Canelo Alvarez Training For 1st Round KO In Gennady Golovkin Rematch

Ed Mulholland  HBO

Twelve months of steadily simmering acrimony reaches boiling point here Saturday when world middleweight king Gennady Golovkin faces off against Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in their long-awaited Las Vegas rematch. The controversial decision set the stage for this weekend's rematch at T-Mobile Arena.

That showed at Friday's weigh-in, when the two fighters had to be separated in their only face-to-face appearance before the fight.

A more aggressive approach from Alvarez, however, may well play into Golovkin's hands.

Golovkin and his team have contended that they simply don't believe him. "I know it's going to be a tough fight".

That means they won't have a staredown until the final instructions before the first bell rings.

Canelo Alvarez (left) may not be capable of finishing off Gennady Golovkin, but the champion's camp is careful that a clean, lucky punch could result in an upset. "Saturday night, there will be no escape. Gennady has trained and is ready to shoot the works on Saturday night".

"For the most part, we did a good job in the first fight", said Alvarez, who still insists he won at least seven rounds. He said he just got excited by the moment.

Canelo: I got excited from seeing all the fans it motivated me to do that right now.

"After the first fight I said, "thank you for the fight, it was a great fight".

Members of both entourages quickly got between the two fighters to head off a physical confrontation after Alvarez appeared to rush towards Golovkin, who didn't flinch. He will make his second title defense against Brandon Cook (20-1, 13 KOs), 32, of Toronto, who weighed 153.2 pounds.

"I want to punish him", said Golovkin, 38-0-1 with 34 knockouts. They have trash-talked with abandon leading up to the fight and almost came to blows when they faced off and had to be separated.

His record of 49-1-2 with 34 knockouts includes victories over Shane Mosley, Austin Trout, Erislandry Lara, Miguel Cotto and Amir Khan, all world champions.

Regardless, he was suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission before being handed a six-month ban, backdated from February, forcing him to pull out of the agreed rematch with Golovkin.

Yet while Alvarez was able to frustrate Golovkin, he did little in the way of meaningful damage. Alvarez probably will earn around $40 million and Golovkin around $30 million. However, each will earn tens of millions overall due to their percentages of the profits from an event that could generate nine figures.
