'Canelo' Is In Ridiculous Physical Shape Ahead Of Gennady Golovkin Rematch

Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez is in ridiculous shape ahead of his highly-anticipated rematch versus Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin.

The Mexican middleweight revealed his incredible physique on social media, uploading a video of himself working out in his California base.

His grueling training camp is nearly over and he's got himself in peak physical condition ahead of fighting Golovkin on September 15th.

The 28-year-old will be seeking to snatch Golovkin's WBA (super) and WBC world titles away from him when they meet in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The two feared middleweights were set to collide in May following their split draw in 2017, but the bout was postponed due to 'Canelo' failing a pre-fight drug test.

Here's hoping the fight stays away from the judges score cards following their controversial first fight. Horrendous judging marred the middleweight title bout.

Golovkin is excited for his first rematch of his professional career.

"The fans saw I wanted to fight and Canelo did not want to fight. The fans who watched it live saw the judges bringing crazy scorecards. When the decision was announced, everyone was saying 'Oh, come on! This is not real! This is not true," he said.

The undefeated Kazakh added: "Everybody was very mad because these people, the judges, killed the sport that night.

"This time, the world will be watching the fight and the judges. Judges hurt the sport of boxing that day. Maybe the judges had a bad day. This is a business.

"It is a new situation for me. This is my first rematch. I'm very excited because this fight is a completely different situation for us and for the fans. They get to see a fight with a real champion, two pound for pound champions. It is new. This is the biggest fight for boxing."

'Canelo' or 'GGG' - who's everyone picking?
