On Saturday, November 2nd, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (52-1-2, 35KOs) will move up two weight classes to face off against WBO Lightheavyweight Champion, Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (34-3-1, 29KOs) at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV.
Most cases point to Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (52-1-2, 35 KOs), Vasiliy Lomachenko (14-1-0, 10 KOs), and Terence Crawford (35-0-0, 26 KOs) as the top 3 (in no particular order). Let’s take a look at each boxer to see how they stack up…
It’s kind of funny because GGG was originally stripped of his IBF title for not fighting then mandatory challenger, Derevyanchenko, as a late replacement for Canelo.
Gennady Golovkin (39-1, 35KOs) was back in full force yesterday when he knocked out Steve Rolls (19-1, 10KOs) in the fourth round. It was definitely a tune-up fight for Golovkin that was meant to showcase his skill in his DAZN debut. Now with that fight out of the way, who should be next for the Kazakh slugger?
On Saturday night we finally saw the long awaited showdown between Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez (52-1-2, 35 KOs) and Daniel ‘Miracle Man’ Jacobs (35-3, 29 KOs) and to some fight fans the clash did not live up to expectations.
It wasn’t too long ago that Canelo was universally loved in the boxing world.
These are two of the best middleweights in the world getting ready for war, in what should be a fight of the year candidate. Boxing fans should be in for a treat!
Daniel ‘Miracle Man’ Jacobs (35-2, 29 KOs) will face Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez (51-1-2, 35 KOs) this Saturday. It is a highly-anticipated fight that promises high-level action but for Jacobs, this is hardly the biggest fight of his life.
Sergiy “The Technician” Derevyanchenko (12-1 10KOs) will look to get back on track Saturday when he meets Jack “Golden Jack” Culcay (25-3 13KOs). The fight will take place Saturday, April 13 at The Armory in Minneapolis, Minnesota. They will clash to decide who holds the number one contender spot in the IBF rankings at Middleweight. It’s a high stakes fight, making it very interesting.
The moment we have all been waiting for – finally hearing who former unified middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (38-1-1, 34KOs) will fight in June. A fight against Brandon “Cannon” Adams (21-2, 13KOs) has been announced for June 8th.
Former unified Middleweight Champion, Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (38-1-1 34KOs), has signed an official 3 year, 6 fight deal with DAZN. The deal will likely lock him up for the rest of his career.
