Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin and Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez both make weight ahead of middleweight super fight

Gennady Golovkin and Saul Alvarez both successfully weighed in at the middleweight limit ahead of their super fight on Saturday night in Las Vegas.

The pair went head-to-head for the last time before the bell sounds at the T-Mobile Arena and both appear to be in supreme condition.

The Kazakh weighed in at 160 pounds, while his Mexican foe also tipped the scales at 160 lbs.

The IBF, WBA and WBC world titles will be on the line, with only Billy Joe Saunders’ WBO belt missing from the set.

Golovkin looked superb on the scales

Canelo also appears to be in top shape

"I feel great, thank you to all fans, this is boxing, I’m a very true guy," said Golovkin after posing for the face-off.

Canelo replied: "I don’t have fear of anybody, we’ll see, I’m going to show him who Canelo really is."

Golovkin appeared relaxed

Triple G weighed in at 159.5 lbs for his last fight against Daniel Jacobs, though the American hydrated to take a significant weight advantage on fight night.

Alvarez is fighting at the 160 lbs limit for the first time in his career, but came in at 164 lbs for the Mexican battle earlier this summer.

GGG is prepared to fight Canelo again, even if he comes out victorious, as he believes the pair need eachother.

He said: "This is the biggest fight for us and for boxing. This is a huge true fight. This is a historic fight and I believe this is not the last fight for us. This is the first fight. I believe I have the second fight too."

Golovkin has his long-awaited opportunity to win a super fight

Canelo is the younger, fresher man

Unlike their middleweight rival Billy Joe Saunders, the pair have refused to engage in trash talk, instead letting the prestigious contest speak for itself.

"You know me. I don’t like to talk a lot," said Alvarez. "I just want to say I’m prepared. I know it’s going to be a tough fight and that’s what I’m ready for.

"I just want you all to enjoy it like I’m going to enjoy it. I’ll see you all on Saturday night."
