Watch Canelo vs GGG 2 Online Free – Live Stream!
After months of back-and-forth accusations, insults, and name-calling, Middleweight greats Gennady Golovkin and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez will planning to finally settle their score TONIGHT (Sat., Sept. 15, 2018) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, having actually gone to an exceptionally questionable draw in 2017.
The card will similarly feature increasing star and WBO Super Welterweight champ Jaime Munguia against Brandon Cook, David Lemieux versus Spike O’Sullivan in a Middleweight slugfest, and Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez wanting to revive his profession opposite former title opposition Moises Fuentes. I tried to be poetic about the last fight, which genuinely seemed like a special event, but after the delays, trash talk, performance-enhancing drug (PED) shenanigans, it’s difficult to muster up the same interest.
So let’s simply go the more standard route:
Gennady “GGG” Golovkin
Record: 38-0-1, 34 KO
Last Five Fights: Vanes Martirosyan (KO-2) Canelo Alvarez (Split Draw), Daniel Jacobs (UD), Kell Brook (TKO-5), Dominic Wade (KO-2).
Substantial Victories (aside from those mentioned above): David Lemieux, Curtis Stevens, Matthew Macklin, Grzegorz Proksa.
Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.
Record: 49-1-2, 34 KO.
Last Five Fights: Gennady Golovkin (Split Draw), Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (UD), Liam Smith (KO-9), Amir Khan (KO-6), Miguel Cotto (UD).
Significant Victories (other than those discussed above): Erislandy Lara, Austin Trout.
First off: Golovkin absolutely should have the win the very first time out. Though Alvarez found success in bursts, Golovkin’s unrelenting jab managed the middle rounds by a reasonable margin. The 114-114 scorecard (see it) extended the limits of validity, while Adalaide Byrd’s 118-110 Canelo score was among the worst in current memory.
That may not sound too outright, however this being boxing, there are plenty of horrific cards in current memories to compare it to.
Despite the evaluating shenanigans and Golovkin being a year more detailed to 40 this time, I’m positive he earns the win this time for 2 specific reasons. The first is that he entered the very first fight with a doubtful gameplan, while Canelo carried out a great one, and still need to have triumphed.
The most bizarre feature of that very first fight was Golovkin’s reticence to go to the body. He’s flattened numerous challengers by punishing their bellies and his body attack is an important part of his ring-cutting. Canelo, on the other hand, did an excellent job of stymieing Golovkin’s larger punches and landing consistent shots to the body. Regardless of this, Golovkin’s jab still won him the day, and with the experience of that very first fight behind him, I expect to see a far more effective master plan.
Canelo will have that experience also, but he currently battled as much as the very best of his abilities the very first time and it wasn’t enough.
The other crucial factor is that Canelo, regardless of connecting with some genuinely amazing shots, never managed to even faze “GGG.” At one point, he landed a sweeping right-hand man that looked amongst the hardest blows he’s ever tossed and it had absolutely no result. Golovkin enters this fight understanding that Canelo can not hurt him, which ought to translate to even greater offending output.
Even if Canelo is one of the few who can endure Golovkin’s hellacious power and stay on his feet, the Kazakh’s implacability and ramrod jab should be every bit as reliable as they were previously. Anticipate a more one-sided affair this time as Golovkin re-adds his wicked liver shot to his toolbox. One judge will most likely still kip down a mysterious card, this being boxing, however justice gets served this later evening.
Forecast: Golovkin by KO.
