The city lives by this fight. He's the definition of a living legend.
Tonight, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin will trade shots for the unified WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, The Ring magazine, and lineal middleweight championship of the world, live from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
I'm veering towards GGG, given his experience in the ring with bigger boxers and his ability to dictate the pace. This one reminds me of waiting for the trilogy of (Carmen) Basilio and (Sugar Ray) Robinson. However he wants to fight I am ready.
One key factor, says Chargin, and something people don't always think about, is the powerful urge to win for both fighters. "It's not an easy fight for him or me", Golovkin said.

Because a knock-out at the elite level is very rare indeed, smart money should be placed on a Canelo points victory, straddled by a Golovkin KO.
Alvarez has a weapon Chargin believes could be a great equalizer - the hook to the liver.
