GGG & Canelo Involved In Heated Exchange Ahead Of Rematch

Golovkin, who has held pieces of the middleweight title for eight years, is 38-0-1 with 34 knockouts, and for much of his career knocked out anyone put in the ring with him. "It's going to be an exciting fight and big victory".

It all goes down tomorrow (Sat. September 15, 2018) from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The two middleweights meet exactly a year after their first fight was controversially declared a draw, despite most ringside spectators calling the fight a win for GGG.

The bout was originally slated for May 5th earlier this year.

Israeli forces tear down protest camp near Khan al-Ahmar
Israeli authorities say that village was built illegally, without proper permits, and that it is too close the the major roadway. Khan al-Ahmar's demolition had already been approved by the court in May, which the judges noted in their decision last week.

"These stories about contaminated meat are nonsense", Golovkin said, claiming to have seen injection marks on Alvarez's body in photos of his opponent. And if he can deliver that great performance and he can this fight the way his legacy and his destiny require him to do, then he's made his statement. I defeated the weigh-in, now it's time for me to defeat him on Saturday. "I will prove with my fists that I am the best and Golovkin will eat all of his words and speculation".

A failed drug test by Alvarez didn't just postpone the rematch from the original date in May. He and Alvarez have shared a room only once since the fight was announced - at Wednesday's final prefight press conference - and Alvarez is so upset about Golovkin's comments that he refused to do a traditional faceoff with Triple G for photographers. Of course, given the way one of the most highly-anticipated boxing events in recent memory ended, a rematch was warranted. "I want to punish him for all the bad things that he and his team have done".

"What you saw on the stage was Canelo's world collapsing around him", said Abel Sanchez, Golovkin's trainer, who has vigorously attacked Alvarez for his failed drug tests in the lead-up to the rematch.

The Mexican stand off had dragged on as Canelo Alvarez refused to go to the scales at the weigh in first as agreed. Prior to the fight it was questioned whether Golovkin could get fair treatment in Las Vegas and the scorecards seemed to prove that, with one judge, Adalaide Byrd... Golovkin, 36, a Kazakhstan native fighting out of Santa Monica, California, and seeking to break the all-time middleweight defense record he shares with Bernard Hopkins by retaining his title for the 21st consecutive time, weighed in first and was 159.6 pounds.
