Getty Images What time does the fight start? Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez meet Saturday night in a middleweight showdown that has been brewing for years.

It can be hard sometimes for boxers at or near the peak of their respective powers to meet in the ring, as business interests, injuries, promoters and the various boxing organizations can prevent some of those marquee matchups from ever taking place.

Now that the circus of Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor has concluded, the eyes of the boxing world turns to the fight between two of the world's best pound-for-pound boxers, Canelo taking on Gennady Golovkin. Ive been a champion a long time, ” said Golovkin.

It's today! Unfortunately you're going to have to stay up until around 4am BST. "It's risky. Everyone understands that". The talking has been done, we have weighed-in and now it is about getting in the ring and fighting.

However, he insists he is ready to take it to the Kazakhstani fighter as he bids to end his 37-match winning streak.

According to several different casinos and betting cages, 48% of all wagers placed on this fight have been in favor of the crafty Guadalajara native, with 46% of the action favoring a Golovkin victory and a microscopic 6% anticipating a draw. Which is why I think Canelo will probably win.

"I am going to give the fans a special fight - a real fight". But a win over Golovkin would undoubtedly be Canelo's greatest achievement and arguably the most impressive middleweight feat in decades.

Yesterday they both made weight, coming in at 160-pounds.

You don't have to have cable to stream the fight. But it was the first time since 2008 that GGG has failed to knock out an opponent. Both will make millions of dollars in a fight that holds risks - and plenty of rewards - for both of their careers. He is probably the most popular person in Mexico. Backed by the sport's most die-hard fan base, the 27-year-old from Guadalajara has proven he is primed and ready to take the next step in his career by facing Golovkin. Between them they have 86 wins, against only one loss. Alvarez enters 49-1-1 with 34 knockouts on his resume.

As of Saturday at 7 a.m ET, Golovkin is a -160 favorite, Alvarez a slight +130 underdog, per OddsShark.com. And if I was working with him, I'd have given him a break. "I feel something happening when I get hit, but I don't feel power". I'm very confident because of the work and the training and everything I put in for this fight. For Golovkin, the fight is the culmination of a long battle to establish himself as the top middleweight in the world.

Trainer Abel Sanchez says: 'Gennady is smiling a lot not only for the birth but also because he finally has this big fight and that frustration is over'.

And will this clash of elite level titans live up to its enormous critical expectation and become this decade's Corrales vs. Castillo I? "This is my game, my fight".

Golden Boy Promotions boss Oscar de la Hoya said the Canelo-GGG fight will be his gold medal as a promoter. Golovkin, who speaks limited English, backed his comments up with a tweet warning Alvarez what was yet to come. "He's home. It's the same for me in the ring". "If you go in the ocean the shark knows", he wrote.
