'Smokin' Joe Mullender breaks down Canelo v Golovkin

WHY GGG CAN LOSE: This is the biggest fight of Golovkin's career. He has done it fighting everywhere but in the boxing capital of the world, where he will make his debut against Alvarez at Las Vegas' new T-Mobile Arena. "We have been talking about this fight for the last two years and I lost interest, because I was hearing the same thing after each fight from Golden Boy Promotions".

Gennady "Triple G" Golovkin will face off against Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

He has a single loss to Floyd "Money" Mayweather against 49 wins with 34 knockouts. The eight year age gap has never been more telling, with boxing experts recently praising the young Mexican for improving massively in every one of his recent performances, while simultaneously noting the cracks appearing to show in Golovkin's energy and effectiveness.

I knew Golovkin would be exposed as another HBO creation similar to Manny Pacquiao. GGG has to rely more on his power than his boxing skills as well. Everyone thought he could walk through everyone and most of the fighters he fought were beaten before they were hit.

"I can assure you that I will do my part and I will do my best to give you all a attractive fight".

A late knockout or stoppage-if both fighters respect each other's punching power, the fight still can end in a stoppage or knockout in the later rounds or even beyond the 10th round. How has GGG gotten old when he hasn't taken any damage? Facing Mayweather highlighted that Canelo struggles to land effectively against fast footed fighters who flit in and out of range, which Golovkin is certainly not.

Golovkin doesn't have the tools that Canelo has, all he can do is go forward and try to break you down by imposing his will on you.

"On Friday he got a call about 12 that she was going to the hospital and I told him to go home but he said, "No we are going to train at 3pm".

Golovkin, the unbeaten knockout puncher from Kazakhstan, will defend his middleweight titles against Alvarez, Mexico's biggest boxing star.

Saturday will mark Canelo's second bout of 2017.
