Alvarez, Golovkin meet in fight for the middle-ages

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin both tipped the scales at exactly 160 pounds during Friday's weigh-in ahead of their hotly-anticipated clash. Both he and Golovkin are two of the premier draws in the sport and two of the best pound-for-pound fighters. Triple G is expected to be a classic "matador versus bull" style pairing, where the sharp-shooting counter puncher (Alvarez) attempts to stave-off the relentless aggressor (Golovkin) throughout the scheduled twelve round fight.

Oleksandr Usyk and Marco Huck kicked of the WBSS cruiserweight version last weekend with the unbeaten Ukrainian handing the German his fifth career defeat with a 10-round TKO. The combination of styles has boxing fans salivating over what will happen in the same ring where Mayweather stopped McGregor three weeks ago.

James Woods' most controversial Twitter moments: A short history
He plays a 24-year-old dashing American , who becomes the object of infatuation for the 17-year-old Elio ( Timothée Chalamet ). Even without James' stamp of approval, "Call Me by My Name" received huge applause at the Toronto Film Festival.

Canelo Alvarez has been one of the biggest names in boxing for a long, long time, and on Saturday he'll be fighting one just about as big in Gennady Golovkin on HBO pay-per-view. Utilizing a snapping jab and brutal overhand right, Golovkin dishes out as much damage with his precise combinations as he does with his aggression as an in-fighter. Still, it promises to be a can't miss fight that brings back memories of the great middleweights of the 1980's. "It all depends on who lands the punch that defines the fight and I think Gennady is going to do that", said Abel Sanchez, Golovkin's trainer. "I am ready to reign at the top of the middleweight division for a long time". "I'm happy for all the love from these fans and I'll give them 100 per cent like I always do".

The 35-year-old Golovkin will climb the ring a physically bigger man, being a natural middleweight, but Canelo has soared high as a boxing great by becoming a two-weight world champion.

The only hope is that those in power do not hide behind short public memory and let schools become danger zones for our children. Authorities are being asked to explain how the non-teaching staff was allowed to use the same toilets that were used by students.

The Mexican superstar said the time for talking is over after weighing-in for his superfight with middleweight kingpin Golovkin.

A win however, particularly if it's a convincing performance, and he will be next in line for a showdown with the GGG/ Canelo victor.
