Canelo vs GGG 3: preview and prediction
This third and final meeting of this generation’s best fighters looks set to be a full-fledged classic.
Even for the casual observer, GGG should have gotten the nod from the judges in the first meeting between these two ring kings and shouldn’t have had a point decision against him in the final bout, with the Kazakh being at least good enough for a draw.
Whether Golovkin can channel his anger at this injustice into a performance that leaves no doubt as to who the winner is on Saturday remains to be seen.
Alvarez’s confidence has undoubtedly taken a hit after his recent loss to Bivol, but Golovkin, putting on weight for the fight for the first time in his career, could well have the bigger impact on how this highly anticipated bout plays out.
Canelo vs. GGG 3 betting and odds
Golovkin is in the rare position of being viewed as an outsider for a fight with the bookies, with GGG hovering around the 7/2 mark for a win in Vegas.
Canelo is marked 1/6 to retain his titles, with the odds of a tie for this final chapter of the trilogy at 16/1 seen as a risky gamble.
