Max Kellerman Brilliantly Explains Why GGG vs Canelo Is Bigger Than Pacquaio

There's a good chance he will fight the winner of the middleweight world title showdown between unified champion Gennady Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) and Canelo Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs), assuming the victor is not banged up from what is expected to be a hellacious battle on Saturday (HBO PPV, 8 p.m. ET) at the T-Mobile Arena.

It's not a totally unfamiliar place for Alvarez. Canelo Alvarez is boxing perfected.

Jacobs had 12 straight knockouts before facing Golovkin, and he failed to knock him down with any of his 144 power punches.

"He can be hit and he can be out-boxed, he can be beaten and top fighters are going to go in with that mentality".

Everyone that steps inside the ring feels Golovkin's power. Oddsmakers list Golovkin as a slight favourite, but many in the boxing world consider the bout a virtual coin flip, a matchup that could help energize the sport and evoke memories of the glory days of one of boxing's most storied weight classes. They seem allergic to boring fights, and refreshingly, unlike McGregor and Mayweather, they seem to avoid microphones like the strikes of their opponents. "The normal sequence that fighters generally went through to get bigger fights made doesn't happen anymore".

De La Hoya's era included champions such as Felix Trinidad and Hopkins, who's a partner in Golden Boy.

It has also been revealed that it will have a score by noted electronic musician Flying Lotus (real name Stephen Ellison). The plot revolves around an electricity failure on the west coast of the US.

Golovkin will now face arguably his toughest opponent yet in Canelo (49-1-1 record in boxing) on Saturday (16 September) as many believe the victor of the fight can be considered the best pound-for-pound fighter on the planet.

'I believe that he'll beat him. The crowd in Las Vegas might even boo the early negativity before, as Hopkins said, they each have to fight. Yet Margarito, in Cotto's prime, hurt him with nearly every shot he hit him with towards the end of the fight.

"We know that in fights, it takes two to tango". "But in terms of magnitude, in terms of PR, in terms of attention that it's receiving, in terms of people that will be watching, yeah, this has to be the biggest".

The legendary fighter is set to retire from boxing at the end of the year, following more than 15 years in the ring.

And Brook believes now is the best time for Canelo to face Golovkin as based on his last two performances, he showed that he was human and can be beaten. Saturday night may serve that objective. It's one of those where you just got to flip a coin'.
