The bitter rivals will meet for a third time this weekend.
Canelo Alvarez and Gennadiy Golovkin face off in their trilogy rematch as they look to decide who is the better fighter. The two champions met in 2017 for their first scrap, with the match-up scored a draw, to Golovkin's disappointment. He was even more dissatisfied with the 2018 rematch, which was ruled in Canelo's favour. The two have dominated the ring for most of the four years since, and are now going to meet again in the ring in Las Vegas.
