unnoticed by Gennady Golovkin Boxing Packed on a lot of muscle

There's Gennady Golovkin, the nice guy outside the boxing ring, and then there's "GGG" the ferocious boxer inside the ring.

SAUL "CANELO" ALVAREZ knows that nothing short of a convincing victory against Gennady Golovkin can elevate him to the boxing pantheon of all-time greats. Estimated value of the signed glove is $200 U.S. This contest is open to residents of U.S. and Canada (excluding Quebec) 18 years and over. I've wanted this fight for a long time.

The reporter's remark (translated into English) made reference to Golovkin allegedly saying according to the reporter that Golovkin said he stopped knocking out opponents in the run-up to the Canelo fight this year just to lure Canelo into actually fighting him.

I wrote at the time this was confirmed, this is a fight of the decade. "I want to win this fight because for me this win will be like a history fight, like so many fights, like Leonard vs Hagler and others from that era".

Other than the Mayweather fight, Canelo has looked almost unstoppable against top tier opponents like Miguel Cotto and Amir Khan.

LA-based Golovkin has won all 37 of his pro fights, including 33 big wins coming by way of stoppages, building a reputation as a devastating finisher who can unleash uncanny and unorthodox punching power from either hand. Ironically, Alvarez is now the fighter moving up in weight to challenge the heavier champion. You can even bring up how important the fight is to the careers of both participants.

Despite being unbeaten with an 89% KO ratio, Golovkin is not yet the superstar that Canelo is but he will be after this fight.

Fight of the Year, much too close to call, as two knockout kings fail to knock each other out. They are both great fighters but one has been rocked before and now goes up against a fully-fledged middleweight who has never been hurt and happens to have one of the hardest punches in the game!

Boxer Canelo Alvarez arrives at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino on September 12, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. I think GGG's experience will give him an extremely slight edge and I would not be shocked to be wrong on this one.
