If there was a common opponent, he would surely know who hits harder, has better skills and can take more punishment.
While he didn't look fantastic in his most recent outing, Golovkin has an edge in one-punch power that I expect will be the difference in an otherwise close fight. The Kazakh worked the head and the body with sharp bursts, putting on a clinic in stopping his dance partner in the eighth round with Steve Willies jumping in confirming the TKO. Alvarez should come back and will likely win some of the mid rounds as he unloads some big combinations against Golovkin, who tends to absorb shots on his guard rather than retreat. The fight is more important to him. "The fight is huge" said Golovkin. He is the most unsafe opponent of my career, but I'm ready for him and what's next to come.
He added: "I am a big middleweight and don't want to give my advantage away, but there is not a super-middleweight that I fear". It will, no doubt, be a big test for Bill but if he comes through it then he deserves a shot at the victor of Canelo v Golovkin.
Even though Golovkin hasn't been in as many high-profile fights, the magnitude of this bout will not affect either of them in the slightest. "They would say not this time but maybe after the next fight". "So probably, yeah, five years more". "When I fought Mayweather, I was 23 years old".

My next fight in November will be for the IBF European middleweight title so winning that would put me amongst the top 15 in the world rankings.
Jeff Sherman, assistant sportsbook manager at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, opened the fight with GGG -150 and Canelo +130. I prepared myself for the knockout.
"I feel great at this age".
"On Friday he got a call about 12 that she was going to the hospital and I told him to go home but he said, "No we are going to train at 3pm".
Their last two fights have made me resolutely believe it is a Canelo victory.
