Saunders and Monroe want Golovkin-Alvarez shot

Billy Joe Saunders

After the fight, Alvarez invited Golovkin into the ring as the early seeds for this weekend's contest were sewn.

"This is a fight boxing can be proud of".

"I don't care who is in front of me", Diaz said, via espn.com. GGG threw 12.4 more jabs per round than Canelo and 11.2 more power shots per round.

Gennady Golovkin and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez will meet in a ring in Las Vegas this morning (Singapore time) in what could be a fight for the ages for the world middleweight championship.

Canelo's camp wanted more time for Alvarez to grow into being a true 160-pound fighter, but the whispers in boxing was De La Hoya didn't want his golden goose to be in any potential danger of losing a fight.

Decisions, decisions... Even though both men have shown little to no trepidation leading into this Saturday night's spectacle, don't be surprised if this one goes to the judges' scorecards.

"I think boxing is at a place right now where we're starting to feel and see the momentum shifting".

The undefeated Golovkin, whose World Boxing Council, World Boxing Association and International Boxing Federation titles will be on the line, said he is expecting the toughest fight of his career against a boxer six years his junior.

This will be the 10th time that Alvarez has boxed in Las Vegas, where he has been built into the star to replace Mayweather.

Blessed with the power, size and athleticism few middleweights have possessed, Alvarez (49-1- 1) has become the top draw in the world of the squared circle. "I wish it was an hour to the fight instead of having to wait until tomorrow". I dont take it today as a defeat, I take it as an experience. While Canelo's size, resiliency and counter punches will make it challenging for Golovkin to find the finish, its GGG's sustained pressure and punching volume that damage Alvarez enough to lead to the stoppage, but not before Golovkin's chin is put to the ultimate test.

Your best bet to watch the McGregor - Mayweather fight free on Saturday night is to go to a YouTube Live page that promises to stream the fight.

Both fighters while similar in their approach and styles have very different strengths and attributes. But when money talks everybody listens.
