Gennady Golovkin was brought from relative European obscurity in 2012 by signing with K2 promotions, who brought him under the wing of trainer Abel Sanchez who developed his Euro knockout style into an aggressive, pursuing, Mexican style.

"He can be hit and he can be out-boxed, he can be beaten and top fighters are going to go in with that mentality". I'm very confident because of the work and the training and everything I put in for this fight. We pride ourselves in taking a deeper look into the fighter, and understanding what makes them tick. "I've changed, and I learned from it", Alvarez said.

Brook (36-2 record in boxing) faced Golovkin (37-0 record in boxing) in September 2016 as despite a spirited performance, the 31-year-old lost via TKO, having suffered a fractured eye socket.

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)".

"In Canelo v Golovkin we have a genuine 50-50 matchup that has the makings to go down as one of the best fights in modern history". The crowd in Las Vegas might even boo the early negativity before, as Hopkins said, they each have to fight.

'I believe that he'll beat him.

De La Hoya doesn't shy away from hyperbole, calling the bout the biggest the division has ever seen.

While the fight will take place on Saturday night, the Canelo vs. GGG weigh-ins will be going down roughly 30 hours before the bout. Yet Margarito, in Cotto's prime, hurt him with nearly every shot he hit him with towards the end of the fight. "But in terms of magnitude, in terms of PR, in terms of attention that it's receiving, in terms of people that will be watching, yeah, this has to be the biggest". This is without doubt a fight that is amongst the best in boxing. Though they are both among the greatest in the sport, they aren't the arrogant showmen that some are.

"It is a special fight and one we are offering to United Kingdom and Irish fans with the best coverage, quality and value for money".

In Golovkin fights there are those very bad moments when his opponents can be heard suffering, letting out little screams as the Kazak maestro drills in short punches to the body and sickening hooks to the jaw.

Saturday night will be a war. It's one of those where you just got to flip a coin'. "However, in my heart, I've always wanted this, and I've always dreamed of the day in which my discipline would pave the way to where I am".
