Canelo Alvarez

Strengths: Large middleweight frame with layered muscle in upper-body and long arms…Huge power in both hands…Very fast hands…In physical prime with excellent stamina and athleticism…One of the slickest fighters in boxing…Warrior with iron chin…Picture perfect technique…Bodysnatcher that rips hooks and uppercuts to vital organs with sniper-like accuracy…

Weaknesses: Can be overly patient…Loads up on punches too often…Better at long and mid-range than in the trenches…Short for a middleweight…

Gennady Golovkin

Strengths: Arguably the hardest puncher in boxing pound-4-pound…Suffocating pressure fighter that destroys the body when in range…Cuts off the ring as well as anyone in the sport…Punishing jab can control fights…Excellent chin tucked behind a high guard…Blocks punches on the gloves with an airtight defense…Excellent at controlling distance with timing…

Weaknesses: Good but not great stamina and speed…Limited head movement…Questionable trainer…Tread on the tires is thinning at 38 years old…
