Canelo Alvarez Training For 1st Round KO In Gennady Golovkin Rematch

Canelo Alvarez Training For 1st Round KO In Gennady Golovkin Rematch

Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin will collide once again. After failing two drug tests in February for clenbuterol and pushing the date from May 5 to September 15, Golovkin and his team have labeled Alvarez as a "cheater" - even though the latter has said on numerous occasions that contaminated meat caused the positive results.

For Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) to hand Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs) the first blemish of his career, he's going to need to do three things.

To wake up Sunday morning as the 160-pound champion, though, he'll have to take some chances he didn't in his first fight with Golovkin a year ago.

Who are you expecting to emerge victorious this time around, Gennady Golovkin or Canelo Alvarez?

"Those are the excuses that they are making because of what is coming on Saturday, which is a loss for them". Instead, Alvarez, in an uncharacteristic move, charged at Golovkin and pressed his forehead against GGG's. "The error I made was there were some spots in the first fight where he was vulnerable and I didn't take advantage". "I know that if I get angry and closed-minded, that I might make some mistakes, and it will be wrong".

Yet while Alvarez was able to frustrate Golovkin, he did little in the way of meaningful damage. 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...

Byrd only gave Golovkin the fourth and seventh round of the fight.

Maurizio Sarri open to John Terry returning to Chelsea as coach
Chelsea have won their first four games under Sarri and Luiz has played in all of them. So he will be very important for everybody here.

Abel Sanchez, who has trained Golovkin at his gym in the San Bernardino Mountains outside Los Angeles since 2011, agrees.

For his part, Alvarez says he too will adopt a different tactical approach.

"And if he fights him, he's going to get knocked out".

In what is already being billed as a potential fight of the century, both Golovkin and Alvarez have been extremely vocal in the build-up to the clash about the other fighter, as well as how they see the fight planning out. "He would have got knocked out the first time, but he decided to make it a track meet".

In August, William Hill's Nevada sportsbook took a pair of $50,000 bets on Alvarez, contributing to lopsided overall action on the underdog heading into fight weekend.

At 36 years old, Golovkin remains a ferocious operator who prides himself on a delivering a ruthless style of front-foot boxing that has seen him become one of the sport's most exciting names. "I think so, yes, I'll bring my belt back home".
