Alverez vs GGG more worthwhile than Mayweather-McGregor circus, says Ndou

Canelo Alvarez left and Gennady Golovkin meet Saturday night in a middleweight title clash as highly anticipated by boxing purists

Canelo Alvarez left and Gennady Golovkin meet Saturday night in a middleweight title clash as highly anticipated by boxing purists

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. "Right now I think new stories, new times for us". He has 25 knockouts that have occurred in the six round or earlier.

Golovkin will make his 19th consecutive middleweight title defense since winning the WBA middleweight title in 2010. Whether you want to watch the fight from the comfort of your couch or are looking for a more lively setting to take in the sporting event, you've got a few options to choose from come fight night.

Alvarez is a veteran of nine contests in Vegas - nine more than Golovkin has undertaken in the United States' fight capital. He debuted at 15 years old, and has fought 12 current or former champions over that span. Golovkin on the other had has fought five current or former champions in his career.

What they do have in common is the ability to knockout their opponents with a single punch.

Both fighters also seemingly possess a granite chin, with neither fighter having been so much as knocked down thus far in their careers, while the sole loss recorded between the pair's combined 88 professional bouts was a gallant defeat for a young Alvarez at the hands of Floyd Mayweather Jr, who boxed his way to a majority decision victory over the Mexican back in 2013.

Chelsea's Tiemoue Bakayoko favours Champions League over Premier League win
Chelsea have lost only one of their last 13 Champions League group games (W9 D3), away against Porto in September 2015 (1-2). A look at betting odds at betting sites such as netbet.co.uk shows Chelsea is odds on to win this game and rightly so.

Reasons for the delay ranged from Alvarez not wanting the fight, to Oscar De La Hoya not wanting to risk his golden goose losing, to De La Hoya wanting his star client having enough time in building his body up for the grind of the 160-pound division.

If Golovkin gets to rattle Alvarez with his punching power, however, he can not expect the Mexican to just fold up and be a stationary target because Alvarez has good ring movement and knows how to bob and weave. He lands 65.4 punches per round, according to CompuBox, exactly 10 more per round than the middleweight average.

The two athlete's styles are almost complete opposites: Canelo is a crafty, fast and explosive counter puncher while GGG is an aggressive fighter willing to take a punch to land one, and is always looking for the finish.

"It will be way better than the recent Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor circus we witnessed". So how does he do it? Furthermore, with what is often praised as the best jab in boxing now, Golovkin exercises great control over his opponents. Golovkin ranks first in jabs landed per round (10.6) according to CompuBox.

Through it all, Alvarez's opponent seemed to believe the delay wasn't on Canelo. Similarly, fighting in Las Vegas will give the Mexican the home advantage over the Kazakh. We'll see if he can extend his streak of 18-consecutive title defenses under the bright lights of sin city.
