Brook Backs Canelo: I Think Golovkin's Days Are Numbered!

Now it's time for the real fight of the century

Undefeated Kazakh knockout artist Gennady Gennadyevich Golovkin faces boxing's biggest pay per view star, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in the most anticipated middleweight war since the 1980s. "But that's what I've prepared for - to knock him out". "That's what I'm happy for".

I knew Golovkin would be exposed as another HBO creation similar to Manny Pacquiao.

Most betting expert seem to agree that this fight will be the true boxing match of the year (especially after Mayweather vs. McGregor). "I've got through my first 24 fights on skill, now I have the conditioning to produce the very best performances of my career".

And there was a big question mark over Golovkin against Daniel Jacobs last time. He debuted at 15 years old, and has fought 12 current or former champions over that span. Golovkin on the other had has fought five current or former champions in his career.

Whether it's Canelo or Golovkin, or even Billy Joe, I would fight anyone who has got that IBF title if I'm given the shot. Maybe inside, maybe right now I'm younger than Canelo.

Australians looking to tune into the big fight are a bit better off, with the undercard fights set to begin around 10:00 AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time).

When pressed on his goals in the sport of boxing, the 2004 Olympic silver medalist says, "I want to continue to challenge the best".

The day before the bout, the chances are WBO Middleweight World Champion Billy Joe Saunders, from Hatfield, UK, will successfully defend his belt against Willie Monroe Jr, thus making him the only thing that stands between the victor of Canelo v GGG and the title of undisputed middleweight champion of the world.

"I feel great at this age".

So many people think Canelo is too small, I don't think so, I believe he will weigh more than GGG on fight night and will break the body down with vicious rips to the midsection and uppercuts to the chin as GGG tries to hit him on the ropes.

Styles really do make fights, and these are two fighters with explosive styles.
