Simply go to BT Sport 1 and press the red button on September 15th at 11:30pm to watch the fight. Gennady Golovkin and Saul Canelo Alvarez will face each other in the ring for a second time at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas to decide who the true middleweight king of the world is. Golovkin retained his WBC, WBA and IBF world titles in frustrating circumstances in their first bout when the contest was called a tie. With the other judges calling it a close Golovkin victory and a draw, the final scorecard called the fight a controversial one-sided victory to Canelo, much to the shock of the boxing world. You will also be able to enjoy three bouts before the main event –
• Former pound-for-pound king and former four-division world champion Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez of Managua, Nicaragua will make his highly anticipated return against experienced Mexican warrior Moises “Moi” Fuentes in a 10-round super flyweight battle
• Former IBF Middleweight World Champion David Lemieux of Montreal, Canada and Irish warrior Gary “Spike” O’Sullivan of Cork, Ireland will go head-to-head in a 12-round middleweight battle
• Mexican star Jaime Munguia will make the second defense of his WBO Junior Middleweight World Title against rugged Canadian contender Brandon “Bad Boy” Cook in a 12-round battle.
Next up, in what promises to be the biggest fight of the boxing calendar this year, Deontay Wilder will defend his WBC world title against Tyson Fury in a massive heavyweight contest. The contest will whet the appetite for the boxing universe as the current world heavyweight champion, Wilder takes on the lineal heavyweight champion, Fury.
And finally, the boxing event of the festive season will see IBF Featherweight World Champion Josh Warrington defend his belt against Belfast’s Carl Frampton in a huge domestic encounter. Leeds local hero, Warrington caused a major upset when he beat Lee Selby to be crowned world champion in front of a packed Elland Road earlier this year and will be going straight into another huge clash when he meets the former two-weight world champion in the ring.
