WHAT TIME IS CANELO ALVAREZ VS. GENNADIY GOLOVKIN 3 TONIGHT? LIST OF GLOBAL MAIN EVENT RINGWALK TIMES PLUS CHANNEL AND STREAM INFO
Who will come out on top when Canelo Alvarez faces Gennadiy Golovkin for a third time?
Canelo Alvarez and Gennadiy Golovkin will meet for a third time this weekend with both fighters promising dominant performances.
Eight years younger than the 40-year-old Golovkin, this bout represents a chance for Alvarez to reassert himself as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. A win here will help erase the ignominy of that loss to Bivol. Yet this is also Golovkin’s last stand. If he does not emerge victorious, then he will not find himself in another opportunity like this headline bout. A win, however, puts the wheels in motion for a fourth fight (and hopefully we won’t have to wait four years for the rematch).
The pair first met in 2017 and although many believed Golovkin had done enough, the ringside judges scored the bout a draw. Canelo improved and took the win the following year, but Golovkin still felt like he was the victor.
The pair have gone in different directions since their second meeting, but they'll renew hostilities on Saturday.
Canelo Alvarez defends the undisputed super middleweight title tonight against Gennadiy Golovkin.
Alvarez won their last bout in September of 2018, permanently shattering Golovkin’s undefeated record. That was a rematch of their first meeting, which took place a year prior to that, and ended in a draw.
Now, four years later and 24 rounds into the competition among the eternal rivals, comes the long-awaited trilogy bout.
Oddsmakers have Alvarez (57-2-2, 39 knockouts) as the overwhelming favorite. He is coming off a rare loss last May, defeated by Dmitry Bivol by a unanimous decision. That took place in the 175-pound weight class, but he is now back to 160 against Golovkin (42-1-1, 37 knockouts). The first two bouts were incredibly close, but age and incentive both stand as an advantage here for Alvarez.gfjhfh
