It’s rematch time. Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin meet again in Las Vegas after their controversial draw in the same venue last year, and we’re here to tell you how you can live stream the whole Canelo vs GGG 2, regardless of where you are. It’s the biggest boxing fight of the year!
It’s fair to say that boxing fans were left scratching their heads at the end of the first Canelo vs GGG fight at the T-Mobile Arena, as one judge scored the fight as a comfortable 118 – 110 victory for Canelo, while the remaining two recorded a 115 – 113 to Golovkin and a 114 – 114 draw. Since then, a rematch has loomed and despite some delays – caused in no small part by two failed drug tests for Canelo – the Mexican has the opportunity to lock horns with his Kazakhstan counterpart once again.
Canelo’s propensity to blow out in the later stages of the big fights perhaps gives GGG the edge heading into this one, but if last year’s duel is anything to go by this will be very closely fought. It’s a tense middleweight battle that could well turn out to be a classic.
