Golovkin: To Win is Like History Fight, Like Leonard vs. Hagler

WBC WBA and IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin speaks during a news conference at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino

Enter for the opportunity to win a glove signed by Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin, courtesy of our friends at HBO Boxing.

But he said: "This is a very important fight".

Forget the procession that was Mayweather vs McGregor - this could be the most thrilling middleweight contest in decades.

Golovkin who preaches to the public that he is the real "Mexican Style" fighter because he brings the fight and never takes a backwards step, smiled to the crowd promising to give the fans an action packed event. "I will enjoy it", 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 don't know, I remember a lot of great champions, like Carlos Monzon, Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, Bernard Hopkins. In this case, the two best at middleweight just happen to be two of the most popular fighters in the entire sport. That's why we prepared, and also to give the fans a handsome fight.

Either way, both of his identities will be there on Saturday for the fight with Canelo, which should be one of the best boxing matches in years.

The 218-second footage features clips of Golovkin in training, but it also shows him relaxing, with plenty of shots of the 35-year-old at Major League Baseball's Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.

On Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Canelo will once again be fighting against conventional wisdom; when betting opened, Vegas pegged GGG the favorite, and despite some movement on the lines, Canelo still remains a +125 underdog on the money line. Right now for us, it's huge. I am Gennady Golovkin until I walk into the ring.
