The Biggest Boxing Match of the Year!

The biggest boxing match of the year is almost here... Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) vs. Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV! The winner of this mega-fight will walk away with the WBA (Super), WBC, IBO, and IBF Middleweight Titles. Both men hit the scales earlier Friday afternoon, and weighed-in at 160 pounds, the weight limit for the middleweight world title fight.

The card also features an interesting undercard that should be filled with action. Most notable on the undercard is a matchup between undefeated featherweights, Joseph Diaz (24-0, 13 KOs) and Rafael Rivera (25-0-2, 16 KOs). The winner of Diaz vs. Rivera will be the mandatory challenger for featherweight world title champion, Gary Russell Jr. (28-1, 17 KOs).

An NABF Super Bantamweight title bout between defending champion, Randy Caballero (24-0, 14 KOs) and Diego De La Hoya (19-0, 9 KOs), first cousin of Oscar De La Hoya, is scheduled for tomorrow evening. Ryan Martin (19-0, 11 KOs) and Francisco Rojo (20-2, 13 KOs) are also scheduled to fight for the vacant WBA Inter-Continental Lightweight Title and Martin's WBC Continental Americas Lightweight Title.

The televised portion of the card begins at 8:00 PM EST on HBO pay-per-view.
