Kell Brook is picking IBF/IBO/WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) to defeat Mexican star Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) in their fight on September 16 on HBO PPV. Brook thinks that GGG has too much power and talent for the 26-year-old Canelo to deal with in this fight.

Mexican boxing great Erik Morales is also picking Golovkin to beat Canelo, who he sees as still a flawed work in progress at this point in time. Morales is glad that Canelo is fighting the 35-year-old Golovkin now, because he feels that if he waits too long, the fight will be spoiled due to the Kazakhstan fighter aging.

However, the fight is far from a done deal at this point. It’s been basic starting discussions and nothing has been completed at this point.

There isn’t a date or a venue for the fight as of yet. It’s definitely a great fight, says Showtime boss Stephen Espinoza. As of now, Broner and Mikey don’t have fights scheduled. If the two of them could face each other in the summer, it would be a big fight that would interest the boxing world.
