THE time has come. Saturday, September 16 sees Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin, one of the best fights that can be made in the sport, take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Golovkin comes to the ring with the WBA, WBC and IBF world middleweight titles, although Canelo has said he will not accept the WBC belt. Regardless of which belts the victor walks away with, this contest will surely decide who the best boxer in the world today is.
