Taking place live on BoxNation Box Office in the United Kingdom for just £16.95, or available to BoxNation subscribers, the flame-haired Canelo wants to give fans the fight they have long yearned for and warned knockout king Golovkin to be ready during their Grand Arrivals at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

On Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Canelo will once again be fighting against conventional wisdom; when betting opened, Vegas pegged GGG the favorite, and despite some movement on the lines, Canelo still remains a +125 underdog on the money line.

While the coverage starts at 1am, the bout itself will likely not get underway until between 4am and 4.30am United Kingdom time.

Forget the procession that was Mayweather vs McGregor - this could be the most thrilling middleweight contest in decades.

"For the last couple of years he's looked very good so for the boxing fans, it's the flawless fight".

At 35, Golovkin is eight years the senior of Canelo, but the Kazakh insists he is feeling as good as ever and believes he can continue to box into his fifth decade. I know he's a strong fighter.

'I'm ready, and you know what you'll get from me. That's why we prepared, and also to give the fans a attractive fight. Right now for us, it's huge. It's regular. I just need my ring.

"I've been waiting three years for this fight. The fight is huge" said Golovkin.

According to CBS Sports, "Saturday's fight represents something far more important to the sport than any carnival sideshow can provide (no matter how entertaining or lucrative said fight turned out to be)". Like right now I'm 35, but I feel like 25.
