Canelo Alvarez Training For 1st Round KO In Gennady Golovkin Rematch

Now, after a manic and frenetic weigh-in on Friday night, it appears some of those words and emotions may just have bubbled over slightly, with both fighters being pictured exchanging words with one another as they went face-to-face for the final time before the fight.

Following the controversial decision in their first fight, most fans are expecting that either Canelo or "GGG" will earn their 35th career knockout victory in the rematch.

Here, we take a closer look at everything you need to know about how to order and watch Canelo vs GGG 2, not to mention a stacked three-fight undercard.

A year ago, this was the biggest fight in the world.

Now, one day before their rescheduled mega-sequel on Saturday (8 p.m. ET, HBO PPV) at T-Mobile Arena, they still haven't posed nose-to-nose for the freeze-frame that fans and media want to see. Golovkin, 36, a Kazakhstan native fighting out of Santa Monica, California, and seeking to break the all-time middleweight defense record he shares with Bernard Hopkins by retaining his title for the 21st consecutive time, weighed in first and was 159.6 pounds.

Khan managed to widen the points gap though with his own blistering hand speed, but was rocked again late in the fight. Khan had to climb off the canvas to before comfortably beating the game but limited Samuel Vargas in Birmingham.

Topping the undercard is rising Mexican star Jaime Munguia, who saw off Britain's Liam Smith on BT Sport in July to extend his flawless record to 30-0 (25 KOs).

So what were boxing fans saying about the weigh-in? Judge Adalaide Byrd scored the fight 118-110 Alvarez over GGG, who many thought was the victor.

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

Alvarez was ultimately suspended for six months by the Nevada Athletic Commission.

But the consequences of Canelo's failed drugs test were enormous for Golovkin, too.

Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin will both take home a guaranteed $5 million for Saturday's middleweight title rematch in Las Vegas.

"Everywhere, biceps, stomach, pretty much all over his body you could see injection marks".

Former middleweight world titlist David Lemieux (39-4, 33 KOs), 29, of Montreal, was on the division limit of 160 pounds, and Ireland's Gary "Spike" O'Sullivan, 34, was 159.2 pounds for their title elimination fight.

Golovkin ditched his placid persona, tearing into Canelo on a number of occasions in the press before demanding revised financial terms to fight the two-weight world champion once again. "It's kind of disappointing, because I think this is probably going to be the best fight boxing is going to put on this year". "The first fight was a good experience".

A relaxed-looking Golovkin later took a verbal jab at his Mexican rival after the face-off.
