What happened in the first two fights?
The first fight in September 2017 ended in great controversy.
Going into that one, Gennady was the undefeated unified IBF/WBC/WBA middleweight champion, and Canelo had a rightful claim as the lineal middleweight world champion.
The result being a split draw when most felt that Golovkin had clearly done enough to emerge victorious.
Twelve months later they had a rematch. Golovkin had been stripped by the IBF, so it was his unified WBC/WBA, against Canelo’s valid lineal claim.
Canelo Alvarez won by majority decision. A very close and competitive contest, where again, there were many observers who believed Golovkin deserved to win.
The Mexican has now indicated that he will take the Gennady Golovkin trilogy fight next, then look to the Bivol rematch.
So, who will win the undisputed super middleweight championship? Canelo Alvarez or Gennady Golovkin?
Canelo vs GGG 3 Betting Preview
Canelo Alvarez (57-2-2, 39 KOs) be moving back down to super-middleweight and defending his undisputed WBA, WBC, IBF & WBO world titles . He enters this fight on the back of his second career defeat. The Mexican, who stopped IBF super-middleweight champion Caleb Plant in November 2021, ventured back up to light heavyweight to attempt to become a two-time champion last May. Anyway, Canelo lost to WBA Super light heavyweight champ Dmitry Bivol by unanimous decision. His only loss at that time was the one against Floyd Mayweather (split decision), when Canelo was too young to challenge the GOAT. Prior to the Bivol defeat, he went 7-0 since the rematch against Golovkin, beating also the likes of Daniel Jacobs, Sergey Kovalev, Callum Smith, and Billy Joe Saunders.
Canelo can certainly take some lessons from his last performance against Dmitry Bivol. He surely worked on his strategy and footwork during the last few months. Anyway, Golovkin is a much different fighter compared to Bivol, as the Russian light heavyweight champion is much younger and mobile than GGG, and boast a big size advantage. We expect the Mexican working in the pocket, softening up the body with vicious bodywork, trying to either stop the fight or drop his opponent’s hands to open up the head shots.
Gennadiy Golovkin (42-1-1, 37 KOs) has only fought four times since his defeat to the Mexican. He won the IBF and IBO middleweight titles against Sergiy Derevyanchenko in 2019 and beat Ryota Murata (9th round TKO) in Japan most recently to add the WBA (super) middleweight title to his belts just days before turning 40. Though the Kazakh is still a force in his advanced age, he’s slower to get in gear as seen by his struggles against both Sergiy Derevyanchenko and Ryota Murata.
Despite his age, Triple G remains an elite fighter. They say power is the last thing to leave a boxer, but his skills have eroded at least a little bit since they last met 4 years ago. Golovkin had much better success in his first fight against Canelo, where he used power jabs to keep the Mexican on the backfoot, being the aggressor. We expect the Kazakh to use a strategy very similar to the one used by Bivol last time out - constant pressure and wide use of the jab.

Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin 3 Fight Predictions
The first two fights have gone the full 12 rounds and both were very levelled. Anyway, Golovkin was much younger and quicker compared to the fighter we saw few months ago. The Kazakh defeated Murata in his last bout but was far from convincing. While there were moments of brilliance, he also looked drained at times. Canelo will be much quicker than last time out, having returned to his natural weight division. His counterpunching capability and speed of is the main reason why we back Canelo Alvarez to win. And this time, the slugfest could not go to the distance. Hence, we also back the Mexican to win by KO, TKO or Disq. As to round betting, Round 11 could be the one in which the referee stops the fight.
