After numerous delays, superstars Gennady Golovkin and Saul Alverez prepare to do battle once again in Sin City
More than a year on from their dramatic draw in Las Vegas, Saul Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin are ready to do it all over again.
Originally scheduled for May 5, the fight has been delayed due to Alvarez failing two drug tests and will put the WBA and WBC middleweight straps on the line.
Many felt that GGG did enough to win the first fight, where he demonstrated his remarkable chin by taking Alvarez’s famous right-hand flush on the chin – and walking right through.
Alvarez has a 49-1-2 record and hasn’t been beaten since his 2013 loss to Floyd Mayweather Jnr.
When is GGG vs Alvarez?
The fight has been scheduled for Saturday, September 15.
But you’ll have to get the coffee out, because the bout will be taking part in the early hours of Sunday morning here in the UK.
Expect the main event to get going around 3am.
How can I watch it in the UK?
You can watch the eagerly awaited rematch in Vegas through BT Sport Box Office.
The new channel is launching on Sky, BT and Virgin, with this particularly bout costing £16.95.
