Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez's biggest fights

Here, Sportsmail takes a look at the two fighters' five biggest fights during their careers to date.

I'm veering towards GGG, given his experience in the ring with bigger boxers and his ability to dictate the pace.

To claims that Canelo is going knock him out, "Triple G" was quick to fire back and said he still has a long time left in the sport.

"If it's Canelo it'll be in the States, and if it's Golovkin we may have a chance of staging it in the UK". In the U.S., he fought in New York, California and CT so far.

His 23 opponent enjoyed a long and successful amateur career that included losing to two-weight world champion Badou Jack in the Swedish national championships.

All this isn't to say that Golovkin can't win on points-he did exactly that against Jacobs, showing he can box well in the later rounds he so rarely sees-and Alvarez can't win by stoppage. “I am very excited to be finally fighting in Las Vegas, but I am more excited that it is against Canelo. The energy will be off the charts.

Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez are set to duke it out in Las Vegas to compete in one of the best pure matchups boxing has to offer. "Let me repeat – this is a fight boxing can be proud of".

When reviewing both fighters' most recent efforts respectively, Canelo and GGG failed to show a sense of urgency in attempting to put their individual opponent away. I learned a lot in that fight, ” added the Mexican boxing icon. As such, fans may be wondering if Canelo vs. GGG is on Showtime on Saturday night.

Mayweather broke Rocky Marciano's record with his 50th win over Conor McGregor, where Floyd pocketed over $300 million. But Alvarez packs power, too, and the red-headed Mexican is a savage counterpuncher with a style that should match up perfectly against the onrushing Golovkin.

He has beaten the aged former world champion Glen Johnson and Derek Edwards - the only man to beat the aforementioned Badou Jack in the professional ranks.
