Who won Canelo vs GGG's first fight?

"Sometimes people who are 25 seem old, you know?"

A year ago, this was the biggest fight in the world.

An ill-tempered confrontation before several thousand fans at the T-Mobile Arena saw a minor scuffle after the two fighters came together after stepping on the scales.

A bout that was a thriller first time round.

John Murray, sportsbook manager at the Westgate, said there has been less hype in Las Vegas about the rematch than there was for the first fight, which took place last September, shortly after the megabout between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor.

The Mexican star has to stay composed.

And the fearsome Kazakh, who has never been put on the canvas in 39 professional fights, believes the majority of boxing fans will be in his corner.

Asked whether Canelo should be allowed to fight at all, Golovkin replied: "I'm a fighter, not a commissioner". It was the first positive test of his career, a setback he blamed on the consumption of tainted steak in his home country of Mexico.




Alvarez was ultimately suspended for six months by the Nevada Athletic Commission. However, that was scrapped after Canelo failed a drug test for the banned substance, clenbuterol.

Gennady Golovkin is a solid favorite in his rematch with Canelo Alvarez on Saturday in Las Vegas, but the bulk of the early action at sportsbooks, including some of the largest bets, have been on the underdog.

Whether that translates into a more entertaining fight remains to be seen.

The courageous Armenian lasted all of four minutes and 53 seconds before being clobbered into submission as Golovkin made a statement to his rivals in the division with yet another imposing knockout. He has had 13 world title fights and won championships at 154 and 160 pounds.

"If he intends to knock out Golovkin, he's going to have to fight him", Sanchez said.

The two legendary fighters are set to go head-to-head once again on Saturday night after their much-debated and extremely controversial first fight, which ended in a split draw decision.

Golovkin is from Kazakhstan, but markets himself as a Mexican-style boxer, who fights with heart, courage and a hunger for the knockout.

"I had a great experience from the first fight", Golovkin said.

But the youthful Mexican could look to push the pace against his aging rival who, despite having looked as fresh as ever during recent contests, will surely one day show signs of slowing up.
