Almost a year to the day after fighting to a controversial draw, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) and Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs) will settle their score in a rematch at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Just as he was in the first fight, Golovkin is a slight favorite around the market.
As much as I want to just break down this Saturday’s bout, there’s no getting around what’s transpired since the bell rang at the end of Round 12 last September.
As the bell sounded, the general consensus was that Golovkin had won a close fight. That wasn’t the case.
