It’s Canelo-GGG Fight Week!

Welcome to the “Fight Freaks Unite Recap” podcast coming off a low-key weekend but with a huge week upcoming with the long-awaited third fight between undisputed super middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez and unified middleweight titleholder Gennadiy Golovkin, who is moving up in weight, taking place on Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Here’s what we discussed on this episode (in order):

Update on our latest contest and the cool stuff you can win for free.

The latest on rescheduling of the women’s world championship doubleheader — Claressa Shields vs. Savannah Marshall for the undisputed middleweight title fight and Mikaela Mayer vs. Alycia Baumgardner to unify three junior lightweight titles — that had been scheduled for this past Saturday at The O2 in London but was postponed on Friday due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

A recap of Showtime’s “ShoBox” card headlined by junior welterweight Joseph Adorno’s narrow decision over Hugo Alberto Roldan. Adorno has moved up to 140 lb. facing the unbeaten Roldan, who was making his U.S. debut in what was a very competitive prospect bout.

Also, hear my exclusive interviews with Golovkin and his trainer, Johnathon Banks, on all things related to Canelo-GGG III. Banks was not with GGG for his previous two bouts against Alvarez in September of 2017 and the rematch in September of 2018.

And, as for Golovkin, you’ll hear his answers in his native Kazakh language, but translated into English. And, he gives great insight into his mindset about the first two fights and how he plans, even at 40 years old, for this bout to be different Saturday night.
