Pound-for-pound kings will meet in September in world title mega-fight
FORGET Mayweather vs McGregor, the superfight boxing fans really want to see is just weeks away.
Pound-for-pound kings Gennady Golovkin and Saul Alvarez gave the public a sneak peak at what to expect at an open workout in LA.
The pair will collide on September 16, with the WBA (Super), WBC, IBO, IBF, The Ring and lineal middleweight titles on the line.
Kazakh KO machine Golovkin goes into the fight as the bookies favourite and looked in top shape as he trained in the sun.
Alvarez – who’s only defeat in 51 fights came to Floyd Mayweather in 2013 – looked focused as he was roared on by fans waving Mexican flags.
Supporters flocked to LA Live’s Microsoft Square to see the two boxers in action.
He is looking to become the first man to put a loss on GGG’s unblemished record – the 35-year-old has won all 37 of his contests, 33 inside the distance.
A win for the younger man could spell the end of Golovkin’s career, after he admitted he could retire to spend more time with his wife.
