Golovkin who preaches to the public that he is the real "Mexican Style" fighter because he brings the fight and never takes a backwards step, smiled to the crowd promising to give the fans an action packed event.

According to CBS Sports, "Saturday's fight represents something far more important to the sport than any carnival sideshow can provide (no matter how entertaining or lucrative said fight turned out to be)". Las Vegas sports books appear to be leaning towards the second group, as they have pegged GGG as the favorite.

Massive battles in the past featuring some of the divisions big names have inspired Golovkin to seek out the biggest test possible and Canelo will provide just that at the T-Mobile Arena this Saturday night.

The contest promises to be a fascinating one, and even the styles of the two fighters seem to complement one another, with Golovkin favouring an aggressive attacking approach and Alvarez preferring to sit back and hit on the counter.

"That's why we prepared, and also to give the fans a attractive fight", Canelo said. One thing is for sure: there will be a lot of money coming in on this fight. Canelo, is a very special guy. Seriously, I don't know, just my training every day, I'm just the same.

'I believe the middleweight division will come back.

'I want to win this fight because for me this win will be like a history fight, like Leonard vs. Hagler, ' Golovkin said. Right now for us it's huge.

Reverting to plan B, Lemieux started trying to walk down Golovkin in the middle rounds which lead to a similar lack of success in finding the gaps in Golovkin's defence. "It's one which I'm really looking forward to watching because fans have been asking to see this for a long time". Especially for me, it's huge'.
