THE ‘freak show’ is over and the real fight of the year is here.

Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather Jr captured the world’s attention and played out pretty much how most boxing experts predicted.

Golovkin vs Canelo
But now comes the real fight — and what a fight it will be.

Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez against Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin is as good as it gets in the Sweet Science, a sport that is in the midst of a renaissance of sorts. They meet on Sunday (AEST) in a middleweight title clash as highly anticipated by boxing purists as was McGregor’s challenge of Mayweather to UFC fans.

Two fighters who both rank high on anyone’s pound-for-pound list. One loss between them, with Golovkin’s three middleweight belts on the line. And unlike Mayweather, they knock people out.

It shapes up as the most anticipated fight of the year in boxing.

It’s not too much of a stretch to say it might be the best middleweight clash since Marvelous Marvin Hagler and Tommy Hearns engaged in their three-round classic more than 30 years ago.

Styles really do make fights, and these are two fighters with explosive styles.

“We’re both going to fight a fight where anybody can win by knockout,” Alvarez said. “We both have the power to win by knockout. But that’s what makes for a great fight.”

It’s the best against the best in their prime in a fight fans have been clamouring to see — and there will be no excuses no matter which way it goes.


The event is broadcast live in Australia via Main Event pay-per-view, with coverage starting at 10am AEST on Sunday, September 17. The fight costs $A39.95. Subscribe HERE.


The fight will be held at Las Vegas’ 20,000-capacity T-Mobile Arena.

The fighters are expected to take the ring between midday and 1pm AEST, dependant on undercard fights.


The fight, billed and titled as Supremacy, will decide the undisputed king of boxing’s middleweight division, with the WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, Ring magazine, and lineal championships all on the line.

Golovkin currently holds the WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, and IBO middleweight titles.

Alvarez, who has fought recently at light middleweight and catchweight, held the WBC middleweight title before vacating it last year and will put his Ring magazine middleweight title on the line.
