A year later, Golovkin, Alvarez meet with bad intentions

A year later, Golovkin, Alvarez meet with bad intentions

In the first fight, which The Associated Press scored as a 114-114 draw, Alvarez came on strong against Golovkin in the late rounds to pull out a draw that was controversial largely because one judge had Alvarez winning 118-110.

But in March, Canelo sent shockwaves through the sporting world by confirming he had tested positive for clenbuterol - a banned substance believed to help to strip fat and build lean muscle - in two separate tests administered in February.

The preliminary fights will get underway at 8:00pm ET / 6:00pm PT. He has had 13 world title fights and won championships at 154 and 160 pounds. "But I'm going in there to knock him out".

Golovkin is from Kazakhstan, but markets himself as a Mexican-style boxer, who fights with heart, courage and a hunger for the knockout.

The undefeated boxing champion Gennady Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs) will defend his WBA (Super), WBC, and IBO middleweight titles in a rematch against Mexican Canelo Alvarez. Even so, Canelo told TMZ that his aim is to put Gennady Golovkin on the canvas within the first round of action: "Without a doubt, I'll be going in there to knock him out, that's what I've worked for", he conveyed through a translator.

Alvarez blamed the positive test on contaminated meat but Golovkin has questioned the 28-year-old's character over it.

Hurricane Helene turns northwestward, not a threat to land
Watches in effect Tuesday forecast a storm surge of up to 12 feet at high tide from Cape Fear to Cape Lookout in North Carolina. Isaac became a tropical storm again approaching the Caribbean, while Hurricane Helene was veering northward, no threat to land.

A bout that was a thriller first time round.

The fight wasn't the "big drama show" that Triple G likes to talk about, with neither fighter down and neither fighter really hurt. "In order to win a fight you have to want to win a fight". Prior to the fight it was questioned whether Golovkin could get fair treatment in Las Vegas and the scorecards seemed to prove that, with one judge, Adalaide Byrd... But both fighters seem determined not to let it be decided by the ringside judges.

"I'm going to go in there to knock him out", Alvarez said. "It's a real fight, a real war". His record of 49-1-2 with 34 knockouts includes victories over Shane Mosley, Austin Trout, Erislandry Lara, Miguel Cotto and Amir Khan, all world champions.

A live preview show (9pm-9.30pm) and subsequent build-up to the first fight (11.30pm-12.45am) with BT Sport pundits David Haye, Steve Bunce and Richie Woodhall will be available to all existing BT Sport subscribers on BT Sport 1 HD, BTSport.com (via this link) and the BT Sport app.

"I feel like there's no buzz about this fight at all", Murray said.
