Canelo vs. Golovkin 2 - "The REMATCH"

Canelo vs. Golovkin 2 -

Very short face-off as Canelo rushed at GGG and had to be restrained.

As fans, we were happy because we get to see the fight again.

Here's how to order on your TV platform. A more stationary Alvarez, of course, would make him easier to hit, but Alvarez is more comfortable as a boxer and counter puncher and used those skills to his advantage in the first fight.

The co-main event of the evening also has championship implications as Canadian Brandon Cook challenges Jaime Munguia for the WBA Jr middleweight title.

A live preview show (9pm-9.30pm) and subsequent build-up to the first fight (11.30pm-12.45am) with BT Sport pundits David Haye, Steve Bunce and Richie Woodhall will be available to all existing BT Sport subscribers on BT Sport 1 HD, BTSport.com (via this link) and the BT Sport app.

Many at ringside thought he won that bout, but Alvarez pulled off a draw by winning the late rounds as the 36-year-old Golovkin seemed to fade. They do so Saturday night on the Las Vegas Strip not as the gentleman fighters they portrayed themselves to be then, but as bitter rivals who legitimately seem to dislike each other.

The result was met with indignation by boxing fans and pundits alike.

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

Canelo has contended that the failed drugs test was due to contaminated meat he ingested by accident in his home country of Mexico.

Not wanting to risk a period of inactivity, he remained determined to fight on May 5th, taking on former world title challenger Vanes Martirosyan in a hastily-arranged clash at the StubHub Center in Los Angeles. Golovkin is 38-0-1 with 33 knockouts.

Tonight, Gennady "GGG" Golovkin and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez face off in a rematch of their thrilling draw in Las Vegas.

Sanchez said a decisive victory for Golovkin will cement his place amongst the greatest middleweights in boxing history, delivering a signature victory that his otherwise stellar CV lacks.
