Is Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin the most anticipated fight in years?

Adalaide Byrd had Álvarez right beating Golovkin 118-110

The pay-per-view starts at 8 p.m. EDT with three undercard fights that will precede the main event. Head to this page before the fight to order the PPV.

Golovkin, 35, and Alvarez, 27, are recognized as the best middleweights in the division and Saunders thinks the champion will prevail this weekend.

Alvarez will be wary of Golovkin's power, as the latter is known for fighting at higher weight limits. He sold over one million buys with his dominant unanimous decision win over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., though his previous victory over Liam Smith only did 300,00 buys. He last fought in the 160lb division back in May 2016 when he claimed a sixth-round KO over Amir Khan.

Only the August 26 PPV that was headlined by Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor is expected to outsell Saturday's PPV this year.

It's the kind of fight Gennady Golovkin has been chasing from the moment he walked off an airplane six years ago to make his new home in Los Angeles.

In the 10-round co-feature, unbeaten featherweights Joseph "JoJo" Diaz, Jr. Lara was forced to withdraw after injuring his back Tuesday, and Rafael Rivera was quickly inserted in his place. However, once the pace steadies and both fighters get into their groove, it'll be a fun fight with both men landing telling shots.

"I believe this is my first step to history", Golovkin said.

Founder of MyMMANews.com - After writing for Ultimate MMA magazine and serving as the editor for U.S. Combat Sports, both of which went on hiatus, I made a decision to venture out on my own and enlist a staff of writers and photographers that could help me achieve my goal of telling stories that would otherwise go untold. Indeed they do, which is one reason Golovkin has had trouble getting fighters in the ring with him. But this is a real fight, with Golovkin's titles at stake and a lot more.

Alvarez is one of the best boxers on the planet and is the right man to be the face of the fight game, but he is not the better fighter at this point in time.

Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) aims to be the first to defeat the current WBA-WBC-IBF champion in Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs).

The Kazakh fans came to support the undefeated Golovkin and shared their impressions with Kazinform's special correspondent in Las Vegas.
