GENNADY "GGG" GOLOVKIN, WBC/WBA/IBF/IBO Middleweight Champion:

"It's amazing to be in Las Vegas. But the bigger thing is the fight is finally here. I am Gennady Golovkin until I walk into the ring. And that's when I turn into Triple G. It's not that I'm mean, or angry. I'm just more focused. This is the perfect fight for fans. And the perfect fight for me. I will enjoy it."

"I've wanted him [Alvarez] because of the Cotto fight when he became the mandatory challenger. I'm old school. I think there should just be one champion. All my career I've been denied the fights I've wanted [Felix Sturm, Sergio Martinez, Miguel Cotto]. That ends Saturday night."
