Canelo-GGG: Which knockout artist has the edge?

039;Mexican-Style' boxing What is it really

The match will be for Alvarez's The Ring middleweight title, while Golovkin will also defend his WBA, WBC, IBF and IBO middleweight championships. Las Vegas sports books appear to be leaning towards the second group, as they have pegged GGG as the favorite.

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.

Possessing impeccable records and incredible knockout power, both fighters have also promised a "Mexican-style" drama show, having indicated that their intentions are exclusively focused on stopping their opponent, going as far as guaranteeing that this fight will not go the distance.

This clash is being touted by boxing experts as the biggest clash in the 160-pound division since the historic night 30 years ago when "Sugar" Ray Leonard defeated "Marvelous" Marvin Hagler via what was a controversial split decision.

There have been few fights in recent years that have generated as much buzz as this weekend's Canelo/GGG contest and though many are split down the middle about who will come away with the victory, pretty much everyone is in agreement that the bout itself will be a thriller.

"I'm expecting the very best Gennady, a well-rounded Gennady", Alvarez said. The fight is more important to him. For what it's worth, Mayweather insists that "flat footed" GGG makes a lot of mistakes and will absolutely not defeat the Mexican. How do I know when to refer to him as GGG and when to call him Gennady Golovkin?

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.

The highly anticipated marquee matchup the real boxing world has been waiting for is finally happening Saturday, live on HBO Pay Per View from Las Vegas Nevada.

But maybe that is not such a surprise when you consider that Alvarez turned pro at just 15-years-old after running out of amateur opponents while still just a boy.
