Gennady Golovkin has amusing comment about his 'GGG' alter ego

Canelo Alvarez's physique change hasn't gone unnoticed by Gennady Golovkin

WHY GGG CAN LOSE: This is the biggest fight of Golovkin's career.

The highly anticipated middleweight showdown between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) and Gennady 'GGG (Triple G)' Golovkin (37-0-0, 33 KOs) to decide who will reign supreme as the undisputed king of the division is now only days away from captivating the sporting world from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Using lateral movement, GGG stalks his opponents to the ropes or corners, where many of his knockouts take place.

Golovkin, the unbeaten knockout puncher from Kazakhstan, will defend his middleweight titles against Alvarez, Mexico's biggest boxing star.

At 35, Golovkin is eight years the senior of Canelo, but the Kazakh insists he is feeling as good as ever and believes he can continue to box into his fifth decade.

Teva's stock rockets to biggest gain since 1984
Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Limited ( TEVA)'s current session activity disclosed discouraging signal for active traders . Mizuho Securities Usa Inc increased Teva Pharmaceutical Inds Ltd ( TEVA ) stake by 185.23% reported in 2016Q4 SEC filing .

With fans having now moved on from the overhyped, overmatched saga that was Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor, they can expect a proper contest this time around, with two multiple-time world champion boxers at the peak of their powers set to go toe-to-toe in a bout so evenly matched that predictions among experts are widely varied and often against the bookmakers' favoured outcome. Canelo and Billy Joe could use their feet and fight off the back-foot to make life hard for me. "When I fought Mayweather, I was 23 years old". While the recent light heavyweight fights between Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev held the same rare distinction in potentially offering the same prize, neither fight was as in demand as this one. Almost every big bout one can think of isn't a ideal fit in one form or another.

While Mayweather's run atop the sport produced singular nights of big business, his dominance and advantageous matchmaking prevented a run of evenly matched fights where the prize at stake was equally as big to both participants. This is a fight boxing can be proud of. If you liked Anthony Joshua's fight with Wladimir Klitchsko then you'll love watching this one!

According to CBS Sports, "Saturday's fight represents something far more important to the sport than any carnival sideshow can provide (no matter how entertaining or lucrative said fight turned out to be)".

Whether it's Canelo or Golovkin, or even Billy Joe, I would fight anyone who has got that IBF title if I'm given the shot. 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.
