Early betting action favors underdog Canelo Alvarez vs. favorite Gennady Golovkin

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.

But the Kazakh destroyer was denied a 39th consecutive victory after being held to a controversial draw by Mexican rival Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in September a year ago.

Golovkin and his team have repeatedly publicly criticised Alvarez, after the fight was initially postponed due to the Mexican fighter testing positive for clenbuterol in March of 2018.

The undefeated boxing champion Gennady Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs) will defend his WBA (Super), WBC, and IBO middleweight titles in a rematch against Mexican Canelo Alvarez.

For their first bout past year, Alvarez earned a guaranteed purse of $5 million while Golovkin made $3 million. "I would expect quite a few large bets Saturday". His record of 49-1-2 with 34 knockouts includes victories over Shane Mosley, Austin Trout, Erislandry Lara, Miguel Cotto and Amir Khan, all world champions.

"He's promised the fans he's going to knock him out, but in order to do that you have to be in range", Sanchez said. But he went 12 tough rounds against Daniel Jacobs before going the distance with Alvarez, and there are some in boxing who believe his skills are eroding at the age of 36. "He would have got knocked out the first time, but he decided to make it a track meet".

The fight last fall ended in a swirl of controversy after judge Dave Moretti scored it 115-113 for Golovkin; while Don Trella saw it a 114-114 and Adelaide Byrd favored Alvarez 118-110.

"It's a real fight", Golovkin said this week.

"I'm angry but I'm going to use it in my favor in this fight", Alvarez said.

Alvarez said he got carried away by the atmosphere at the weigh-in. He and Alvarez have shared a room only once since the fight was announced - at Wednesday's final prefight press conference - and Alvarez is so upset about Golovkin's comments that he refused to do a traditional faceoff with Triple G for photographers.

The preliminary fights will get underway at 8:00pm ET / 6:00pm PT.

But both fighters say they are happy with the judges for the rematch, and doubt they will come into play anyway.

"I think this fight could be it".
