The biggest boxing match of the year will transpire later tonight (Sat., Sept. 16, 2017) live on HBO pay-per-view (PPV) from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, as Ring middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) tries to become the first fighter to dethrone undefeated WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, and IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs).

Outside of Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor, Canelo’s clash with “GGG” is widely considered the most-anticipated boxing match since Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao. That’s because Golovkin has ran through all of his previous 37 opponents and Alvarez sports a phenomenal career record with his only loss coming at the hands of the aforementioned Mayweather. Not to mention both boxers sling heavy leather and hunt for the knockout.
