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.

Following that, things went from bad to worst. I remember a lot of great champions, like Carlos Monzon, Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, Bernard Hopkins. I always prepare myself to give the best. "He's gonna knock me out, this and that".

Golovkin, who is unbeaten after 37 professional fights, is seen signing multiple autographs for fans and posing for pictures, including one with a group of police officers.

Watch the official final press conference for Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady "GGG" Golovkin, Wednesday, Sep.

Becoming the 21st in "Triple G's" unbelievable string of knockout victories, Canadian middleweight David Lemieux was dissected, tamed and picked apart by the Kazakh at Madison Square Garden in October of 2015.

Alvarez's familiarity with his surroundings means little to Golovkin, who said: "It's not special". In this case, the two best at middleweight just happen to be two of the most popular fighters in the entire sport.

"I've been waiting three years for this fight".

"For the last couple of years he's looked very good so for the boxing fans, it's the ideal fight".

Golovkin is well aware that Saturday will be the defining moment of his career. I'm old school. I think there should just be one champion. "That ends Saturday night".
