Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin: UK ring walk time, how to watch, live stream, undercard

Bitter rivals Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin will face it for the third time in a stunning trilogy clash, this time with all the super-middleweight belts on the line.

The pair have closed the horns twice before, the first in 2017 when Canelo escaped in a lucky split-decision draw, with the majority of onlookers calling it in favor of Golovkin.

Their second meeting – which followed the first and took place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas – was equally controversial, with Canelo claiming a majority victory in a result that once again felt hard on the middleweights.

This time, again at the T-Mobile Arena, Canelo’s full set of super-middleweight belts – a collection he completed with the win over Caleb Plant last November – are on the line as an iconic clutch finally comes to an end.

The fight now looks set to be a must-win for both, with Canelo suffering his first defeat since the last time he lost to Floyd Mayweather in 2013, when a great Dmitry Bivol claimed a one-sided unanimous decision win at the light-heavyweight, while Golovkin revealed that he plans to retire in the near future.

Golovkin has been largely inactive in recent years, with his win over Ryota Murata earlier this year being his first appearance in 16 months.

What was said?

Despite it being four years since the pair last fought, Canelo insists their rivalry is still very personal.

“It has always been very personal with him. That will never go away,” Alvarez told DAZN. “After we finish the two fights, it still feels the same.

“He never stopped talking about me. As you see, I never mentioned his name. I’ve always been in his mouth, he was always talking about me, and that makes it even more personal.

‘The fact that there is that rivalry adds an extra element to that. That’s why I train harder. I try harder. Personally, I sometimes feel better that it exists.’

Meanwhile, a confident Golovkin insists he hasn’t even looked back on Canelo’s defeat to Bivol.

“I didn’t see the fight, I didn’t see it,” Golovkin told Forbes. “That fight showed that Canelo can be lost without knocking out his opponent.

“I don’t think I need to make drastic changes to my style. I don’t have to be like Bivol to gain any advantage or edge over Canelo.

“This fight is going to take place in a different weight class. I’m sure Canelo will take it more seriously. He basically goes back to reality.

‘My goal is to show the best of myself. I take it very seriously. I work a lot. I work hard.’
