September 2017, September 2018, September 2022; Saturday night, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin will complete their trilogy at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, where they have already met twice in the past five years.
The rivals’ first ring fight ended in great controversy, the result being a split draw when most felt that Golovkin had clearly done enough to emerge victorious. The rematch 12 months later was also not without controversy, as Canelo was crowned the winner by majority decision after the closest of contests.
