The boxing match of the year: Alvarez vs Golovkin
Canelo Alvarez ( 49W - 1L- 1D) vs Gennady Golovkin(37W- 0L- OD)
I get excited every time there is a good boxing match and I think this is the first time that I may be as thrilled as if I am watching a Manny Pacquiao fight.
Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin have the right ingredients that could make up an epic fight and the boxing nation agrees. This maybe the best boxing match up of the year and we have the promoter to thank for making the fight happen now and not letting the fans wait. Oscar Dela Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions delivered as promised as both fighters are set to meet on September 16.
We are expecting the fighters to bring out the best against each other in a spectacular showdown that may have split boxing aficionados in equal half. I am a fan of both boxers and in most cases, I will usually have a definite choice on who I think would win or who I want to win but in this case, I just could not choose which side to root for.
Both fighters are special in their own ways and it's hard to predict who would end up on top as both never faced a fighter like each other.
Gennady Golovkin at 35 years old looks stronger and more aggressive and he has shown his smashing power against every opponent he faced. Canelo, on the other hand, is in his prime at 27 and he looks like the better boxer and can win if he chooses to box with Golovkin, but that might be far from happening as Canelo himself declared in different interviews that he will try to stop Golovkin.
Both fighters want to impress the boxing world
My Prediction would be a knockout, someone is going down, my problem is, I do not know who it's going to be.
The real winner of this fight is the fans and I can guarantee that the boxing fans will go home talking about this fight for a long time.
