Gennady Golovkin (aka “GGG”) meets Canelo Alvarez September 16, 2017 in the career-defining fight he’s been waiting for his whole career. Golovkin, the most dominant middleweight of the last 20 years, is certainly one of the best boxers of his generation, having defended his middleweight title 18 times over the past seven years. This fight is being billed as the super fight his resume has been lacking, as many opponents have avoided climbing into the ring against him over the span of his career.
Canelo Alvarez is moving up in weight to fight GGG, and there are doubts that he will have enough in the tank to overcome Golovkin. It’s not a common thing for a fighter to move up in weight to take on a unified champion after all. Canelo is typically a good counter boxer who will fight in bursts and then take a break to recover his stamina. GGG, on the other hand, is an aggressive fighter who will do little to avoid taking hits if he can land a few of his own. He is relentless, with a monstrous chin and the will and stamina to fight for three full minutes at a time without stopping.
