They’re back in action again! Tonight (Saturday, September 15th) WBA-WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs) puts his titles at stake against Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) in a rematch of their thrilling but controversial September 2017 clash, which ended in a split draw. Don’t worry, Adelaide Byrd isn’t judging this time around. It is nevertheless a fight millions want to watch again, as these are two of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world, and there’s more heat behind this one due to Golovkin’s animosity towards Canelo for his drug test failure for clenbuterol.
