Wait over: Canelo, Triple G eager for September megafight


Once he was in the ring he shook Alvarez's hand and then the two announced that they have agreed to fight on September 16 on HBO pay per view. A light show flickered through the building, while a video showed Golovkin tearing through the middleweight division like foreign water through a tourist.

"GGG, you are next my friend". "The fight is done. But I was inviting him to open up and exchange so we could give the public a handsome fight", he said. "I think part of the fear on the UFC's side is that they'll never see Conor again", he added. But in mere minutes Alvarez had the record-setting crowd of 20,510 eating out of his hand.

"This chapter is over", Alvarez said.

De La Hoya and Golovkin's promoter, K2 Promotions' managing director Tom Loeffler, will be working overtime to get the word out that GGG-Canelo indeed will be the biggest of boxing drama shows.

I'm a bit surprised by the line just because of how each fighter looked most recently.

Nashville Predators: One Playoff Win Away From Franchise History
Steen finished third on the team in scoring during the regular season with 51 points (16 goals, 35 assists) in 76 games. The Blues had drawn first blood on a rebound goal by Dmitrij Jaskin after 5:33 had elapsed in the second period.


The three judges awarded Alvarez all 12 rounds with each scorecard marked 120-108. "It's a closer fight now in my eyes than it was a year ago".

However, because "Canelo" vs. "GGG" will take place on September 16, 2017, it appears that one anticipated fight has taken the place of another.

"Everyone understands this is a tough fight for both of us", said Golovkin, appearing with Alvarez at the news conference after he had answered questions about the Chavez fight.

He was chided for being afraid of the fight - but de la Hoya insisted an Alvarez-Golovkin bout was never in doubt.

"This is the most anticipated fight, right next to Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao, but the difference is this fight will have a lot of action, non-stop action".

Canelo, who met with Gennady Golovkin post fight to announce a September showdown, now improves to 49 wins, 1 defeat, 1 draw, 34 knockouts, while Chavez Jr suffers a major stall in momentum as he reduces to 50 wins, 3 defeats, 1 draw, 32 knockouts.

A confident Canelo didn't bother to sit in his corner after the seventh round of a fight that wasn't almost as competitive as hoped.

"Canelo looked good tonight".

"After all these years, after all the talk of who's better, I'm very happy to demonstrate that regardless of the weight, regardless of the size advantage he had, that I'm the better fighter". "I give him the respect, he went the full 10 rounds". He was just boxing him and looking to win a decision. But no dream match in boxing ever takes place when you really want it to, so we have waited for this match to become a reality for two years. I expect an awesome fight.

"When you have fighters that want to make the best fights it makes the job much easier", De La Hoya said.
