* Much anticipated boxing match finally arrives
* Streams live from Las Vegas, Saturday September 16
* Three easy ways to stream the fight – including one way to get it for free
Move over Mayweather, the next great boxing fight is here.
Less than a month after the epic Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor bout, fans and odds-makers alike are readying themselves for this Saturday’s match between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez.
Boxing experts say this will be one of the most competitive matches ever on paper, pitting the powerful Alvarez (ranked as the #1 boxer in the world according to BoxRec), against the rangy Golovkin (nicknamed “GGG”) and his undefeated record. Both are considered among the best punchers in the sport, with a ton of strengths and very little weaknesses.
