Many boxing fans may be wondering why it's taken the Canelo Alvarez vs. GGG trilogy four years to come to fruition. Well, don't feel alone because Gennadiy Golovkin is right there with you. Matter of fact, if it were up to him, this would have taken place much sooner than later.
Boxing takes center stage this weekend with Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin 3 for the undisputed super middleweight title of the world. The trilogy fight for these two comes after a controversial draw between the pair in 2017, followed by a close fight—won by Alvarez—a year later.
In addition to Canelo vs. GGG 3, the fight card also host a WBC super flyweight title fight between Jesse Rodriguez and Israel Gonzalez. Here are the details you need on today’s card, including bout order, start time, live stream, and more.
"This is not a question for me," Golovkin told "Morning Kombat" last week. "I insisted on a trilogy the next day after the judges gave the victory to Canelo [in the rematch]."
To defend Alvarez (57-2-2, 39 KOs), the undisputed super middleweight champion only fought at middleweight once more after his 2018 rematch with Golovkin (42-1-1, 37 KOs), who still holds a pair of world titles at 160 pounds. Alvarez, 32, will look to defend his four-pack of titles this weekend inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas (DAZN PPV, 8 p.m. ET -- subscribe now) in the first fight of their rivalry to take place at 168 pounds.
Alvarez, who is fresh off a decision loss to WBA light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol in May, hasn't seemed as if he wanted the trilogy despite how much money DAZN paid both shortly after launching in the U.S. in 2018 in hopes of landing a third fight. A big part of that was the bad blood between them, fueled not only by a pair of disputed decisions in which GGG felt robbed but also by the steroid allegations aimed at Alvarez after failing a drug test ahead of their rematch.
Asked by CBS Sports on Wednesday, however, whether he was motivated this time to accept the challenge, Alvarez changed his tune.
"Yes, I want [the trilogy]," Alvarez said. "And if people want it, I really want it. I wanted to come back strong so I'm really excited to be here. I'm ready for Saturday."
