World Boxing News presents live results from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for Canelo vs GGG 3.
In the headliner, Canelo Alvarez battles Gennadiy Golovkin for the third time.
Canelo puts his undisputed super-middleweight titles on the line against his career nemesis in GGG this Saturday night.
After their controversial second meeting, the pair will end their rivalry for four years.
Currently, Canelo holds a draw and a majority decision win from the first two contests. Golovkin can feel aggrieved not to have won at least one bout.
In his last fight, a loss to light-heavyweight ruler Dmitry Bivol gives Canelo extra impotence to avoid a second straight loss.
The WBC, WBA, WBO, and IBF champion begins a slight favorite in the trilogy after waiting four years to give Golovkin another opportunity.
Kazakh’s superstar puncher is now 40 years old. He needs a stellar performance to take the super middleweight titles.
Mexico fans have been in force all week and will bid to ensure Canelo has all the help needed to keep his undisputed crown.
