He has also shown an ability to fight for 12 rounds and not slow down. Still, his power is his biggest asset. Until the decision win over Jacobs, GGG hadn’t had a decision since June of 2008.
Alvarez, also known as “Canelo” comes into this weekend with a 49-1-1 record with 34 wins by knockout. The one loss was a majority decision to Floyd Mayweather Jr. back on Sept. 14 of 2013. He has won seven straight since then, with four knockouts. Canelo’s last fight came on May 6, a decision win over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Canelo also is a power puncher, but relies more on longevity than GGG. Alvarez has an experience edge in this fight in terms of fighting on a big platform. Canelo fought the best in Mayweather and has faced tougher competition over his career compared to Golovkin.
