Who won Canelo vs GGG's first fight?

Canelo Alvarez poses during a news conference Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018, in Las Vegas.

Gennady Golovkin is a solid favorite in his rematch with Canelo Alvarez on Saturday in Las Vegas, but the bulk of the early action at sportsbooks, including some of the largest bets, have been on the underdog. Some thought Alvarez shied away from a physical brawl with Golovkin that betrayed the warrior reputation that Mexican fighters and fans embrace.

"At the moment I put him in the top five, and the only reason I don't put him any higher is because he needs that fight that people recognize, the signature fight or legacy fight", Sanchez said.

Alvarez and Golovkin get another chance to settle what they couldn't last September when they meet in a rematch of their first fight, which ended in a draw.

But the scorecards that night left a bitter taste.

That showed at Friday's weigh-in, when the two fighters had to be separated in their only face-to-face appearance before the fight.

Then a scheduled rematch in May was canceled when Alvarez failed two voluntary Anti-Doping Association drug tests for the banned performance-enhancing drug clenbuterol.

Alvarez blamed the test results on eating contaminated meat in his native Mexico.

"It's a real fight, a real war". You wouldn't have known his boxing legacy is on the line Saturday night when he faces Gennady "Triple-G" Golovkin in a rematch for the middleweight championship.
