JUST days af­ter Floyd May­weather trounces Conor Mcgre­gor, the pro­mo­tion for box­ing’s best fight of 2017 steps up an­other gear as Canelo Al­varez and Gen­nady Golovkin take part in me­dia work­outs in front of huge crowds in Los An­ge­les.

“I know what I have in front of me,” Al­varez says. “I know he’s a strong fighter. He is the most dan­ger­ous op­po­nent of my ca­reer, but I’m ready for him and what’s next to come. That’s why we pre­pared – to give the fans a beau­ti­ful fight. This fight’s for you; this fight’s for all the fans who have been ask­ing for it. We know that in fights, it takes two to tango. I’m ready, and you know what you’ll get from me. Let’s just hope he brings it as well.

“I’m gonna do and use what­ever I need to be one step ahead of Gen­nady in the ring. With­out a doubt, our fight on Septem­ber 16 will be one of the great fights in the his­tory of box­ing.”

Uni­fied world mid­dleweight cham­pion Golovkin says: “This is a fight box­ing can be proud of. It is box­ing’s big­gest fight. It is a fight for his­tory. It is a real Mex­i­can fight. Ev­ery­one will re­mem­ber this fight. Canelo is No. 1 in Mex­ico, a coun­try known for great fight­ers. He is very spe­cial.”
