MEXICAN superstar Canelo Alvarez has eye on history when he takes on Gennady Golovkin for middleweight supremacy on September 16 in Las Vegas.

“This can go down as one of the best fights in history,” Alvarez said. “It really depends how the fight pans out. I’m going to do my part.

“We both have attractive styles. We both have the power to win by knockout. But that’s what makes this a great fight.”
