The purses for Saturday's PPV undercard fighters are: Jaime Munguia, $250,000; Brandon Cook, $30,000; David Lemieux, $200,000; Gary "Spike" O'Sullivan, $400,000; Roman Gonzalez, $200,000; Moises Fuentes, $35,000.

"A lot of people stay too long at the fair and Triple-G is 36 years old, nearly 37", Lampley said. Golovkin, 36, a Kazakhstan native fighting out of Santa Monica, California, and seeking to break the all-time middleweight defense record he shares with Bernard Hopkins by retaining his title for the 21st consecutive time, weighed in first and was 159.6 pounds.

Armed with an iron chin, he will be hoping to add Canelo's name to the list of fighters he has felled inside the distance by inflicting the first knockout defeat of his rival's career.

Because of the controversy surrounding the drug tests and the scorecards from the first fight, which most believe Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs) had won, the second fight has become a grudge match thanks to GGG's outspoken comments regarding his anger.

The bad blood between the pair has grown since Alvarez was temporarily suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission in April for testing positive for the banned substance clenbuterol, forcing a postponement of their planned May 5 rematch.

After they were pulled apart, Triple G said: 'He showed the clown he is. "His whole life is on the line [Saturday] night". If he loses this fight, he's not just losing to Canelo.

"I defeated him at the weigh-in, now it's time for me to defeat him on Saturday". Judge Adalaide Byrd scored the fight 118-110 Alvarez over GGG, who many thought was the victor.

"In the eyes of most observers past year he fought the best possible opponent and he won the fight, in the eyes of most observers", Lampley said.

After they both scaled about half a pound under the 160 lb limit they finally came face-to-face following a seven month build up in which Canelo had refused to look at or speak to Triple G. He might be teetering on the edge.

Alvarez, 28, is one of the most successful boxers to come out of Mexico, having turned pro when he was 15. Should Alvarez be dominated or knocked out, it would raise suspicion about not only previous PED use but also where he truly ranks among this era's great fighters.

"And if he fights him, he's going to get knocked out". I don't think he will.
