What Time Does the Canelo-Golovkin Fight Start?

Oscar De La Hoya: 'We have an opportunity to bring back glory days' of boxing

HBO Boxing: Canelo vs. Golovkin Results

At the time of publication, Gennady Golovkin is now listed as a less than 2 to 1 betting favorite (-160), with Saul "Canelo" Alvarez sitting as a very live underdog at (+135) or virtually even money.

When is the fight and what time is it on?

It will begin, live on PPV at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday.

The eight fighters in the four pay-per-view fights have a combined 217.3.3 (147 KOs) record, including the 86-1-1 (67) Canelo-GGG record. The whole event takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Alvarez, since his promoter, Oscar De La Hoya, first balked at Golovkin in late 2015, has shown sudden knockout power against former 140-pound champion Amir Khan, along with the ability to wear down a foe, like then-154-pound champion Liam Smith, with hard blows.

Golovkin stalks Canelo throughout the bout and outduels him in the pocket.

How much does it cost?

Golovkin's team has claimed that Alvarez has avoided their overtures for a fight for a couple of years, and that may be true, Chargin says, but not because Alvarez didn't want the fight. "They're going to hit each other and give fans the kind of fight they want and expect". If you like boxing at all, you'll be kicking yourself if you miss out on this bout.

HBO is the official broadcaster for the fight, but is only useful if you have a cable subscription.

"This is a fight boxing can be proud of".

"He is the most risky opponent of my career, but I'm ready for him and what's next to come", said the former WBC and WBA super welterweight champion.

"I don't care who is in front of me", Diaz said, via espn.com. But Alvarez packs power, too, and the red-headed Mexican is a savage counterpuncher with a style that should match up perfectly against the onrushing Golovkin. The fight will be broadcast to select movie theaters via Fathom Events. Adult tickets are $18.
