How will the fight play out?

The first fight between Canelo and Golovkin took place in 2017, and it was decided by a contentious split decision. After Alvarez tested positive for the illegal steroid clenbuterol, their rematch in 2018 was postponed for a few months. By unanimous vote, Canelo won.

For this fight, Canelo is the favourite to win this fight, however, Golovkin is in excellent form right now, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he managed to get a win.
