Canelo Alvarez Training For 1st Round KO In Gennady Golovkin Rematch Boxing: Golovkin, Canelo prepare for boiling point in grudge match

The controversy surrounding the fight has been well publicized after Canelo failed a drugs test earlier this year pushing back the original rematch date.

The bad blood between the pair has grown since Alvarez was temporarily suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission in April for testing positive for the banned substance clenbuterol, forcing a postponement of their planned May 5 rematch.

Golovkin, the unbeaten WBA, WBC and IBO champion, will be chasing a place in boxing history as he attempts to make a record-breaking 21st consecutive defense of his middleweight crowns against Mexican idol Alvarez at a sold-out T-Mobile Arena.

In what is already being billed as a potential fight of the century, both Golovkin and Alvarez have been extremely vocal in the build-up to the clash about the other fighter, as well as how they see the fight planning out.

Alvarez, whose only defeat in a 52-fight career was a 2013 loss to Floyd Mayweather, admits the accusations have riled him. Now, the two rivals will once again fight to determine who is the best middleweight in boxing today.

Mexico's Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 knockouts) meanwhile came in at 159.4 pounds, well within the 160lb limit.

The 28-year-old vehemently denied any wrongdoing, maintaining he had ingested the drug accidentally as a result of eating contaminated beef from his native Mexico. "But I'm going in there to knock him out".

They're a very good team, but we are as well. "Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that would work", Klopp said. We lost [Philippe] Coutinho [to Barcelona], but signed three or four top players.

Scores of 114-114 and 115-113 in Golovkin's favour appeared to fairly reflect the narrow margin between the two men - but ringside judge Adelaide Byrd's freaky scorecard, ruling in favour of Canelo by 118-110, left many observers baffled.

Triple G's trainer Abel Sanchez also added fuel to the fire after their first bout by accusing both Canelo and his team of wrapping their fighter's hand in an illegal manner. "Injection marks were evidently there", Golovkin said.

A more aggressive approach from Alvarez, however, may well play into Golovkin's hands. But the fighters declined to hold a joint news conference when the new deal was finished, and they declined to go on a media tour or stand face to face at the final prefight news conference Wednesday.

Eventually, to the delight of fight fans around the world, the two parties came together for a third time on a deal that will see the duo go to war for the WBA and WBC middleweight world titles, nearly a year to the day since their first meeting.

Whether that translates into a more entertaining fight remains to be seen.

"I'm going to go in there to knock him out", Alvarez said.

"Tomorrow is a real war".
