Here’s how to order the Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin fight on pay-per-view, which will take place on Saturday, September 16 in Las Vegas.
It’s finally time for Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Álvarez to get it on.
After years of talk and hype and speculation, undefeated middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) and Canelo Álvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs), who will be fighting at 160 pounds for the first time in his career, are set to do battle this Saturday, September 16, from a sold-out T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Golovkin, who has defended his middleweight crown a staggering 18 times, just two shy of Bernard Hopkins’ record, comes into this fight off a win by unanimous decision over Daniel Jacobs at Madison Square Garden in March, which was the first non-knockout win for GGG since 2008. Canelo is also entering this bout off a win by decision, his also coming in unanimous fashion over Julio César Chávez Jr. at T-Mobile Arena in May.
Immediately following his win over Chávez, Canelo announced that he would be facing Golovkin next and GGG even joined him in the ring and at the post-fight press conference to get the hype train moving as soon as possible. Golden Boy Promotions announced the fight for September 16 and we’re now ready for two of the hardest punchers in boxing to finally get after one another in this highly-anticipated matchup between two of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world.
