A year later, Golovkin, Alvarez meet with bad intentions

Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez

Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez

TMZ caught up with Saul Canelo Alvarez for a translated interview in light of his rematch with Gennady Golovkin on Saturday.

Now, one day before their rescheduled mega-sequel on Saturday (8 p.m. ET, HBO PPV) at T-Mobile Arena, they still haven't posed nose-to-nose for the freeze-frame that fans and media want to see.

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.

In what is already being billed as a potential fight of the century, both Golovkin and Alvarez have been extremely vocal in the build-up to the clash about the other fighter, as well as how they see the fight planning out. The incident lasted only a few seconds because, after Alvarez bull-rushed Golovkin, their teams quickly got between them as the crowd roared.

A positive test by Alvarez for clenbuterol forced the rematch to be postponed from May.

Golovkin, the unbeaten WBA, WBC and IBO champion, will be chasing a place in boxing history as he attempts to make a record-breaking 21st consecutive defense of his middleweight crowns against Mexican idol Alvarez at a sold-out T-Mobile Arena. "I know it's going to be a tough fight".

That means they won't have a staredown until the final instructions before the first bell rings.

Golovkin ditched his placid persona, tearing into Canelo on a number of occasions in the press before demanding revised financial terms to fight the two-weight world champion once again. This is the best GGG I have ever trained.

"If Canelo gives me a chance and fights like he claims he will, I will knock him out", Golovkin said.

Alvarez brushed it off.

"I got excited and motivated by the fans", Alvarez said through an interpreter.

He has been tested repeatedly in the weeks leading up to Saturday's fight and insists, "I've turned the page", on his positive test and suspension.

Haye went on to mention that the main reason the fight is happening is because of money.

Much has also been made of the judges for the upcoming super fight, after the performance of the officials came in for ridicule and criticism after their first fight in September of past year.

A bout that was a thriller first time round.

Who are you expecting to emerge victorious this time around, Gennady Golovkin or Canelo Alvarez?

Topping the undercard is rising Mexican star Jaime Munguia, who saw off Britain's Liam Smith on BT Sport in July to extend his ideal record to 30-0 (25 KOs).

Former middleweight world titlist David Lemieux (39-4, 33 KOs), 29, of Montreal, was on the division limit of 160 pounds, and Ireland's Gary "Spike" O'Sullivan, 34, was 159.2 pounds for their title elimination fight. After their weigh-ins, a heated moment came when "GGG" and Canelo faced off, and trash talked.

The fearless Armenian lasted all of four minutes and 53 seconds before being clobbered into submission as Golovkin made a statement to his rivals in the division with yet another imposing knockout.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission also released the purses for the card.
