Anticipated to be one of the biggest fights of the year, the encounter has taken on added spice with Golovkin accusing Canelo of disrespecting boxing fans after his two failed drugs test scuppered original plans for a rematch in May earlier this year.

A more aggressive approach from Alvarez, however, may well play into Golovkin's hands.

The courageous Armenian lasted all of four minutes and 53 seconds before being clobbered into submission as Golovkin made a statement to his rivals in the division with yet another imposing knockout.

Alvarez is 49-1-2 with 34 knockouts in his career.

Kazakh fighter Golovkin, the defending WBA, WBC and IBO champion, weighed in slightly heavier at 159.6 pounds (72.4 kgs).

"I had a great experience from the first fight", Golovkin said. It's one he's envisioned nightly in bed as he goes over scenarios that will help him win. "I know it's going to be a tough fight". He can only talk about the doping that got him suspended for six months by Nevada boxing authorities, but he can do something in the ring to alter the perception that his style is too conservative.

Golovkin trainer Abel Sanchez hopes he does just that.

A stony-faced Alvarez meanwhile claimed a psychological victory. "He would have got knocked out the first time, but he decided to make it a track meet".

The fight which takes place at T-Mobile Arena is a rematch of their controversial split draw last September in an action-packed bout which produced 1.3 million pay per view buys.

Judge Byrd was subsequently withdrawn from ringside duties for a short time by the Nevada State Athletic Commission before being asked to explain her scoring of the fight in a later inquest.
