He's the definition of a living legend. Some have very creative pop-ups that tell you you need to download a video player to watch, or your player is out of date.that isn't true, and none of these streams require anything other than Flash (which 99.9% of you have on your computer already). This one reminds me of waiting for the trilogy of (Carmen) Basilio and (Sugar Ray) Robinson. Utilizing a snapping jab and brutal overhand right, Golovkin dishes out as much damage with his precise combinations as he does with his aggression as an in-fighter.

"I believe this is my first step to history", Golovkin said. Between them they have 86 wins, against only one loss.

Chargin, who considers Robinson the greatest of all time, has been an adviser for Golden Boy Promotions for several years, and thus knows a bit more about Alvarez, Golden Boy's meal ticket, than Golovkin, who has been taken from unknown to the top of his sport by Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions.

Tonight at T-Mobile Arena, I'm expecting Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 knockouts) to emerge with a split-decision victory over three-belt middleweight champion Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs).

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin both tipped the scales at exactly 160 pounds during Friday's weigh-in ahead of their hotly-anticipated clash. But he will have to take my punches too. It could be a long evening, or a short, short evening for Canelo. De La Hoya puffed out his chest and said he would talk with Golovkin's manager/advisor Tom Loeffler, famously telling him to have his phone ready. He executes it better, and from different angles, and it's a very devastating punch. The fight quickly sold out and is expected to do well on HBO pay-per-view, though it will not reach the level of last month's spectacle. There was plenty of needle in the build up, but when the talking stopped it was Alvarez who stood tall, dominating Chavez Jnr before sealing victory by unanimous decision. Now it's getting more powerful.

It's today! Unfortunately you're going to have to stay up until around 4am BST. They get a amusing look on their face and all of a sudden they're on the canvas writhing in pain.

In Golovkin, you have a prototypical boxer of this generation - fast, powerful, adaptable, resilient and extremely intelligent. After the fight, Alvarez invited Golovkin into the ring as the early seeds for this weekend's contest were sewn. The fans have been asking for this fight for years.

"This is a fight the people have waited for a long time, and I think it's of the same calibre and quality". I want to box for five years more – maybe until 40, ” he added.

"Boxing needs this fight and I'm glad I was able to make it". I learned a lot from that fight.
