Alvarez will challenge WBC, WBA and IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin for his titles at T-Mobile Arena on September 16 in Las Vegas. He is a superstar over there in South America and probably been involved in bigger fights than his opponent in terms of viewership and build-ups.
Saunders, who hasn't boxed since last December, said: "I signed to fight both Golovkin and Canelo, but none of them have come off".
He has a single loss to Floyd "Money" Mayweather against 49 wins with 34 knockouts.
Possessing impeccable records and incredible knockout power, both fighters have also promised a "Mexican-style" drama show, having indicated that their intentions are exclusively focused on stopping their opponent, going as far as guaranteeing that this fight will not go the distance. GGG has to rely more on his power than his boxing skills as well.
Even though Golovkin hasn't been in as many high-profile fights, the magnitude of this bout will not affect either of them in the slightest.

I will say that Pacquiao is a much greater fighter than Golovkin and has fought better opposition. His flashy performance earned him a unanimous victory, winning all 12 rounds on all three judges' scorecards, outlanding the bigger man three to one. Look, anything can happen in this fight.
So many people think Canelo is too small, I don't think so, I believe he will weigh more than GGG on fight night and will break the body down with vicious rips to the midsection and uppercuts to the chin as GGG tries to hit him on the ropes. How has GGG gotten old when he hasn't taken any damage?
Either way, both of his identities will be there on Saturday for the fight with Canelo, which should be one of the best boxing matches in years. Triple G feels the only reason the fight is happening is because he struggled in his last bout against Daniel Jacobs, whom he proudly calls the second best middle weight in the world.
Alvarez should come back and will likely win some of the mid rounds as he unloads some big combinations against Golovkin, who tends to absorb shots on his guard rather than retreat.
