Now that the circus is out the way, we all have this to look forward too.

Intrigued to see who everyone is going to go for.

I was always in favour of GGG by late stoppage or points, but GGG decline in his last few outings coupled with the youth and style of Canelo (and the fact he is the draw) mean I am now edging towards Canelo on points.

Considering they're both hitters, I fancy this will be a points decision.

I'm more confident in Canelo than I was a couple of years ago. GGG doesn't seem as youthful but he still might be good enough to win.

I'm going for two scenarios in no particular order.

1) Canelo win by point's... (Judges love Canelo especially when he is being outboxed - khan/Mayweather).

2) GGG win by stoppage. (This is what i hope will be the outcome)

Canelo hits like a truck ad Golovkin blocks with his face. Only one outcome. Should have stuck to fighting European level.

i'm in agreement with all of you on this.

I think Canelo might be getting GGG at a good time if it goes to points i'm pretty sure he is going to get the decision regardless.

I hope GGG wins this fight I was very confident 18 months ago but now i'm not so confident its great for boxing as it is a 50/50 fight and it is the number 1 & 2 middleweights fighting each other.

Can currently get 10/1 on a Canelo KO/TKO on Sky Bet (9/1 with the DQ also).

I seen the same at 8/1 on Ladbrokes....pretty surprised with those odds. Think Canelo will find his range and then throw some real leather once he notices how easy Golovkin is to hit.

It does make me interested at that price.  I know that there was the precedent with Andrade when Froch fought Bute but the same price was being offered there and Canelo has always looked solid enough to be able to afford to go looking for GGG.

Only thing that put me of is the Lemieux fight where Golovkin looked pretty elusive. Maybe he does have a second gear when it comes to the harder hitters. If he's half as open as he was v Brook he'll lose his head.

I think im going to back the Canelo win at 6/4 and then have circa 20% of the stake on at the 9/1 price too...

Just cant get away from the feeling that Canelo is taking this on his terms when its right for him.

And just cant see GGG getting the decision if it goes that far.

He was certainly much more circumspect against Lemieux, although I'd say Canelo is a much more nuanced fighter coming forward.

I feel like GGG has been in second gear for the last couple of years. This is the first fight he's had in ages that will genuinely motivate him and I'm confident he'll outclass Alvarez. I can see it actually being quite cagey fight as I think GGG will respect Canelo's power, but he'll wear ginger bollocks out later in the fight and run out a comfortable winner on everyone's cards apart from the judges.

Great post and poll Laney...honest truth is I haven't made my mind up yet, but will poll and give my thoughts before the fight, that's for sure!!!

GGG is there for the taking and I believe Canelo will stop him late on. I believe Canelo will force the pace will find angles and will also find GGG very easy to hit. Canelo has really filled out into the weight. The only way I see a GGG win is if Canelo gets careless on the way in and walks onto a massive shot.

Close fight with GGG getting the decision thanks to a couple of knock downs.
