Canelo-GGG: Real Fight is going to the Center Stage

Let us now move on from the fight of Mayweather and McGregor. It’s already over, now, we go on to the more significant fight for boxing this year.

Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor ended in an unusual entertainment, we have just less than a month of one the greatest showdown of the history of boxing, and on that is, for the sport, far more significant.

Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin will meet for middleweight supremacy on September 16 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the same venue where MayMac fought.

Canelo-GGG fight is a year in the making, looking back 2013 from Alvarez’s loss to Floyd Mayweather after which he started refusing fights in 154-pound limit, and as he focused on 155-pound limits and, because he’s popular, eventually having a fight with Miguel Cotto for a WBC middleweight title fight.

Canelo defended WBC middleweight short as defended it once against Amir Khan in May of 2016. Khan’s speed was one of the playing factors but he was knocked off in the sixth round.

Canelo gave up the belt rather than face GGG. He refused on the weight and drop his catchweight to 160 pounds, would only fit for Canelo.

As Canelo stopped making any progress, he had earned a lot of money. His fight with Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. was a great success for him from its PPV purchases, and when it ended – Gennady Golovkin was introduced as the next opponent of Canelo in Las Vegas.

Golovkin is older than Canelo more than 8 years. He started his career in the US as he destroyed Grzegorz Proksa in an HBO fight. He’s holding a middleweight title – at least one version since 2010.

Both Golovkin and Alvarez are world’s top fighters, fighting in three different major titles and the lineal championship of the middleweight division. MayMac fight may be earned the biggest money, but for a boxing purist, Canelo-GGG is far greater in significance than an event.

Canelo-Golovkin Promotion Will Sink Sales But Not Mayweather-McGregor

On the off chance that the up and coming Canelo Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin pay-per-see neglects to convey regarding purchase rate, you can accuse promoters Golden Boy and K2 for not doing what's needed to get this session into the standard aggregate oblivious or you can accuse the business, itself, for not being in a spot any longer to ensure any kind of money related achievement. You'll have the capacity to point a finger at a great deal of purposes behind frustrating deals figures, however the August 26 Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor session, occurring only three weeks before Canelo-GGG, won't convey any offer of the fault. 

There's been a considerable measure of discuss how the boxing versus UFC super occasion will upset the marketability of Canelo-Golovkin PPV. Brilliant Boy organizer and president, Oscar De la Hoya even penned a flinch commendable open letter to fans, beseeching them to blacklist Floyd-Conor with a specific end goal to "secure the game of boxing" from a scourge so horrendous that "our game may never recuperate." 

Yes, the dread is genuine over at Golden Boy Promotions. The possibility that a genuine "super session," more than two years really taking shape, will be upstaged by a lesser battle highlighting two greater stars is something boxing fans and media have fixated on since before the Floyd-Conor session was even authoritatively marked. Also, at first glance, it bodes well that the greater standard benevolent battle will draw consideration—and purchaser dollars—far from the "better" and better-respected card. Anticipating that fans should relegate one hundred bucks for Mayweather-McGregor and after that seventy for Alvarez-Golovkin three weeks after the fact appears like a farfetched desire. 

Be that as it may, this line of thought, while coherent in the secluded hover of boxing fandom and media, isn't really reality in this present reality. 

Oscar will more probable be influenced by his own powerlessness to achieve the standard with his limited time abilities than by anything Floyd and Conor do. On the off chance that Oscar can't offer his battle past those boxing fans officially prevailed upon by the game and inclined to devour, at that point there's zero chance of him producing the blockbuster numbers he without a doubt imagined when consenting to give his organization's money a chance to bovine go up against, maybe, the greatest test of his vocation. 

Regardless of all the ensured blame dispensing and task of outside fault if the Golden Boy PPV doesn't convey a beast payout, the inability to offer will be the blame of the advancement… time frame. It shouldn't make any difference what's preceding or after with regards to offering an occasion as large as this and, truly, it's not in any case obvious that the two PPV shows will really be vieing for similar shoppers' consideration. 

It's a central issue when attempting to break down what amount of effect one show will have on the other—will those purchasing the Mayweather-McGregor uber display be similar individuals purchasing Canelo-Golovkin? 

Mayweather-McGregor will produce a considerable measure of intrigue and a decent segment of its deals from easygoing fans, UFC followers, and the standard inquisitive. Canelo-Golovkin, then again, ought to do really well with the purported "no-nonsense" fans. Sadly for the game, however, the bad-to-the-bone fan bolster, alone, sufficiently isn't any longer to transform an expensive occasion into a super achievement, at any rate not a win anyplace close to the Mayweather-Pacquiao level or even all that much past the million merchant level. 

It's sensible to expect, however, that the two battles can be fruitful engaging their own particular individual gatherings of people and specialty markets. Practically, neither will probably lose cash and each of the four headliner warriors will most likely gain more cash during the current night's work than for any earlier night's work (well, regardless of whether that will be the situation for Mayweather and Alvarez, notwithstanding, is easily proven wrong). 

Yet, in the event that everybody is being straightforward here, Canelo-Golovkin was never going to illuminate the standard. Regardless of how much "amazing" clamored frantically for the battle and revealed to themselves how huge this blending would be, the truth was dependably that the session would be restricted in its capacity to achieve the genuinely necessary easygoing fan and standard hybrid. Best case scenario, it might stand a strong possibility of being as gainful as this past May's Canelo versus Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. card, which created around a million PPV deals. Perhaps it'll be marginally more gainful, possibly somewhat less—yet that is it. 

No non-boxing fan is clamoring for Canelo-Golovkin and none, sadly, are being sold on it. That is not Mayweather's or McGregor's blame.
