Boxing on hot streak ahead of Canelo-Chavez Jr. showdown

Saul Alvarez to take on unbeaten Gennady Golovkin

"But, I always say, Canelo Alvarez is the best because I fight the best".

Promoters of Alvarez and Golovkin were present during the Alvarez-Chavez fight at the T. Mobile Arena and right after Alvarez' shutout victory over Chavez, they officially announced the holding of the fight on September 16, 2017.

Both fighters weighed in Friday at the 164-pound catchweight.

At the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, Canelo Alvarez dominated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr to settle what turned out to be more of an all-Mexican beatdown than the advertised war.

Golovkin: "Good luck in September".

"The difference is, this fight is going to have a lot of action, nonstop action", said De La Hoya, who's calling the bout "Bombs Away".

Months of political tensions boiled three weeks ago over disagreements about the election of a new parliament speaker. The coalition agreement was struck after national elections in December.

"GGG, you are next, my friend.", he said.

However, now boxing fans the world over have the fight they want, and it is set to be a massive occasion.

"This is the biggest fight in boxing", Golovkin said. "I am very happy that this fight is made - the fight they said never was going to be made".

"First, I consider myself a person of strong mental strength, and I knew I had to focus".

'I knew Canelo was going to beat Chavez easy, and I thought he was going to get up there after what he did a year ago and make another scene, say something like, 'I did this to Chavez, and I'll do the same thing to you, Triple-G'.

Alvarez had just finished embarrassing the crowd-favorite - and fellow countryman - Chavez Jr. for 12 rounds, prompting thousands of boos during the latter rounds of the fight. "The styles are there and they should mesh together".

The Kazakh has won all 37 of his fights with 33 by knockout, while Alvarez has just one defeat against Floyd Mayweather on his record in a 51-fight career.

Alvarez said he didn't overlook Chavez even with the agreement to fight Golovkin reached before Saturday's fight. "It is an awesome fight for everybody".

The former middleweight world champion is aware of what is on the line having changed his team around in the build up, bringing in the much respected Nacho Beristain to train him, but will still use his father as inspiration for the fight. "Everybody wanted this fight".

"The Triple G side is a pleasure to work with", De La Hoya said of Golovkin's camp.

There's a sucker, a boxing fan and a Cowboys fan born every minute, and bless us all. No big deal. These big fights take time to make.
