I've wanted this fight for a long time. If you liked Anthony Joshua's fight with Wladimir Klitchsko then you'll love watching this one! But Alvarez feels the fight is happening at the right time and looks forward to giving the viewers their money's worth.
Let's not forget that Jacobs was a world champion with 29 knockouts from 32 wins. I am Gennady Golovkin until I walk into the ring.

LA-based Golovkin has won all 37 of his pro fights, including 33 big wins coming by way of stoppages, building a reputation as a devastating finisher who can unleash uncanny and unorthodox punching power from either hand.

"That's true. He said, "I've already done my part".More news: Wilshere, Walcott among the players with Europa League points to prove
A decision-when Keith Thurman and Danny Garcia stepped into the ring in March this year, many expected the fight to end in a stoppage or knockout.
