THIRTY days out from his mouth-watering clash with Canelo Alvarez, unified middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin was comfortably inside the WBC’s allowable weight limit.

The Mexico-based organisation insists that fighters are no more than 10 per cent above the contracted weight of the fight a month out, so ‘GGG’ had to be 176lbs or below.

When the WBA, WBC and IBF champion weighed in yesterday, he tipped the scales at a svelte 170lbs, signifying that he is well on track for his September 16 meeting with Mexican star Alvarez.
