Golovkin jabs at 'clown' Canelo at weigh

GGG v Canelo

GGG v Canelo

The preliminary fights will get underway at 1:00am on Sunday morning.

The pair first met last September and after twelve rounds of exciting back and forth action the fight went to the judges scorecards for decision.

Because of the controversy surrounding the drug tests and the scorecards from the first fight, which most believe Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs) had won, the second fight has become a grudge match thanks to GGG's outspoken comments regarding his anger.

A positive test by Alvarez for clenbuterol forced the rematch to be postponed from May. "He would have got knocked out the first time, but he decided to make it a track meet".

The Mexican boxing star was given a surprisingly short six month ban from the Nevada State Athletic Commission which allows the rematch to take place this weekend.

The 28-year-old vehemently denied any wrongdoing, maintaining he had ingested the drug accidentally as a result of eating contaminated beef from his native Mexico. The rematch is sold out, but a lackluster promotion might make it more hard to sell as many pay-per-views as the two fighters did when they first met.

Not wanting to risk a period of inactivity, he remained determined to fight on May 5th, taking on former world title challenger Vanes Martirosyan in a hastily-arranged clash at the StubHub Center in Los Angeles.

Tonight, Gennady "GGG" Golovkin and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez face off in a rematch of their thrilling draw in Las Vegas.

The courageous Armenian lasted all of four minutes and 53 seconds before being clobbered into submission as Golovkin made a statement to his rivals in the division with yet another imposing knockout.

Byrd only gave Golovkin the fourth and seventh round of the fight. Now, the two rivals will once again fight to determine who is the best middleweight in boxing today. I defeated the weigh-in, now it's time for me to defeat him on Saturday.

"I had a great experience from the first fight", Golovkin said.
