Canelo vs. GGG Boxing Odds, Fight Preview & PredictionCaneloGGG.com Boxing Odds: Golovkin -155 / Canelo +130 / Over/Under 11.5
Why Bet on Gennady Golovkin?The 35-year-old Golovkin (37-0, 33 knockouts) who hails from Kazakhstan, is defending his World Boxing Association, World Boxing Council and International Boxing Federation middleweight belts on the HBO card. The aptly-named ‘Triple G’ is the favorite at -155 and rightfully so seeing as how he has made a whopping 18 consecutive title defenses of his middleweight titles and is two fights away from tying the mark of the legendary Philadelphia fighter Bernard Hopkins, who made 20 consecutive defenses. The 5-foot-10-inch Golovkin has a 70-inch reach and has won an insane 33 of his 37 career fights via knockout. Triple G beat Daniel Jacobs via unanimous decision on March 18 at the O2 Arena in London to remain unbeaten though the win snapped an eight-fight KO streak in the process.
Why Bet on Canelo Alvarez?The 27-year-old Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) hails from Mexico and will attempt to pull off the upset as a slight +130 underdog. Alvarez, who stands 5-9 and has a 70.5-inch reach won the The Ring, lineal and WBC middleweight titles from Miguel Cotto via unanimous decision back in Nov. 2015. During the post-fight interview with HBO’s Max Kellerman, Álvarez boldly proclaimed, “Let’s fight now.” On May 18, 2016 Alvarez vacated the WBC title he defended when he beat Amir Khan earlier in the month. The WBC immediately awarded the title to Golovkin. This bout will mark the first time that Canelo has fought at 160 pounds. Alvarez beat Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. via unanimous decision on May 6 in his last bout and has won seven consecutive bouts since suffering his only career loss against Floyd Mayweather by way of majority decision in 2013. Over his last four fights, Alvarez has won two by KO and two via unanimous decision.
