The controversy surrounding the fight has been well publicized after Canelo failed a drugs test earlier this year pushing back the original rematch date.

Golovkin has - mostly through his trainer - tried to goad Alvarez into taking more chances in the rematch, claiming the Mexican star ran in the first fight.

A more aggressive approach from Alvarez, however, may well play into Golovkin's hands.

Only a freak scorecard from judge Adalaide Byrd, who triggered uproar after ruling it 118-110 Alvarez, denied Golovkin a victory. At the same time it produced some hard feelings between the two fighters over Alvarez's contention that it was caused by eating contaminated meat in his native Mexico. "But I'm going in there to knock him out".

Kazakh fighter Golovkin, the defending WBA, WBC and IBO champion, weighed in slightly heavier at 159.6 pounds (72.4 kgs).

Here, we take a closer look at everything you need to know about how to order and watch Canelo vs GGG 2, not to mention a stacked three-fight undercard. Golovkin is 38-0-1 with 33 knockouts.


Golovkin trainer Abel Sanchez hopes he does just that. "He would have got knocked out the first time, but he decided to make it a track meet".

The official purses were confirmed to ESPN on Friday by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, although both fighters are expected to make upwards of tens of millions more after pay-per-view sales.

Golovkin ditched his placid persona, tearing into Canelo on a number of occasions in the press before demanding revised financial terms to fight the two-weight world champion once again.

At 36 years old, Golovkin remains a ferocious operator who prides himself on a delivering a ruthless style of front-foot boxing that has seen him become one of the sport's most exciting names.

"I had a great experience from the first fight", Golovkin said.
