On the same day that Hispanic Heritage Month kicks off, boxers Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez and Gennady Gennadyevich Golovkin – aka GGG – will face off a year after their last match ended in a draw. Originally scheduled for Cinco de Mayo, the fight was rescheduled after Canelo tested positive for a banned substance. On Saturday, the two will finally get their chance at a rematch when they meet again at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
