I think GGG will be very competitive in this fight and will surprise many. He'll fight a more age smart fight like he did in Japan recently. Canelo will try to exploit the apparent weakness of GGG's body exposed by Woodsman and will hurt him either in the middle or championship rounds. There's a good chance he might do enough damage to get a stoppage win in the late rounds however I think GGG is still like a rock for a 40 year old dude that is and will weather the storm to the final bell. I dunno if Malecinnamon can do enough piled up damage in the middle rounds then I think he might get a 10/11/12 round stoppage but I don't think GGG will let him. It'll be somewhat close like the previous fights but I think the age advantage will prevail and there will be no doubt as to who won this one so probably 116-112 and 117-111 varieties but it'll be unanimous this time. I think after this GGG will probably get fed to Munguia and Malecinnamon will probably get it on with Chat or Benavidez. Yeah, I pretty much figured Malecinnamon was not going to seek the rematch with the fighting pride of Indio, California none other than Dmitry Buffalo.....

Sadly, I think Alvarez stops him this time. I'm going with Alvarez, late stoppage.

Prediction.

The first 2 fights were competitive and close, Canelo has been more active than Golovkin in the 4 years since the second fight, I don't think he's naturally bigger than Golovkin, but he's experienced at 168, Golovkin isn't, the weight favours Canelo heavily. Golovkin comes off a good win, and a good performance, Canelo comes off a loss, that might give Golovkin a mental edge. Canelo isn't young, it's possible he's started to decline, but he peaked after he beat Golovkin, and Golovkin must have declined a lot since then from 36-40, so the timing is well on Canelo's side. Golovkin still has a much better jab than Canelo, he's never relied on speed or quick reactions, his power is still there, but his resistance isn't the same, he's extremely slow, and he can't fight consistently, at a high tempo now, Canelo did better against Golovkin when he pushed him on the back foot, and his strength advantage will make it easier to back him up this time.

I think the fight will be competitive for about 4 rounds, Canelo will be on the front foot throughout, will make Golovkin work, Golovkin will throw power shots behind his jab, Canelo won't match Golovkin's output because of the jab, but he will defend well, and the first few rounds will take a lot more out of Golovkin than Canelo. I think as soon as Canelo is able to step in with the left to the body, the fight will change, the more Canelo lands, the easier a target Golovkin will be, Canelo will sap everything out of Golovkin with clean clusters of shots to head and body, will keep him under consistent pressure for 1-2 one sided rounds, Golovkin's shots will have no affect, and as soon as he's static, Canelo will stop him.

My prediction is Canelo in 7 or 8 rounds, I wouldn't be surprised if this went to the late rounds, but I expect Canelo to stop Golovkin at this stage.
