The first meeting between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (49-1-2) and unbeaten middleweight champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (38-0-1) took place in Las Vegas nearly a year ago to the day and resulted in a controversial draw that many thought the latter won.
Alvarez is a +125 underdog (bet $100 to win $125) on the GGG vs. Canelo odds this time around and nearly lost his opportunity for a rematch due to a failed drug test that led to a six-month suspension.
Golovkin scored a second-round knockout of Vanes Martirosyan on May 5 in his only action inside the ring since then to retain his titles.
Neither fighter wants this rematch to go to the judges again, although the odds of another decision happening seems more than likely.
Adalaide Byrd is the judge who scored the last fight to Canelo by a surprisingly lopsided score of 118-110, allowing the draw to happen.
