GGG vs Canelo is official: Watch Golovkin step in the ring and face off with Alvarez

Gennady Golovkin vs Canelo Alvarez is official, and UFC President, Dana White has given his early prediction.

Moments after the Canelo Alvarez vs Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. bout concluded with a lopsided win for Canelo, the long awaited bout against Gennady Golovkin was announced by HBO. ‘GGG’, who was in attendance in Las Vegas, went inside the ring for a face off, and the massive super-fight with Canelo was made official for September.

Apart from having the customary staredowns for the audience and the media, the pair also had a brief but entertaining exchange on the mic.

“I always say, Canelo Alvarez is the best, because I fought the best,” Canelo said through a translator.

“Good luck in September,” Golovkin said.

“Luck is for the mediocre people!” Alvarez responded, which prompted a smile from GGG.
