Anticipation and excitement is building with the much anticipated and delayed rematch just 6 weeks away! Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Gennady “GGG” Golovkin will step in the ring once more for Golovkin’s WBA and WBC unified Middleweight titles. One day shy of their thrilling first fights anniversary, the two warriors and pound for pound elite fighters return to the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, the same site where the much awaited first battle took place and ended in a widely debated draw.

RECAP OF SEPTEMBER 16, 2017:

I can recall being there live and witnessing the reactions of shock and disbelief from the sold out arena crowd in attendance as the scorecards where read. As I witnessed the epic fight I too had a close fight throughout, however, after watching the replay when I got back home. Although still close, I undoubtedly had “Triple G” winning 7 rounds to 5 (115-113).

WHAT TO WATCH FOR SEPTEMBER 15, 2018:

Without question I knew that there would have to be a rematch to settle the score, and this time with hopes that someone would come out the clear winner, away from the judge’s hands. As a lady so keen towards the violence of boxing I do get the curious question of ‘why’ Why am I so passionate for it? It is simple really, it’s what many dogmatic fans know it as, the sweet science, the art that is the sport of boxing. I love watching art in its finest form, the final product, the masterpiece as it all unfolds on fight night! That being said, one thing is for sure, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Gennady “GGG” Golovkin will enter the ring for the second time with two legacies on the line.

On what should be a hot, late summer night in Sin City? Boxing may very well have the fight that fans have been yearning to celebrate and with an undisputed result to crown the undisputed Middleweight King! With all of the distractions and reasons for the delay. I, as a fan first, am focused on how memorable the night just might turn out to be for boxing’s rich history! As the great Welsh poet Dylan Thomas wrote “Do not go gentle into that good night.” I anticipate September 15th to be a night where neither fighter goes gently into the night and the dream of the fans is that the night will live on in our minds and hearts for the passion and the blessings of the great risk takers that we will witness!
