Canelo says Golovkin is the most risky opponent of his career

Canelo says Golovkin is the most risky opponent of his career

However, that will depend on the progress of the undercard and everything else running smoothly: the most recent pay-per-view event in Las Vegas, featuring McGregor and Mayweather, saw the fight delayed due to problems with the online streaming of the action.

'Without a doubt, our fight on Saturday will be one of the great fights in the history of boxing.

Golovkin, the unbeaten knockout puncher from Kazakhstan, will defend his middleweight titles against Alvarez, Mexico's biggest boxing star.

The contest promises to be a fascinating one, and even the styles of the two fighters seem to complement one another, with Golovkin favouring an aggressive attacking approach and Alvarez preferring to sit back and hit on the counter.

On Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Canelo will once again be fighting against conventional wisdom; when betting opened, Vegas pegged GGG the favorite, and despite some movement on the lines, Canelo still remains a +125 underdog on the money line.

Golovkin added: "I'm old school and I like it when there is just one champion". I don't know, I remember a lot of great champions, like Carlos Monzon, Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, Bernard Hopkins.

"I'm excited and happy that the fight is nearly here". He is the most risky opponent of my career, but I'm ready for him and what's next to come. "Seriously, I don't know, just my training every day, I'm just the same", he said. And Canelo, he's a very special guy.

'I want to win this fight because for me this win will be like a history fight, like Leonard vs. Hagler, ' Golovkin said.
