It might not be the fight that will capture the attention of mainstream sports fans, but the bout between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez on Saturday night is appointment viewing for combat sports fans and the kind of event that can restore a bit of faith in boxing.
"All this stuff people were saying about Canelo that he didn't want to fight (Golovkin) and everything, Canelo would have fought this guy two years ago, anytime they wanted". There's plenty at stake going into Saturday's bout, the least of which isn't the crown for arguably the best active boxer on the planet.
The fight's undercard starts at 6 p.m., and it's also at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The issue big fight promoters are running into though are with Facebook Live, Periscope and YouTube Live. He's the most risky fighter I've faced.

How can I stream Canelo vs GGG in the UK?"That is a thorn I have and I would like to take that thorn out". "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. If it happens, great. Was I too young? "I'm ready to show how a true Mexican fights", Canelo told BoxNation. "I wish it was an hour to the fight instead of having to wait until tomorrow". I learned a lot in that fight, added the Mexican boxing icon. In fact, Canelo vs. GGG might actually be the better boxing match.
Both fighters while similar in their approach and styles have very different strengths and attributes.
Mayweather broke Rocky Marciano's record with his 50th win over Conor McGregor, where Floyd pocketed over $300 million. Fans doubted "The Golden Boy", not wanting to wait another 15 months for the fight between two of the hardest punchers in the sport. For him to be enticed to come back and face Canelo, the same amount should be involved. While Canelo's size, resiliency and counter punches will make it challenging for Golovkin to find the finish, its GGG's sustained pressure and punching volume that damage Alvarez enough to lead to the stoppage, but not before Golovkin's chin is put to the ultimate test. But when money talks everybody listens.

Mr Goodfellow said he had "no idea" about any Security Intelligence Service probe, while Mr English did not comment. If you define those cadets or students as spies, yes, then I was teaching spies .
