Exclusive: Glenn McCrory Previews GGG-Canelo – “Pound For Pound”

The day is finally arriving, I’ve waited patiently counting down the days like a schoolboy waiting for Christmas with sheer excitement about everything surrounding the best fight in recent History. The Halloween circus is over, and the real Boxing attraction of 2017 is with us.

The Halloween circus is over, and the real Boxing attraction of 2017 is with us.

Gennady Golovkin puts it all on the line to prove he is the best middleweight in the world when he takes on the excellent Saul Alvarez at the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas in the early hours of Sunday morning, and I will be more than happy to pay for the coverage on Box Nation, with Britains own superb Middleweight Billy Joe Saunders v Willie Monroe Jr serving as an excellent starting course.

Golovkin against Canelo is a truly mouthwatering matchup that gets you pumped up and buzzing thinking of the great middleweight battles of the past, and there have been many, memories of that amazing battle between Marvin Hagler and Tommy Hearns come flooding back and my heart starts to pound to a faster beat.

What makes this fight so fabulous is there’s a completely divided opinion between the fans, boxers, and analysts of this great sport, it’s a true 50/50 fight with so many tangibles between these two great boxing warriors, and it’s easy to make a solid case for each.

Gennady Golovkin the Undisputed king of the middleweight division and most people’s pound for pound pick as the best fighter in the world is undefeated in 37 contests with 33 by KO.

He is a frightening force for any opponent, with a remarkable come forward no nonsense approach this hardworking professional has one goal in his fights.. to destroy.

But there are those that think he has looked less of a force in his two most recent outings, a Kell Brook demolition job where he was caught with punches on occasion and most recently a points win to the big, heavy handed and awkward Daniel Jacobs and feel at 35 years of age Golovkin is past his best.

Is Saul Alvarez the man to fell the G?

A lot of knowledgeable boxing experts think so, the handsome Mexican has more than served his apprenticeship, a hardened professional making his debut at just 15 years of age has notched up an amazing career tally of just 1 loss in 51 fights. This two weight World Champions only loss coming to a top form Floyd Mayweather four years ago as a fresh faced 22 year old kid.
These are true fighting men and top professionals who don’t need the ugly face of boxing to sell their fights, no trash talking nonsense needed here, this is business and this is what they do, so sit back and enjoy because I think it’s going to be an epic toe to toe war from start to finish.

There is so much pride at stake in both men’s biggest fight to date, they are fighting for their place in history and neither is going down without the fight of their lives, which I think will be gruelling and brutal with both taking big shots and both having their success in the fight but I can see Golovkin having enough all round ability and strength to pull off a defining victory on points.

So in the words of legendary referee Mills Lane ” Lets get it on”
