While those in each fighters' camps have claimed they foresee their guy wearing down the other and dealing the loser his first knockdown - Alvarez has said he's dreamed nightly of such an outcome - the more likely scenario is that neither man yields.
"Let me repeat - this is a fight boxing can be proud of". "It all depends on who lands the punch that defines the fight and I think Gennady is going to do that", said Abel Sanchez, Golovkin's trainer.
For the first time since Manny and Floyd elected to "get it on" in May of 2015, fight fans across the globe will once again experience that incomparable feeling of "butterflies" in their stomachs when current Middleweight kingpin Gennady "GGG" Golovkin finally squares-off against lineal champ and Mexican favorite Saul "Canelo" Alvarez this Saturday night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Alvarez is one of the best boxers on the planet and is the right man to be the face of the fight game, but he is not the better fighter at this point in time.
The biggest occasion Canelo has faced also resulted in his one and only defeat, when a 23-year-old Alvarez took on Mayweather at the top of his game.

This will be the 10th time that Alvarez has boxed in Las Vegas, where he has been built into the star to replace Mayweather. Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) will now be fighting as a full-fledged 160-pound middleweight after his lopsided unanimous decision victory over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. on May 6.
Canelo on the other hand shares some of his adversary's strengths, including power, chin and being able to persevere through some rough patches in his fights. "He took a beating before and if he quit before when there were three belts on the line, he will certainly quit when there's one belt on the line", said Saunders. Mayweather fought at 154 lbs, but Canelo is now a big middleweight, and his heft might balloon to 180 plus come fight night with GGG.
Both fighters while similar in their approach and styles have very different strengths and attributes.
