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. Canelo would go on to lose that fight by majority decision, which is to this day his only competitive loss.

The triple world champion touched down in Las Vegas on Tuesday to begin his final preparations for a fight he has craved for more than two years. "That's what I'm happy for". I've wanted it for a very long time and for the last couple of weeks all I've wanted to do was get into the ring with this guy.

'I want to win this fight because for me this win will be like a history fight, like Leonard vs. Hagler, ' Golovkin said.

Canelo also hopes that Golovkin brings the fight to him on fight night, and is readily prepared to counter whatever offense the risky Kazakh fighter has.

"I understand that it is good for business when you have four different champions at the same weight, but for me, it's important to know who is number one, the best". He is the most risky opponent of my career, but I'm ready for him and what's next to come.

'This fight's for you; this fight's for all the fans who have been asking for it.

Canelo vs GGG is one of the most anticipated fights of the year and is seen by boxing fans as a welcome return to action after the "circus" of Conor McGregor's crossover fight with Floyd Mayweather. Like middleweight division, I believe the boxing division will come back.

"I remember watching on my TV and just saying wow", Golovkin said. Right now for us, it's huge.

"I always prepare myself to give the best".
