On September 16, 2017 in Las Vegas at the sold out T-Mobile Arena, the pride of Mexico, Saul "El Canelo" Alvarez ( 49-1-1, 34 KO's ), will be clashing, and that is putting it lightly, with Gennady "GGG" Glolovkin (37-0, 33 KO's) who is considered as the best middleweight in the world. This fight will truly be "Mexican Style," something that both are known for and what the fans truly like.
Canelo, who has taken on all fighters who have challenged him, and Golden Boy Promotions have put together what will be the most exciting middleweight fight of the year.
On the line will be the WBC, IBF, IBO World middleweight titles and the WBA Super World middleweight title. And with this, the winner will go down in history as one of the best middleweights in boxing. Canelo, who has never backed down from any boxer, unlike one of his opponents, and Golden Boy Promotions have put together what will be the most exciting middleweight fights of the year, if not, for the ages. It brings back memories of mega fight lore, such as Hagler v The Hitman, Duran v Leonard, and Sugar Ray Robinson, who is considered as the best middleweight of all time.
The fight will be on HBO PPV and will be shown all over the world for memories of boxing fans to remember forever. It is a testament to Canelo and Golden Boy Promotions, who took the challenge to fight the undefeated KO Kazakhstan, GGG, and bring to the boxing world a fight for the ages.
Episode #1 of 24/7 Canelo/Golovkin premieres Saturday, Aug. 26, 2017.
