'Canelo' Alvarez And Gennady Golovkin To Finally Fight

'Canelo' Alvarez And Gennady Golovkin To Finally Fight

The pair will finally trade leather this Saturday night from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, live on BoxNation, with two-weight world champion Canelo revealing where the feud between the Mexican rivals originated.

Alvarez didn't send his fans home disappointed as he invited WBC middleweight titleholder Gennady Golovkin and his trainer Abel Sanchez into the ring to announce their long overdue fight, which is said to take place on September 16.

And yeah, you read that right: Canelo just verbally agreed to square off against GGG, meaning one of the most explosive encounters in boxing is now in the calendar.

"We are extremely proud we can have this fight with Triple G for you in September, which will be one of the biggest fights anticipated in recent years".

Canelo's convincing defeat of Chavez was his seventh straight victory since he suffered the only defeat of his professional career, in 51 fights, to Floyd Mayweather Jr. back in 2013.

The three judges awarded Alvarez all 12 rounds with each scorecard marked 120-108. I would've attacked more I would've been countered by his punches.

Senators are 4-0 in their last 4 home games. "It's just not going to happen", Clarke MacArthur said. "They're a veteran team". "When you lose, you're always looking to see what went wrong", said Kunitz, a three-time Cup victor .

"If I have the opportunity to be the stronger guy in there, I'm going to use it", Chavez said. "I showed as a fighter I can do all things". Alvarez will fight "Triple G" on Sept.16. "He's a good fighter, very fast and very consistent". At the post fight press conference Chavez, Jr. blamed his poor effort on inactivity and on fighting below the 168lb division. "I always thought he was a good fighter".

"I came here to win, not just fight", Chavez said.

'When I was born, fear was gone. "In September, it will be a different style, a big drama show".

While Mexican boxing fans, celebrating Cinco de Mayo weekend, largely booed at Chavez for not making the fight competitive, they largely left happy with a bombshell of an announcement regarding Canelo's next opponent.

Mexico's Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs), 26, who also is a former two-time junior middleweight world titleholder, said he did not have a hard time staying focused on Chavez, even though the bigger fight with Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs), 35, was signed and a secret. Then the fight was a dud.

There was no title on the line Saturday as Alvarez moved up in weight to fight the much bigger Chavez at a catchweight of 164lbs.
