Then, there's the fight against Brook before that, which a lot of critics are also using against "Triple G". I'm hoping being in the ring with the best Gennady will bring out the best Canelo. The Kazakh worked the head and the body with sharp bursts, putting on a clinic in stopping his dance partner in the eighth round with Steve Willies jumping in confirming the TKO.

Late into a decade which has featured alternate good and horrifically bad years in terms of big fights being made (and more importantly delivering), this is a fight that retains a very old school feel.

Golovkin, however, has finished his opponents much faster than Alvarez.

In terms of the size of the challenge and the performance, many will look back at this fight as one of the defining night in the career of GGG. "I want you to all enjoy it like I'm going to enjoy it".

Alvarez and Golovkin face off for the WBA, WBC and IBF middleweight titles.

While the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight last month turned out to be a better match than many expected, the simple truth is that matchup was hyped more by the curiosity than the actual boxing appeal.

There was a time when it didn't seem that the fight would happen.

What are the best bets for this exciting fight?

Ultimately, Mayweather showed the world he's an all-time great and that Alvarez still had work to do. "We have been talking about this fight for three years".

Jeff Sherman, assistant sportsbook manager at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, opened the fight with GGG -150 and Canelo +130. He has successfully defended his middleweight crown 18 straight times and believes at the age of 35 he could shatter Bernard Hopkins' record of 20 straight defenses. But let's not underscore the importance of what Alvarez-Golovkin could mean to the future. "I'm expecting him to come forward and come for the knockout".

A fighter should fight anyone and I think they would all be as hard a fight as each other but I'd probably rather fight "GGG" because I wouldn't have to go looking for him.

"It's very interesting for me".
