    Canelo's style is tailor made for GGG. Should be a fun tilt, but I fully expect Golovkin to win by KO...

    I wouldn't be surprised by any result. This is the highest caliber fight in years, in any combat sport. Has potential to be Hagler vs Hearns 2.0.

    I expect Canelo to have the early success, and then GGG gradually getting more offensive success due to Canelo's lack of footspeed

    Canelo has beaten some quality competition but no one packs the punching power like GGG. With recent talk about Canelo's weight, there are some concerns that he may wear down against someone like GGG. GGG however hasn't really fought anyone of quality in some time, yet remains the champion with that said knockout power.

    I think Canelo wins decision. Don't think there will be a KO; just a lot of concussions.

    Canelo will be a good boy by the end of the fight.

    Canelo has big chance for win, but GGG has been knocking out grown men since he was little kid so i have my money on him. Nobody punches hard as GGG does compared to weight. Punching technique is absolutely next level compared to any fighter. Gennady Golovkin is definitely one of the greatest boxers ever. He isn't that popular, but every true boxing fan knows that.

    If I were a betting man my money would be on GGG. Should be a great fight, not like that piece of crap that was foisted on everyone a couple of weeks ago.

    I put some $$ down on a GGG win by KO/TKO

    Hoping for GGG but would not be surprised by a Canelo win.

    Neither fighter has been knocked down, but that will change tonight.

    This has been a great fight so far, but who's the commentator hugging Canelo's n*ts? He sounds very annoying.

    They both know when to attack and when to back off.

    I love the way GGG fights. Just stalking his prey around the ring.

    GGG is taking over this fight, I wonder how he would have done against a prime-time Mayweather.

    Canelo is sitting on the ropes too much
