Even so, Canelo told TMZ that his aim is to put Gennady Golovkin on the canvas within the first round of action: "Without a doubt, I'll be going in there to knock him out, that's what I've worked for", he conveyed through a translator.

Very short face-off as Canelo rushed at GGG and had to be restrained. First there was grumbling over Alvarez's performance in the first fight held a year ago that ended in an unsatisfying draw.

A positive test by Alvarez for clenbuterol forced the rematch to be postponed from May.

But the Kazakh destroyer was denied a 39th consecutive victory after being held to a controversial draw by Mexican rival Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in September a year ago. It all goes down tomorrow (Sat. September 15, 2018) from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In their first meeting, Alvarez fought cagily, deftly slipping away on the ropes and consistently circling to the left to avoid the Kazakh's fearsome jab.

The Mexican star has to stay composed. "Saturday night, there will be no escape".

The two largest bets on the fight at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas as of Friday afternoon - $20,000 and $18,000 - were both on Alvarez, driving the price on the underdog to as low as +115 at one point Thursday, and Caesars Palace said for every one bet they had taken on Golovkin, there were four on Alvarez.

Asked whether Canelo should be allowed to fight at all, Golovkin replied: "I'm a fighter, not a commissioner".

Alvarez was ultimately suspended for six months by the Nevada Athletic Commission.

Canelo has contended that the failed drugs test was due to contaminated meat he ingested by accident in his home country of Mexico.

But the consequences of Canelo's failed drugs test were enormous for Golovkin, too.

Gennady "GGG" Golovkin and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez both had to be restrained by their camps after facing off ahead of their long-awaited rematch. So, when this fight reaches the latter stages, he should have more than enough fuel to go the distance.

Both fighters comfortably made weight for the 160-pound world title fight.

"I want to punish him", said Golovkin, 38-0-1 with 34 knockouts.

At 36 years old, Golovkin remains a ferocious operator who prides himself on a delivering a ruthless style of front-foot boxing that has seen him become one of the sport's most exciting names. "The first fight was a good experience".

"He's promised the fans he's going to knock him out but in order to do that you have to be in range and then it gets unsafe", Sanchez said.
