Golovkin and Alvarez has agreed to fight

LAS VEGAS - Minutes after turning what was touted as a big fight into a glorified sparring session, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez invited his next opponent into the ring.

Alvarez dominated the fight from the start as his quicker hands allowed him to land hard clean shots to Chavez's head and body.

At long last, Alvarez is ready to give boxing fans what they want.

And for his most recent bout against Liam Smith last September, Canelo Alvarez earned his customary $3-3.5 Million pre-fight guarantee in addition to proceeds from Mexican TV and PPV incentives.

Alvarez is the WBO junior middleweight (154 pound) champion and a former WBC middleweight, WBC junior middleweight and WBA junior middleweight champion.

In response, Golovkin said: "Congratulations". "Everybody was saying, 'Why are you afraid of Triple G?"

Westgate superboook has installed Golovkin as the early favorite in the showdown at -160 for the September fight while Alvarez would be +140.

Still to be determined is the venue. Las Vegas again will be a frontrunner to land the plum gig, but don't discount Jerry's World - the Dallas Cowboys' home stadium in Arlington, Texas - or maybe the Staples Center in Los Angeles or even a site in New York City. Surprisingly, De La Hoya says that all went well.

The middleweight bout went the full 12 rounds but there was only ever going to be one victor on Cinco de Mayo weekend as Canelo improved to 49-1-1. Chavez has had trouble making weight in the past few years, but he did manage to make weight for the bout.

In a showcase of pure excellence in boxing, Canelo defeated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. via unanimous decision (120-108, 120-108, 120-108).

Immediately after Michael Buffer announced the results, Alvarez told the crowd that Golovkin was next. The fact that Golovkin was unable to knockout the 30-year-old American may have helped. The fight drew 20,510 to the arena, according to promotion officials.

Alvarez's dominant display at the weekend must be put into context due to Chavez's limited challenge. The Kazakhstani is now undefeated in his boxing career having amassed a record of 37-0.

The fight, which amounted to a $70-dollar announcement for the aforementioned super fight, headlined an HBO Pay-Per-View event.

Alvarez's dominance leaves him confident about facing bigger boxers.

GGG, who has made 18 title defenses, was ringside for the fight. But he proved no match in the bout fought at a catchweight of 164 1/2 pounds.

Much can be said about how the lead up to the fight led many fans to believe that Julio Cesar Chavez Jr had a chance to defeat Canelo.

Moments after earning his 48th career win in 50 fights, Canelo Alvarez agreed to fight Gennady Golovkin this September 16. The T-Mobile Arena, which opened in 2016, hosted Canelo's fights vs.
