Canelo vs Golovkin: Watch the first HBO teaser for September 16 fight

Canelo. GGG. September 16.

If you happened to miss it, the fight between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin is official for September 16, following Alvarez’s dissection of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr earlier tonight.

The fight was announced in the immediate aftermath of the bout, which Canelo won on shutout scores over 12 rounds, and was played up with WWE-like pageantry and video packages and whatnot.

Here’s the first teaser bit from HBO:

There’s really no doubt that this is the biggest fight to be made in boxing, at least in terms of U.S. pay-per-view, which is still the driving force behind most of the biggest fights. (Though bouts like Joshua-Klitschko have proven that the U.K. market is dead in the running now, too.)

How psyched are you already? Did the Canelo-Chavez turd take any of the zip out of this announcement for you, or was it something that helped wash away the stink of that fight?
