Canelo-Golovkin 2: There Will Be Blood (Video)

HBO releases the official fight preview show.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

In advance of next week’s middleweight title showdown between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin, HBO has released an ‘official preview show’ on the fight, produced by Golden Boy Media and Entertainment.

The video covers a little of the backstory of both fighters and the events that lead up to this much anticipated rematch on September 15 — including a controversial draw and the subsequent failed drug test by Canelo Alvarez which delayed this sequel. The episode also includes commentary from a number of boxing insiders and other celebrity personalities who offer their takes on match-up.

Luckily for all of us, all of the talk and back-and-forth between both camps is nearing an end. In little over a week the fighters will glove up and have to back up all of their trash talk leading into this fight. There’s been insults thrown in every direction, and now it’s about time to let the fists start flying.

May the best man win...
