If there was any question about whether or not Saul Canelo Alvarez would want to meet Gennady Golovkin in the boxing ring, Saturday night proved that the Mexican champion is ready. Canelo dominated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. to win easily by unanimous decision and set up boxing’s biggest fight in years on September 16th when he challenges GGG. In WWE-like fashion, Canelo called out Golovkin after his win over Chavez Jr. GGG then entered the ring so the two fighters could go face-to-face.

Give Alvarez and his promoter Oscar De La Hoya credit for not ducking the fight that every boxing fan wants. GGG is the most feared fighter in the sport and has 33 knockouts in 37 career wins. Meanwhile, Canelo has dominated his last five bouts and looks ready for the biggest test of his career. When the two meet on September 16th, boxing will have its biggest fight since Floyd Mayweather met Manny Pacquiao, but unlike that dud, this megafight should live up to the hype.
