Three-time world champion Canelo Alvarez has been looking mean in training for his September 16 collision with middleweight king Gennady Golovkin.
The 26 year-old Mexican superstar in knuckling down to work despite still having three months left to go until his most defining bout since taking on the then pound for pound number one Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2013.
Canelo has only that solitary loss to Mayweather on his record through 51 bouts and goes into the Golovkin clash knowing victory will add significantly to his pulling power and legacy.

As Mayweather prepares to return against Conor McGregor, Canelo has the opportunity to cement his place as boxing’s biggest Pay-Per-View star and claim a clutch of world titles at the middleweight limit in the process.
It all goes down at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas as Golden Boy and K2 begin work on the undercard.
