HBO debuts 24/7: Canelo-GGG 2 on Aug. 28

Catch some behind the scenes footage of both fighters in training camp.

In anticipation of the big middleweight rematch on September 15 between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin, HBO will be kicking off its 24/7 series on August 28 which will provide an early look at the fighters in camp as they prepare for the challenge.

Via Press Release:

“24/7 CANELO/GGG 2 will provide exclusive behind-the-scenes access, along with in-depth interviews and a profound lookback at their first encounter which ended in a controversial draw. Both men have made it clear they do not plan to leave the decision in the judges hands the second time around.

“Canelo Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs), of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, is again holding camp with renowned trainer Eddy Reynoso. The Mexican superstar, who recently turned 28, has established himself as the sport’s top pay-per-view attraction. Canelo will be making his 2018 ring debut in the sports most anticipated rematch on Mexican Independence Day weekend.

“Gennady Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs), from Karaganda, Kazakhstan, now living in Los Angeles, is training with the acclaimed Abel Sanchez. The undefeated knockout machine, who turned 36 earlier this year, will attempt a historic record-breaking 21st title defense which would pass sure-fire Hall-of-Famer Bernard Hopkins. Golovkin made his 2018 ring debut on May 5 in Carson, CA. with a spectacular knockout over Vanes Martirosyan.”

With there being some personal disdain developing between Canelo and Golovkin, we can look forward to what should be a better build-up to the fight — one which will hopefully hit a fever pitch come fight night. Both fighters will be looking to make a dramatic statement in this outing which should only make for a better fight for the fans.
