Who wins Canelo vs Golovkin on September 16?

The fight is set. So who’s actually going to win?

Listen, it’s a big night for boxing. Not because of the fight we saw, but because of the fight we’ll see: Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin on September 16.

I know some of you have doubts that it’s actually happening, and perhaps that’s logical enough. But HBO has already started promoting it, and they don’t do that unless the deal is done.

What we know:

  • The fight is happening on September 16
  • The fight’s weight will be 160 pounds
  • Golovkin will be defending the WBC, IBF, and WBA titles, and Alvarez the RING Magazine championship

So we’re here. It’s done. It’s happening. It’s coming.

Now who wins?

Some of you have already expressed some thoughts in the comments of other posts, so I figured, let’s get a proper poll up and running already.

Will it be the power of Golovkin, testing Canelo like he’s never been tested before? Will it be the counter punching and skill of Alvarez, who may have seen something in the March fight between GGG and Daniel Jacobs?

If you had to bet money right now, who’s your money on?
