Unified middleweight champion and WBA super-middleweight champion Saul Canelo Alvarez has decided to forgo a September date that would have likely been used for a third fight with rival Gennady GGG Golovkin. While nothing is certain it is very possible that Canelo is eyeing a fight with WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Krusher Kovalev who would have to get past challenger Anthony Yarde in August. Mexican Independence Day is Septembe16th and that weekend is always a big one in boxing. DAZN who broadcasts Canelo’s fights has some options. They can match up GGG with either Demetrius Boo Boo Andrade for Andrade’s WBO middleweight championship. They can also match GGG with Unified super-middleweight champion Callum Mundo Smith. If they can’t match GGG up with either they can match Smith and Andrade. The other option DAZN has is to hold the Anthony AJ Joshua/Andy Destroyer Ruiz rematch that weekend.
Canelo Alvarez beats Rocky Fielding to win the WBA super middleweight championship. Who is next for the new 168-pound champion? Daniel Jacobs would be an easy fight to make. There is always a third bout with Gennady Golovkin. I think those are the two most likely options.
Canelo vs GGG II Done Deal! Just a quick video for you. The Gennady Golovkin/Saul Alvarez rematch is set for September 15th, 2018 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas Nevada.

GGG vs.Vanes Martirosyan Opinion Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying & Be Ok With The Fight. Vanes Martirosyan is by no means an ideal matchup for Gennady Golovkin as a replacement for Saul (Canelo) Alvarez as an opponent on May 5th, 2018. However, in my opinion, considering the circumstances. There isn’t a clearly better option. This is all a result of Canelo either trying to get an advantage and getting caught in the act, or Canelo being completely irresponsible in his choices. Please Subscribe.

My 2 cents (ok maybe more) 1. I scored the fight 8-4 for GGG. I think anything from that to 7-5 favoring Canelo is with in reason. 2. I think Canelo was strongest in the early rounds, and GGG came on in the latter rounds. 4. I had it 3-3 after 6 rounds, but it could have been 6-0 Canelo. I had the second half of the fight 5-1 GGG, but I think a round or two maybe, could have gone to Canelo. (I might have to revise my opinion of scores that I think are within reason to include 8-4 Canelo). 5. I think Canelo’s early movement and body attack keept GGG honest and prevented a body attack in the early rounds. 6. I thought once GGG found his range he started to hurt Canelo. Not enough to drop him, but as the fight progressed he was doing better than Canelo. I think an early round body attack would have set things up. (see thought 5.) 7. Even considering the knockdown. I think Daniel Jacobs did a better job against GGG than Canelo did. I felt that even considering the knockdown, Jacobs had a better argument for winning after 12 rounds than Canelo did. I think Jacobs gives both GGG and Canelo problems that GGG and Canelo don’t give each other, and is a 50/50 fight with either. 8. They are likely to rematch (May 2018). Both Canelo and GGG have too much pride not to. Even though I thought GGG won. I don’t know what changes Canelo should make. I thought he fought a smart fight. I think GGG has to step things up from the start. He has to use a body attack to slow the younger/faster Canelo down. 9. If the rematch is a reset, and the first round is the first round of the second fight. I’m expecting the action in the ring to be very much like the first fight. A close fight that could go either way. If it’s “round 13” . Than I think GGG has momentum and I think he wins with in 8 rounds. 10. I think that what we saw take place in the ring lived up to the hype, but the 118-110 scorecard leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

I think Canelo/GGG is a 50/50 fight. That being said I’m picking GGG to win.
I think in the early going their styles will off set each other. GGG will look to apply pressure behind his battering ram jab. He will be held in check by Canelo’s counter punches which will also be held in check by GGG’s battering ram jab. Judges when in doubt tend to favor the busier boxer. Which in the early-mid rounds will be Canelo. He’s also the “A” side which will also give him an advantage in close rounds. I’m expecting that there are going to be a lot of close rounds that are going to be debated after the fight. GGG’s best argument to win close rounds is to be the aggressor. Like being busier, it’s about creating an illusion of control. I think because of this Canelo is likely to be a head through 3/4 of the fight.
Looking at GGG/Brook, GGG/Jacobs, Canelo/Mayweather and Canelo/Khan. Both GGG and Canelo can be out boxed. While I think both have excellent boxing skills. I don’t think either is as good as the opponents who gave each issues. Don’t expect a 12 round shoutout.
I think Canelo will be the boxer and GGG the pressure fighter. If this fight was fought at light middleweight down. Canelo would box his way to a clear decision. However, starting at middleweight. Size and power starts to make up for skill. I think GGG’s battering ram jab is going to find its target as the rounds progress. Which will open up more shots. I can say with confidence that GGG has one shot stopping power at midddelweight. I can say Canelo is a very good boxer, and has aculmitive punching power at middleweight, but I can’t say based on one fight above light middleweight. (The Cotto fight was at 155 that’s a light middleweight fight).
I think Canelo will land enough punches to win rounds, but not enough to hold GGG off as the fight progresses. I think in the 10th, 11th, or 12th round(s) . GGG is going to drop Canelo. I think if the fight goes to the cards. I think Canelo will be slightly ahead. I would not be surprised by any close decision either way Even a split decision or draw. However I think GGG stops Canelo late in what will be an enjoyable boxing match.
GGG Beats Canleo But It’s A Close Fight. Gennady Golovkin vs. Saul Alvarez Boxing’s next super fight. In reality Andre Ward vs. Sergey Kovalev is going to be a one sided fight in Ward’s favor. The pontional match up of GGG & Canleo. Has instant classic written all over it.
My way to early opinion is that Golovkin will beat Alvarez. It won’t be an easy fight.
