A year later, Golovkin, Alvarez meet with bad intentions

GGG v Canelo

Only a freak scorecard from judge Adalaide Byrd, who triggered uproar after ruling it 118-110 Alvarez, denied Golovkin a victory.

Luckily for Golovkin, he hasn't had to listen.

Much has also been made of the judges for the upcoming super fight, after the performance of the officials came in for ridicule and criticism after their first fight in September of a year ago.

But the Kazakh champion's tilt at the record books has become a footnote in a build-up dominated by the furor that erupted when Alvarez failed two drug tests in February, scuppering a planned May 5 rematch.

First up, pound-for-pound king and former four-division world champion Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez makes his eagerly awaited return against experienced Mexican warrior Moises "Moi" Fuentes in a ten-round super flyweight bout.

A more aggressive approach from Alvarez, however, may well play into Golovkin's hands. But he went 12 tough rounds against Daniel Jacobs before going the distance with Alvarez, and there are some in boxing who believe his skills are eroding at the age of 36.

Here, we take a closer look at everything you need to know about how to order and watch Canelo vs GGG 2, not to mention a stacked three-fight undercard.

However, it would only be a formality; a celebration of their love alongside their close friends and family members. The site reports "Several eyewitnesses say the two were inside the Marriage Bureau in NYC and Justin was emotional".

Tomorrow's second meeting is expected to exceed that number thanks to a wild 12 months which included Alvarez failing a pair of drug tests which forced the original May 5 date to be postponed. He's tried to bait Alvarez by claiming the Mexican fighter ran in the first fight and refused to engage Triple G, when in reality all Alvarez did was rely on his counter punching strength against the big puncher from Kazakhstan, who lives in Los Angeles.

"At the moment I put him in the top five, and the only reason I don't put him any higher is because he needs that fight that people recognize, the signature fight or legacy fight", Sanchez said.

He has been tested repeatedly in the weeks leading up to Saturday's fight and insists, "I've turned the page", on his positive test and suspension.

The controversial scorecards ended into a majority draw decision. But both fighters seem determined not to let it be decided by the ringside judges.

"This fight means a lot to me because of all that has happened and all that has been said", Alvarez said.

Mexico's Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 knockouts) meanwhile came in at 159.4 pounds, well within the 160lb limit.

"I think this fight could be it". "It's a real fight, a real war".
