With the spectacle of Mayweather-McGregor fully in the rear-view mirror, we can now focus our attention on the most anticipated fight of the year (according to die-hard boxing fans): Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin.
SiriusXM RUSH Ch. 93 will be in Las Vegas for the Sept. 16 middleweight showdown, broadcasting live from radio row near the T-Mobile Arena. From the final press conference to the weigh-in, to day-of-fight predictions, Randy Gordon and Gerry Cooney of At the Fights will be guiding you through what should be a memorable showdown.
Not familiar with Canelo or Golovkin (GGG)? That’s OK, we sat down with both men to understand what makes them the best of the best in boxing.
How often do you see two fighters openly say they have a 50-50 shot of winning? It’s that honesty and sportsmanship (it also helps that they both carry thunder in their fists) that has so many sports fans excited.
And just to add a cherry on top: Oscar De La Hoya, the Golden Boy himself, is personally invested in this fight. Sure, he’s Canelo’s promoter, but he genuinely seems to think this could be a war on the scale of Marvin Hagler-Tommy Hearns. If that’s the case, sports fans are in for a real treat.
Don’t be that person who has no idea that one of the year’s biggest sporting events takes place this weekend. Show all your friends how much you know about Canelo-GGG by following SiriusXM Rush all weekend long!
