Like most boxing fans, former junior welterweight world titleholder Amir Khan is looking forward to seeing Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin battle for the unified middleweight world championship on Saturday night (HBO PPV, 8 ET) at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Gennady Golovkin comes into his super-bout with Saul Alvarez boasting an unbeaten record, but Canelo is promising to put an end to that in the most emphatic fashion. "It's a fight that all the fans and all the media have been waiting for for years", he told the crowd at the MGM Grand. We know that in fights, it takes two to tango. Golovkin will bring out the best in me'. And that's what I'm going to do this Saturday. I remember a lot of great champions, like Carlos Monzon, Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, Bernard Hopkins.
"It's unbelievable to be in Las Vegas". As we get closer to the fight, the main point of conversation has shifted from post-Mayweather-McGregor residue to the big question: who will win? And that's when I turn into Triple G. It's not that I'm mean, or angry. I've been focused like always with my training in this camp. I've prepared like I've never prepared before, to look for the knock-out.
'This fight's for you; this fight's for all the fans who have been asking for it. "This fight has the potential to be a modern classic, and I do think it will live up to the hype". "I will enjoy it". "I've wanted him because of the Cotto fight when he became the mandatory challenger".
"This is without doubt the boxing event of 2017, and I am delighted that Nicola has the chance to showcase her skills on such a huge bill", added Adams' promoter Frank Warren. I'm going to do and use whatever I need to be one step ahead of Gennady in the ring. "That ends Saturday night".
