Alvarez, Golovkin seek their places in boxing history

Gennady Golovkin faces Saul Alvarez in a 12-round championship of the World held on Saturday September 16 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

While Alvarez, 27, has strengthened both his body and skill, Golovkin, 35, has shown some slips.

The undefeated Golovkin, whose World Boxing Council, World Boxing Association and International Boxing Federation titles will be on the line, said he is expecting the toughest fight of his career against a boxer six years his junior.

'No problem, ' says the world middleweight champion. "I feel something happening when I get hit, but I don't feel power".

"It'll probably be December: that's what we're looking at". Indeed they do, which is one reason Golovkin has had trouble getting fighters in the ring with him.

"We know that in fights, it takes two to tango". "I don't back down", Alvarez said. But it was the first time since 2008 that GGG has failed to knock out an opponent. "The reason it didn't happen was after the fight with Jacobs, they decided that he needed a break". "It's not an easy fight for him or me", Golovkin said. Most definitely. It showed but what I won out of that was the experience.

Around 600 USA troops taking part in military drills in Japan are said to be "ready" to react to any provocation from North Korea. The statement says both leaders stressed that the worldwide community has condemned North Korea's "provocations".

If Alvarez can stay out of range of Golovkin's jab and stymie any of Triple G's forward marches in close, he has the timing and skill to counter Golovkin and bank enough rounds to get the judges to award him a victory.
