Gennady Golovkin vows to put record straight against Saul 'Canelo' Álvarez

It all goes down tomorrow (Sat. September 15, 2018) from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Many at ringside thought he won that bout, but Alvarez pulled off a draw by winning the late rounds as the 36-year-old Golovkin seemed to fade.

But the Kazakh destroyer was denied a 39th consecutive victory after being held to a controversial draw by Mexican rival Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in September past year.

Canelo Alvarez has gone to bed the last few months thinking about how he's going to knock out Gennady Golovkin in their middleweight title rematch.

Anticipated to be one of the biggest fights of the year, the encounter has taken on added spice with Golovkin accusing Canelo of disrespecting boxing fans after his two failed drugs test scuppered original plans for a rematch in May earlier this year. Prior to the fight it was questioned whether Golovkin could get fair treatment in Las Vegas and the scorecards seemed to prove that, with one judge, Adalaide Byrd...

But the scorecards that night left a bitter taste. Alvarez tested positive for clenbuterol and blamed it on contaminated meat from his native Mexico.

"It's a real fight", Golovkin said this week.

Regardless, he was suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission before being handed a six-month ban, backdated from February, forcing him to pull out of the agreed rematch with Golovkin.

Members of both entourages quickly got between the two fighters to head off a physical confrontation after Alvarez appeared to rush towards Golovkin, who didn't flinch. I defeated the weigh-in, now it's time for me to defeat him on Saturday.

The former Olympic gold medallist is a brutal body puncher, perfecting the technique traditionally associated with Mexican boxing to finish some of the 160lb division's toughest men.
