Gennady Golovkin And Canelo Alvarez Weigh In For Their Undisputed Super Middleweight Title Bout


After stepping on the scales, Gennadiy Golovkin and Eddie Alvarez locked cold eyes.

Alvarez and Golovkin were both surrounded by cheery people Friday outside T-Mobile Arena on The Strip, where they will face off Saturday (8 p.m. ET, DAZN PPV) in a trilogy battle for the undisputed super middleweight belt.

Following an unexpected loss to Dmitry Bivol in May when he competed for a 175-pound belt, Alvarez (57-2-2, 39 KOs) returns to 168 pounds, where he retains all four titles. The 32-year-old is ranked as the fifth-best fighter overall by media.

“I want to finish it inside 12 rounds and I’ll be looking for it from the first round,” said Alvarez, who was wildly cheered by a large contingent on hand for Mexico’s Independence Day weekend. “I know it’s not going to be easy, he’s a great fighter.”

After a storied middleweight career in which he still owns two 160-pound titles, Golovkin, 40, will make his 168-pound debut.

“If you’re really boxing fan, you know who’s the real champion,” said Golovkin, an Olympic silver medalist from Kazakhstan.

In a contentious all-action fight in September 2017, Alvarez and Golovkin (42-1-1, 37 KOs) battled to a draw. After the bout, Golovkin was resolute in his conviction that he had prevailed.

Alvarez prevailed in the rematch by majority decision a year later, although the result was far from convincing.

They’ll finally cross paths again four years later, likely bringing an epic boxing trilogy to a close.

Regarding the undercard, Jesse “Bam” Rodriguez, the front-runner for Fighter of the Year, weighed 114.8 pounds before making his first junior bantamweight title defense.

Israel Gonzalez, his rival, weighed 114.6 pounds.

Rodriguez, 22, has had a breakout year with two stoppage wins over former champions Carlos Cuadras and Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (16-0, 11 KOs).

Gonzalez (28-4-1, 11 KOs) is well known for his competitive loss to Roman Gonzalez (future Hall of Famer) in 2020.
