Boxing Odds: Gennady Golovkin a -155 favorite vs. Canelo Alvarez 9/13/17

Golovkin ready to hit the boxing jackpot in Las Vegas

This clash is being touted by boxing experts as the biggest clash in the 160-pound division since the historic night 30 years ago when "Sugar" Ray Leonard defeated "Marvelous" Marvin Hagler via what was a controversial split decision. I want this for my people, my team, for my country.

Now comes the real fight - and what a fight it will be.

Saunders, who hasn't boxed since last December, said: "I signed to fight both Golovkin and Canelo, but none of them have come off".

He survived eight fights in his first year as a pro, went the full, brutal 12 rounds at just past his 17 birthday and had completed a staggering 34 bouts while still a teenager. Pacquiao's main weakness are counter punchers and with Golovkin he is even more limited he doesn't have the speed of the wild punching Filipino fighter, instead he moves slowly forward and applies constant pressure with no defense, he is so predictable. Canelo and Billy Joe could use their feet and fight off the back-foot to make life hard for me.

It is worth noting that some critics have argued that Canelo's failure to knockout a completely outclassed Chavez Jr suggests that he lacks power above his usual weight of 154lbs. "But that's what makes for a great fight". The fight was announced in May, before Mayweather-McGregor was finalized.

The next boxing super fight is here.




So, who wins? The answer is: we do - the fans who have been longing for two champions at the top of their game to risk everything and fight each other for the glory of being the best, without the need for trash talk, without intervention from promoters.

According to the latest oddsmakers, Golovkin is favored to win this fight, as he has odds of -155 to prevail, while Alvarez is listed with a money line of +125 to prevail.

Saul Alvarez is flying the flag for Mexico, a country that loves their boxing. He does beer commercials with Sylvester Stallone and has been a steady pay-per-view draw, with his 2013 loss to Mayweather checking in as the fourth-most watched pay-per-view of all time.

All but four of Golovkin's wins have come by knockout, but Canelo - whose only defeat in 51 previous professional appearances came against Floyd Mayweather Jr - is no stranger to stopping his opponents early. It's a huge risk for both, but the rewards should be good, too, with purses north of $10 million.

A victory on Saturday would take him to just one behind the middleweight record 20 held by Bernard Hopkins.

What are the best bets for this exciting fight? It's the best against the best in their prime in a fight fans have been clamouring to see.
