The biggest boxing fight since Mayweather-Pacquiao is now official. After years of teasing, Mexican boxing superstar and welterweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez will challenge unified middleweight champion and punching terror Gennady Golovkin on September 16.
Venue: Forum, Inglewood, California. Live on HBO
Saul “Canelo” Alvarez - 47-1, 33 KOs
Possibly the biggest star in the sport, Canelo has wins over Shane Mosley, Austin Trout, James Kirkland and Miguel Cotto. The only loss on his record comes against the great Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Gennady Golovkin - 35-0, 32 KOs
The middleweight champion might be the most feared fighter in the sport today. His above-90% KO ratio is the highest of any middleweight in the sports history. He’s so damn scary that he’s having trouble getting legitimate contenders to face him.
Miguel Cotto - 40-5, 33 KOs
A four-division world champion from Puerto Rico, Cotto is one of the sport’s most recognizable names. His action-packed style has earned scores of fans over the years, and he’s been in notable fights against stars like Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.
Wladimir Klitschko - 64-4, 53 KOs
Though the Ukrainian lost his belt in a shocker to Tyson Fury, his lengthy reign remains one of the longest heavyweight title runs in boxing history. There’s no doubt that he’ll remain near the top of the heap for a very long time.
Terence Crawford - 28-0, 20 KOs
A master of switching stances, the undefeated Crawford is a bright young star for HBO Boxing. The lightweight has power in both hands, great lateral movement and a slick style that no opponent has been able to defeat. The future is bright for the world champion.
Sergey Kovalev - 29-0, 26 KOs
In a sport filled with hyperbolic nicknames, “Krusher” is one that fits the fight fighter. Russia’s Sergey Kovalev is a cold-blooded slugger that drops opponents with ease. The former gold medalist has knocked out a few good opponents, like Nathan Cleverly, since signing with HBO.
Andre Ward - 29-0, 15 KOs
Oakland’s Andre Ward has yet to lose despite facing some of the best middleweights in the sport and winning the WBC, WBA, Ring Magazine belts along with the Super Six Championship Cup. He has a case as one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the sport.
