The most eagerly awaited fight of the year is finally upon us, as the two best middleweights in the world clash again
It’s finally time for Gennady Golovkin and Saul Alvarez to settle their differences in the ring once and for all.
Almost a year to the day since they last went toe-to-toe in Las Vegas, the biggest stars of the middleweight division will battle it out once again over 12 gruelling rounds.
When is the fight?
The long-awaited rematch will once again be held at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
It’s expected that the main event will start around 4am UK time.
Last September GGG felt he had done enough to secure victory over Canelo but the judges ruled the fight a draw.
Where can I live stream Canelo vs GGG 2 or watch on TV?
Here’s the important bit, especially with the price of a seat ringside hitting a whopping £28,500.
BT Sport Box Office is carrying the fight, with a one-off fee of £16.95 required to watch it through either BT TV, Sky or Virgin Media.
If you’re wondering why you’ve never heard of the channel before, it’s because this is the launch event – with Fury vs Wilder and Warrington vs Selby also slated to be shown through the service.
Unfortunately, these events – including this bout – won’t initially be available to live stream through an app or online player.
The channel will be broadcast in HD only.
Regular BT subscribers can still watch build-up to the first undercard fight on BT Sport 1 and on the BT Sport app between 11.30pm and 12.45am.
Who is on the undercard?
Jaime Munguia defends his WBO light middleweight title against Brandon Cook in the chief supporting bout.
Irishman Spike O’Sullivan is also on the bill and faces David Lemieux.
Golovkin beat Lemieux back in October 2015, and Billy Joe Saunders also saw off the Canadian in December.
