GGG comes up with an interesting analogy and comparison ahead of the biggest fight of his professional boxing career.
Indeed, two predators of the sweet science will meet each other this weekend in the ring when Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez’ months of stalking of their prey is finished – and the opportunity to go for the kill presents itself.
These two predators have the mental capacity to out think many of the other top level pugilists in the shark pool that is the middleweight division but on Saturday night, they will be facing the best the division has to offer.
Gameplans and tactics will be crucial in what many expect at some point to break out into a war. Who implements their strategy best overall however will dictate who walks away with the marbles.
GGG has likened himself to a shark as he gets ready for combat this weekend:

Unarmed hand to hand combat is still one of the purest weighs of fighting in the world today. Steeped in history for hundreds of years, these two men on Saturday are bringing boxing back to the classic days.
Two warriors with incredibly entertaining styles. Careers built on years of pleasing the fans.
Like gladiators did thousands of years ago to those baying for blood in the Roman Colosseum, Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez will do the modern day equivalent on Saturday night at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena:
