Less than two weeks remain before Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo"Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) steps in the ring with IBF, IBO, WBA, WBC middleweight champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs).
The fight takes place on September 16th from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, as the headline bout of an HBO Pay-Per-View card.
It's the most anticipated boxing match in several years, with Canelo taking his first step to compete at the full middleweight limit of 160-pounds, and he's taking on the division's king.
Showtime broadcast analyst and Hall of Famer Al Bernstein is really looking forward to the fight.
There are two big questions that are going to be answered in the match, says Bernstein, and both of them are revolving around Canelo.
Bernstein wonders if Canelo is capable of hurting Golovkin and he also wonders if the Mexican boxer can take Golovkin's heavy punch.
Before going the distance with Daniel Jacobs in March, Golovkin had stopped 23 opponents in a row. Even when it came to his last bout, Golovkin had Jacobs on the floor.
Bernstein believes Golovkin will win the contest - because Canelo's style is a good match for him.
"I think it’s going to be very entertaining because both men will be in the pocket exchanging with each other. Daniel Jacobs was able to do well against Golovkin by boxing well and showing movement, which Canelo doesn’t do. I think they are both going to be in the pocket exchanging," Bernstein told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.
"There are two questions that need to be answered, can Canelo hurt Golovkin? And can Canelo take the big punch of Golovkin? If it turns out if one or both of those are true early in the match, we’re going to have a heck of a match. I think we’re going to have a heck of a match anyway because I think they both can land a lot of punches and I think this will be a shoot out.
"I would lean toward Golovkin to win the fight. I think at the end of the day this is stylistically a good match-up for him."
