With Saul "Canelo" Alvarez defeating Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. via unanimous decision on Saturday evening, the former successfully set up yet another long-awaited matchup, a looming bout with Gennady "GGG" Golovkin.
With the world of combat sports bracing itself for a seemingly inevitable fight between all-time great boxer Floyd Mayweather and UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor, painstaking debates between fans of both crafts as to the quality of striking in MMA are commonplace. What could be more agreeable to modern boxing fans than a real battle of skill and courage between two throwback gladiators who more than merely want to win; they would rather die than lose.
A week after Anthony Joshua stopped Wladimir Klitschko in the 11th round of a thrilling heavyweight bout in front of 90,000 fans at London's Wembley Stadium, the sport staged another big fight.

Speaking to reporters after the fight, White said, "We just lost our date to "Canelo" and 'GGG, ' but good, that's a good fight". I knew this was going to be a nightmare to get done, White said, "if it can even be done". "Floyd wants this fight and we want to try and make it, so we'll see what happens", continued White. "I thought I was going to showcase myself as a fighter that could throw punches, but he just wouldn't do it". As it said in this space before the fight, if Chavez was weakened by the dramatic weight loss, he would be at Canelo's mercy due to the simple fact that inside the ring Alvarez does everything better.
He squashed Julio Cesar Chavez Jr like a mosquito, winning every round, refusing to sit on his stool between the bells and hitting Chavez Jr with a few quite sublime shots. Golovkin appears to have a sketchy idea of how to fight like some of the Mexican boxing greats. Promoter Oscar De La Hoya likened it to Mayweather-Pacquiao, only this super-fight would live up to expectations. Both fighters weighed 164 on Friday, and both declined to be weighed on fight night. He is 40 years old and fighting Golovkin or Alvarez wouldn't happen until early 2018.
Despite possessing a mixed martial arts record of 21 wins from 24 fights, including 18 knock-outs, McGregor is considered the heavy underdog against Mayweather who is 49-0 in his boxing career. As you can see every single fight Canelo is growing as a fighter and Golovkin, he's a tough guy. "I mean the odds are in favor of GGG already so people are counting him out, Canelo". "After Canelo and Golovkin fight, go after the victor". It's hard to see him losing back-to-back fights to anyone 154-168 pounds.
