Floyd Mayweather Jr. believes Mexican champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez will emerge victorious in his upcoming fight against Gennady Golovkin. The two boxing superstars are set to collide on Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Alvarez, who owns a 49-1-1 record with 34 knockouts, is the favorite to win on Saturday. However, boxing experts are not counting Golovkin out since the 35-year-old Kazakh has the power to score a knockout win.

But for Mayweather, Alvarez will likely run away with his 50th win in 52 fights.

The undefeated boxing superstar knows Golovkin is a dangerous fighter, as proven by his 37-0 card with 33 knockouts, but Mayweather thinks Kell Brook exposed Triple G late last year.

Mayweather said that Brook did a great job against Golovkin before he was knocked out in the fifth round of their fight in September last year. “He was just outboxed by a welterweight,” Mayweather told HoopJab.

Amir Khan agrees with Mayweather’s Alvarez-Golovkin prediction

Former boxing world champion Amir Khan also agreed that Alvarez has the upper hand in the upcoming showdown, Eastside Boxing reported. Khan said that Canelo’s punching power should not be taken for granted.

Khan knows what he is talking about, as he suffered a sixth round knockout loss to Alvarez in May last year. The British superstar said that Alvarez is also a big puncher and is difficult to deal with inside the ring because of his good movement and superior skills.

While Mayweather mentioned Golovkin’s fight against Brook, Khan said that Triple G also showed a lot of kinks in his arsenal against Daniel Jacobs.

Golovkin was expected to knock Jacobs out in March, but the latter managed to go the distance before taking a close unanimous decision loss.

Trainer believes Golovkin could get hurt in the showdown

Meanwhile, trainer Abel Sanchez is not expecting a walk in the park on Saturday. In fact, the veteran boxing coach believes his prized fighter might get hurt against Alvarez, BoxingScene reported.

Sanchez is not underestimating Canelo’s power, citing the Mexican superstar’s scintillating knockout victory over Khan. He admitted that Golovkin has never been in a tough situation, which made him worried about how the undefeated knockout artist will react if he gets tagged on Saturday.

However, Sanchez assured that he had prepared Golovkin for any eventuality. He is hoping that will quickly react and recover if Canelo manages to land a big shot in the upcoming bout.
