GGG vs. Canelo Alvarez 2: The Duel in the Desert is Near

GGG vs. Canelo 2

Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez will finally meet for their highly anticipated rematch.


T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas is set to play host to the WBC and WBA championship bout on September 15.

Golovkin (38-0-1) is boxing’s unified WBC, WBA, and IBO middleweight champion of the world. Additionally, he held the IBF title from 2015-2018.

Alvarez (49-1-2) hasn’t fought since the first bout with GGG in Sept. 2017 when the two fought to a draw.

Both men initially agreed to the rematch on May 5, but Alvarez failed two drug tests for performance enhancing drugs (Clenbuterol) this past February.

The failed tests resulted in a six-month suspension courtesy of the Nevada State Athletic Commission forcing the rematch to be delayed.

Now, with the big drama behind both men and the rematch drawing near, the world is getting ancy in anticipation of fight night.

GGG posseses exceptional and precise punching power. Which was on full display from 2008-2017 when he racked up 23 knockouts.

He returned to those vicious ways this past May when he thoroughly dominated and knocked out Vanes Martirosyan within two rounds.

For the legendary champion, the time to duel is closing in as he finishes preparations at high altitude in Big Bear, California.

With that being said, the fight capital of the world will once again host a legendary bout when GGG and Canelo step inside the ring to close out this chapter of their careers.
