Jaime Munguia Talks Canelo-Golovkin, Cook, More

The fight last fall ended in a swirl of controversy after judge Dave Moretti scored it 115-113 for Golovkin; while Don Trella saw it a 114-114 and Adelaide Byrd favored Alvarez 118-110.

Golovkin, the unbeaten WBA, WBC and IBO champion, will be chasing a place in boxing history as he attempts to make a record-breaking 21st consecutive defense of his middleweight crowns against Mexican idol Alvarez at a sold-out T-Mobile Arena.

The bad blood between the pair has grown since Alvarez was temporarily suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission in April for testing positive for the banned substance clenbuterol, forcing a postponement of their planned May 5 rematch. Judge Adalaide Byrd scored the fight 118-110 Alvarez over GGG, who many thought was the victor.

"You couldn't deny there was some injection marks on his hands and his arms".

With one less world title on the line, talks between Golovkin's promoter, Tom Loeffler, and Canelo's handler, Oscar De La Hoya, became increasingly ill-tempered in the months that followed - and the fighters followed suit.

For the most part, the animosity between the two men has had a ring of authenticity about it. "It's a little bit different this time, but I believe it will be a big fight for the fans".

Who are you expecting to emerge victorious this time around, Gennady Golovkin or Canelo Alvarez?

"Those are the excuses that they are making because of what is coming on Saturday, which is a loss for them".

"I got excited and motivated by the fans", Alvarez said through an interpreter.

"I know it's going to be a tough fight", Alvarez said. He will make his second title defense against Brandon Cook (20-1, 13 KOs), 32, of Toronto, who weighed 153.2 pounds.

In their first meeting, Alvarez fought cagily, deftly slipping away on the ropes and consistently circling to the left to avoid the Kazakh's fearsome jab. Alvarez's official purse is $5 million, and Golovkin's is $4 million. Golovkin and Alvarez put on a real fight that had a little bit of everything - except a victor. Alvarez said he thought he won seven or eight rounds, while Golovkin disagreed.

Golovkin trainer Abel Sanchez hopes he does just that.

"This fight means a lot to me because of all that has happened and all that has been said", Alvarez said.

Oddsmakers are expecting the fight to go the distance again. "He would have got knocked out the first time, but he decided to make it a track meet".

Johnny Avello, executive director of the Wynn race and sports books, said if the fight went off on Friday that he'd need the underdog. "Every night before bed I visualize what I'm going to do, which is to get a knockout".
