Golovkin is currently 6/4 to add to his record of 33 knockouts. The Winning Group of Rounds market could be worth a look too; though his last fight went the distance, that’s a rarity with his fights.
Those that believe the Kazakh can stop Canelo in the mid-late rounds can get 6/1 on Golovkin to win in rounds 7-9.
But if you think the challenger could have enough to outfox and stop his illustrious opponent, Alvarez is 28/1 to win in rounds 7-9. A decision victory for the Mexican is priced at 2/1. Full betting is available here.
Whoever ends up taking the victory, this one looks like it’s going to be a genuine blockbuster.
