Middleweight boxing superstars Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez are both looking for knockouts in Sunday morning’s showdown (4.50am). 

The heavy-hitting rivals drew their first bout last year in Las Vegas and they put their various titles on the line again as they fight for a R400 million purse.

Kazakh star GGG wants to add to his 34 KOs in 49 fights, saying: “If you have known me throughout my career, you know I don’t like to talk, I like to show it in the ring.

“This is 100 percent the biggest fight of my career. I hope it is going to be a better fight than the first one.”

Mexican Canelo, who has been accused of doping by his rival, hit back: “I know how to use this anger in the ring intelligently. I’m happy for all the support the fans give me and I will give them a great fight.

“I don’t know which one to laugh at or get angry about but their statements are all excuses for the loss they will take this Saturday.”
