The final press conference for the Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin mega fight will be live streamed on YouTube video by HBO Boxing.

What are the best bets for this exciting fight? So boxing observers and analysts can just hypothesize how the fight would unfold based on the protagonists' recent fights and training videos. Alvarez, whose only loss was at the hands of Floyd Mayweather Jr., is coming off a lopsided win over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. last month in Las Vegas. I'm just more focused.

Even with his high output, he is one of the most accurate punchers in the sport.

"We're both going to fight a fight where anybody can win by knockout", Alvarez said. "I'm prepared", added Canelo. Skills could favour a Canelo victory with the right game plan but the power lies with Golovkin.

Golovkin, however, has finished his opponents much faster than Alvarez.


"I can assure you that I will do my part and I will do my best to give you all a handsome fight". Well, that did not happen as both fighters showed too much respect for each other's power.

WHY GGG CAN LOSE: This is the biggest fight of Golovkin's career. The decision was never in question - a complete shutout, with all three judges agreeing on a 120-108 scorecard, although many believe Canelo should have stopped his compatriot inside the distance.

Saunders, 28, makes the second defence of his WBO middleweight title against Willie Monroe Jr in London on Saturday night and is Sky Bet's 4/11 favourite to win the fight, with Monroe Jr 9/4 and the draw 28/1.

He added: "I am a big middleweight and don't want to give my advantage away, but there is not a super-middleweight that I fear".

"On Friday he got a call about 12 that she was going to the hospital and I told him to go home but he said, "No we are going to train at 3pm".
