Mexican Canelo is the crowd favorite and is looking to prise the undisputed title from long-time Kazakh champ Golovkin, feared the world over for his disproportionately solid punching power, in a matchup being touted as the 'fight of the decade'.
"I remember watching on my TV and just saying wow", Golovkin said.
WHY GGG CAN LOSE: This is the biggest fight of Golovkin's career.
Xiaomi wants to take on Apple's MacBook Pro
The mid-range option drops the RAM to 8GB, while the entry-level Mi Notebook Pro also drops the processor down to a Core i5 8250U. Moving on, the keyboard is backlit and the company has claimed that the keyboard area is 19 percent larger than the MacBook Pro .
GGG also has many questions to answer in his fight with the Mexican star Alvarez. He wasn't completely convincing in his last fight but he started ferociously, as he always does, knocked Jacobs down and it looked to go the same way as all his fights but "The Miracle Man" woke up and started boxing back. "I will enjoy it", Golovkin said. But it's a superfight just the same and may be more important than others in recent memory simply for the timeless message it presents: That it's essential for the best to fight the best, regardless of danger, in order to uphold the overall health of the sport. "I'm prepared", added Canelo.
The fight did take longer than fans - and Golovkin - would have liked, as contentious negotiations sidetracked the fight. He debuted at 15 years old, and has fought 12 current or former champions over that span. Golovkin on the other had has fought five current or former champions in his career. But Lemieux and Canelo are very different fighters and GGG will still have to be prepared to make adjustments and avoid Canelo's best punches, the left hook to the body and overhand right. In fact, one can argue that the delay has only made it feel like a bigger event, allowing Alvarez's elite skill set at age 27 to catch up with his vast popularity. In fact, this will be Golovkin's first fight in Las Vegas. I prepared myself for the knockout. I think GGG's experience will give him an extremely slight edge and I would not be shocked to be wrong on this one.

Shevchenko, who was born in Kyrgyzstan and has strong ties to Peru, immediately expressed her dissatisfaction with the scores. A flyweight contender bout between Henry Cejudo and Wilson Reis was moved to the pay-per-view card, which begins at 7 p.m.
Their last two fights have made me resolutely believe it is a Canelo victory.
"I'd like to wish all the middleweights fighting this weekend the very best of luck!"
