Check out all the ways you can watch Canelo vs. GGG 2 this Saturday night. The battle for ‘Supremacy’ ended in disappointment last year after Saul ‘Canelo’ Álvarez and Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin battled for 12 rounds at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV. The fight was thrilling, and it did great PPV numbers (1.3million), but the contest was controversially ruled as a draw. This is despite many onlookers thinking GGG did enough to win the fight. The infamous Adelaide Byrd disagreed with this, scoring 118-110 for Álvarez.
