A massive middleweight matchup will be taking place in September, and members of BetVictor can already place their bet on Golovkin vs. Alvarez!
After Canelo Alvarez dominated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, it was announced that he would be taking on one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world, Gennady Golovkin. Both of these men are considered to be in the pound for pound best discussion, and those that like to bet on sports in the UK have access to some great odds here.
Alvarez’s first major test came in September of 2014 when he took on Floyd Mayweather. That fight proved to be too much, too soon for the Mexican superstar, as he was out boxed for the majority of the contest. Since then, he’s gone 7-0 with 4 of those wins coming by either KO or TKO.
Gennady “GGG” Golovkin is one of the most feared men in boxing today. With a perfect record of 37-0, he’s looked nearly unstoppable in his career, and is considered to be one of the hardest hitters in the entire sport. Let’s look at the odds to bet on Golovkin vs. Alvarez.

Canelo Alvarez truly turned a corner after the loss to Mayweather, and had arguably his best performance to date with the recent win over Chavez Jr. He’s entering this fight as the slight boxing betting underdog, but has a great shot at making UK gambling news with the upset victory. Alvarez’s odds to beat Golovkin are set at 11/8.
