The real thing in boxing is Canelo vs Triple G

Now the 26-year-old has told Golovkin: "I think Canelo will beat you but I am very, very interested in facing the victor of your fight in America". Whitnall I'm so first drawings look you know as the will to's exactly what to do. you know that some forget. the masterplan is like a musician professor musician. masterplan is the greatest for. you the score you know it's gonna be ideal to Mexican flawless acoustic with. its content across the nation's debt in stocks. but to get it others. and yet also given the range of intricate ability of up to the mechanical music. given the range of freedom. the new in planes bills notes. and you as a conductor of such an awesome time.

The boxing pay-TV channel, owned by promoter Frank Warren, will show the long-awaited fight between the two pound-for-pound greats on 16 September at in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs), 35, insists his fight with Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) is bigger and of more significance than Mayweather-McGregor, which he sees as a "circus show".

The announcement of Floyd Mayweather's Vegas return against UFC fighter Conor McGregor last week had threatened to overshadow the Alvarez-Golovkin superfight scheduled for three weeks later. I'm sure I'll win, but that does not mean it will be an easy fight.

Alvarez gave his brutally honest assessment of Golovkin's performance in his first 12-round fight before a press conference Tuesday night in Manhattan.

"This is the most hard", said Golovkin. He has a good team, and a good promoter. I know him, he's the best. He's a big puncher.

"There were a lot of conditions from the WBC and a timeline, they put conditions in the purse split", said Alvarez through a translator.

"I didn't even recognise him when he stood up and started saying things".

'I can have a rematch clause but I don't want to leave doubt so that there is a rematch clause [needed], I don't want controversy, I want to be the clear victor'.

"Everyone knows Conor is not a boxer", he said.

"I know for a fact that what you have seen from Gennady has been wonderful and what you have seen from Canelo has been incredible". "Canelo vs. Golovkin is the only fight 100 per cent guaranteed to deliver a tremendous fight".

But promoter Oscar De La Hoya was convinced on Tuesday's promotional trip to NY that there remained a huge appetite for this September showdown.
