Canelo vs GGG 3 LIVE! Boxing updates and undercard results

Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin will finally settle one of modern boxing’s most high-profile rivalries in Las Vegas tonight. A massive trilogy fight between two pound-for-pound greats is four years in the making and will see the undisputed super-middleweight championship of the world on the line at T-Mobile Arena.

The first bout between these arch-rivals back in 2017 ended in a controversial split-decision draw, despite many feeling that Golovkin should have been handed the victory. Canelo marginally shaded the rematch one year later, though again there was preciously little to separate the fighters.

Since then, Canelo has become the sport’s first undisputed king at 168lbs and even become a world champion up at light-heavyweight, though his second venture to that level ended in only a second career defeat by Dmitry Bivol in May. Golovkin, meanwhile, regained the IBF and IBO middleweight belts while adding the WBA version with victory over Ryota Murata in Japan in April.

An intriguing undercard tonight includes Jesse Rodriguez defending his WBC super-flyweight title against Israel Gonzalez, while Britain’s Kieron Conway meets Austin ‘Ammo’ Williams for the WBA International middleweight gold.

Rodriguez vs Gonzalez, Williams vs Conway on undercard

Before the focus turns to the undisputed bout between Canelo and Golovkin, there is plenty to look forward to on tonight’s undercard.

Jesse Rodriguez, who became a world champion at 22 earlier this year in sensational fashion, defends his WBC super-flyweight belt and his unbeaten record against Israel Gonzalez, who gets his fourth shot at a world title.

Gonzalez fell short on all three previous occasions, including against Britain’s Kal Yafai in Monaco in 2018, but two wins earlier this year have got him back into contention.

American Austin ‘Ammo’ Williams, the unbeaten middleweight with nine of his 11 wins coming by knockout, is up against Kieron Conway earlier in the night. The Brit has been out of the ring for almost a year, since his points victory over JJ Metcalf.

Canelo vs GGG 3 prediction

After two tight, controversial fights between two of the biggest names in the sport, a definitive outcome tonight to settle this rivalry once and for all would be the ideal result.

Despite some questionable scoring, there was barely anything to separate them on either occasion, though four years on from that second bout it is surely Canelo who has the advantage.

Golovkin is now 40 and will have to answer the question of how much he has left in the tank. Against Ryota Murata earlier this year he made a slow start and looked sluggish at times – a similar display in the early rounds against Canelo will not go unpunished.

Canelo’s defeat to Bivol last time out will give Golovkin encouragement and certainly went some way to fading the Mexican’s aura of invincibility in the eyes of many.

However, it would be ridiculous to start doubting Canelo after a defeat to one of the very best light-heavyweights in the world. He came up short against the Russian, but back at super-middleweight there is every reason to expect Canelo’s best form to return with motivation at an all-time high against his biggest rival.

It promises to be a thrilling bout, neither fighter likely to take a backward’s step. At this stage of theirs careers Canelo looks set to have too much, even if the Mexican is unable to become the first fighter to knock Golovkin down or out.

Canelo to win on points.

One of modern boxing’s most enthralling rivalries is reignited in Las Vegas tonight as Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin contest a high-profile trilogy showdown in front of a capacity crowd at the T-Mobile Arena.

Canelo puts his undisputed super-middleweight championship of the world on the line and will be hoping to bounce back from only his second professional defeat by light-heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol back in May.

The Mexican shaded a controversial rematch with Golovkin four years ago, with the first clash 12 months before ending in a hugely controversial split-decision draw that many thought GGG clearly won.

The arch-enemies and pound-for-pound legends will settle their differences once and for all tonight in a third instalment of their epic rivalry that is long overdue but surely still won’t lack for explosive excitement.

Stay tuned for all the live build-up to tonight’s mouth-watering main event, plus thoughts from both camps and blow-by-blow updates from an intriguing undercard.
