It will be one of the most anticipated fights of the last years. Two boxing exponents who in recent years have established themselves as the best in their division will face each other on September 16 in Las Vegas.
Who can bet on ‘Canelo’ Álvarez and Gennady Golovkin? One is Mexican and the other, native of Kazakhstan has that Aztec style thanks to the teachings of his coach, which promises a great battle over the ring.
But let’s break it down and talk about the qualities of each one so that you can reflect on who to tilt your forecast, and most importantly, where to put your money on this occasion.
There are several points in favor of and against both: age, reach, knockout power, mobility and the desire to win. Those factors make the fight level and make it really difficult to guarantee a victory on either side.
‘Canelo’ is 26 years old, Golovkin 35, but in the experience of a quadrilateral is bigger, having 49 wins (34 by KO), a draw and a defeat, while the Kazakh has a record of 37-0 (22 by the fast track).
This in the paper predicts a war, because the styles with which both fight are uncomfortable for each other, while ‘Canelo’ is somewhat more dynamic and his blows are dry, Golovkin looks more fixed and its impacts are true bombs.
What complicates each one? It has been seen that the defensive boxers and counterglops are the kryptonite for Alvarez. In his only loss, against Floyd Mayweather Jr. He was dominated by the clashes and the speed of ‘Money’, in addition, when there was exchange lost of all, all.
This is a yellow focus of the ball against Golovkin, reaching a frank exchange could do him a lot of damage, since he does not have a jaw as resistant as the European one does, than in fights where he has been put in trouble (Daniel Jacobs example) his temper and endurance pushed him forward.
On the other hand, the danger for Golovkin appears in the hard hit of the Mexican. No one throughout the Kazakh race has beaten him as hard as Saul will, that’s a fact and there might come a weak spot for GGG.
You still do not decide? It’s difficult! Is not it? It is not easy to predict a winner in a fight that looks so evenly on all sides, but our duty is to guide you to choose one and that will do next.
