Bet on Golovkin vs. Alvarez

Golovkin, also known as “GGG” is a perfect 37-0 in his career with 33 knockouts. He is the one putting up four championships in this bout. The native of Kazakhstan last fought in March, scoring a decision win over Daniel Jacobs. GGG has displayed tremendous power, scoring fast knockouts throughout his career. 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.
