Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez, Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin to fight in September

Las Vegas. The two are scheduled to fight in a 164.5 pound catch weight boxing match Saturday in Las Ve

Canelo Alvarez, right, connects with a punch on Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. during their fight at the T-Mobile Arena Saturday, May 6, 2017. Along with all that, the history between these two boxers has been building for years.

The fight is on pay per view at 9 p.m. Watch it with me. A lot of you said this fight would never be made. The fight with Golovkin will demonstrate my strengths. His last two wins have come by knockout, with his last unanimous decision victory coming in November 2015 against Miguel Cotto. It was later revealed that Pacquiao, who struggled to land punches, was fighting with an undisclosed shoulder injury. Chavez Jr. Vs Canelo is the top talk of ESPN as well as the majority of all sports news today. I'm not sure if enough British boxing fans would be willing to buy tickets in high enough numbers to sell out the stadium like they did with the recent Anthony Joshua vs. Wladimir Klitschko fight.

Saturday's bout is being considered one of the biggest involving Mexican fighters, and it comes on the Cinco de Mayo holiday weekend and amid political tensions.

It's time. In back-to-back weeks we get a couple of the biggest fights of the year.

The surprise announcement of the bout being signed came moments after Alvarez routed Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

"Tonight I showed I could move and box", Alvarez said. In that fight, Chavez appeared to quit in the corner, something that is nearly unforgivable to Mexican fans. He's guaranteed $5 million. Canelo Alvarez is a considerable favorite (-600) in the fight set to take place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. "I think I bring more to the table than he does".

No site for the fight has been announced.

MRI confirms partial lat tear for Mets' Noah Syndergaard
Syndergaard (1-2) gave up five runs on five hits in the first inning of Sunday's 23-5 loss to the Nationals . Right now, MLB.com's Anthony DiComo reports that Rafael Montero will start in place of Syndergaard.

As the two were side by side, after quickly shaking hands, Max Kellerman turned to Alvarez and asked him if this means the two of them will be fighting in September, Alvarez replied, "Yes sir, yes sir, it's done". He was in attendance at Alvarez's press conference and insisted he is aware of how hard the September clash will be, per Rafael: "Everyone understands this is a tough fight for both of us".

Golovkin's WBA, WBC and IBF belts will be on the line against the 26-year-old Mexican. Alvarez, who faced Chavez at a contract weight of 164.5 pounds, will fight at 160 pounds against Golovkin after refusing to fight his previous middleweight title bouts heavier than 155 pounds.

"Nacho really pushed Julio". That's unfortunate because needed a strong tune-up to get him ready for what he's doing to be facing when he gets inside the ring with GGG.

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr is one of the most popular fighters in the world.

A confident Canelo didn't bother to sit in his corner after the seventh round of a fight that wasn't almost as competitive as hoped. "This is an important rivalry". Las Vegas, Nevada and Houston, Texas are both possibilities, though De La Hoya stated that there is interest all over the world to host the fight.

Chavez Jnr, 31, believes this will be the biggest win of his career as he put persistent weight problems behind him for a purse of about £5m.
