Unfortunately for viewers in the United Kingdom, the late-night West Coast start time means that the undercard fights won't get underway until around 01:00 BST (British Summer Time) on Saturday night.
There have been few fights in recent years that have generated as much buzz as this weekend's Canelo/GGG contest and though many are split down the middle about who will come away with the victory, pretty much everyone is in agreement that the bout itself will be a thriller. Alvarez has fought on a much bigger stage against much bigger opponents.
As I already said, strength wins this one. When two hard punchers show respect for each other's power, the fight usually becomes a boxing match where each fighter tries to wear down his opponent for an eventual kill in the later rounds.More news: Havens lose lustre as North Korea missile test fears subside

The day before the bout, the chances are WBO Middleweight World Champion Billy Joe Saunders, from Hatfield, UK, will successfully defend his belt against Willie Monroe Jr, thus making him the only thing that stands between the victor of Canelo v GGG and the title of undisputed middleweight champion of the world.
You would have to back Billy Joe to win that with his superior ability. It's rare to get two greats such as Canelo and Golovkin together at the same time so I'm really pleased to be a part of such an exciting era. Right now I feel great.
Oscar De La Hoya, who promotes Alvarez, made no secret of his disdain for the Mayweather-McGregor fight, sending out an obscene tweet just before the event, claiming both were disrespecting boxing. There were moments in that fight where he looked to be struggling.
Without looking past my next fight, just a couple of successful defences of that belt and I could be within touching distance of fighting the victor of this weekend's fight in Vegas. "That's what I've been training for, is to beat the best I've ever faced in my career". How do I know when to refer to him as GGG and when to call him Gennady Golovkin?
