GGG has to rely more on his power than his boxing skills as well.
Saunders, who hasn't boxed since last December, said: "I signed to fight both Golovkin and Canelo, but none of them have come off". 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. The fight is more important to him.
Here's a look at where the money is going from Vegas bookmakers, along with opinions from boxing experts, trainers and my pick for the fight.
Alvarez's familiarity with his surroundings means little to Golovkin, who said: "It's not special".
"Most of the top super-middleweights I have sparred and they will tell you I did well". Who I am? Canelo? It will, no doubt, be a big test for Bill but if he comes through it then he deserves a shot at the victor of Canelo v Golovkin. "We have been talking about this fight for three years".
I wrote at the time this was confirmed, this is a fight of the decade.
US Poverty Rate Falls, Median Income Rises in 2016
At the same time, the agency said last year's official USA poverty rate was about where it was before the recent US recession. The Census Bureau says the median income, adjusted for inflation, rose 3.2% from 2015 to 2016 to $59,039.
It is a remarkable fact that Golovkin is eight years older than Canelo yet has fought fewer than half as many professional rounds as his opponent. It's rare to get two greats such as Canelo and Golovkin together at the same time so I'm really pleased to be a part of such an exciting era.
Should the victor of the fight do so in a demonstrative and impressive way, the reward could be more than simply identification as the best middleweight in the world - in this case, the victor could find himself being declared the pound-for-pound best boxer in the world.
The middleweights are always an exciting division but the fights that are on this weekend shows just how great the weight category is right now.
Boxer Canelo Alvarez arrives at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino on September 12, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. "I'm expecting him to come forward and come for the knockout". How do I know when to refer to him as GGG and when to call him Gennady Golovkin?
Their last two fights have made me resolutely believe it is a Canelo victory. I feel very comfortable.
