It looked like the Canelo vs. GGG trilogy would never happen for years, but Gennady Golovkin has finally gotten his chance at redemption. The Kazakhstani great has had four years to digest the disputed setback that appeared to many to be a Golovkin victory – or, failing that, a draw – but does he still have the physical tools to go blow-for-blow with Saul Alvarez at the age of 40? Their past two fights are boxing legends, so keep reading to learn how to watch a Canelo vs GGG 3 live stream online from anywhere.
They held a lighthearted final press conference in Las Vegas before their trilogy fight yesterday. Today’s weigh-in is planned for 3.30pm ET / 8.30pm BST. We’ve also included below information on watching the weigh-in live stream for free.
When the pound-for-pound boxing superstars first met in September 2017, GGG was 35, three years older than Canelo is now. Golovkin landed 218 punches to Canelo’s 169 in a fierce duel, but the judges were split, and the fight was declared a draw. Most online viewers could accept that result as fair, but judging Adalaide Byrd’s 118-110 scorecard, which favoured Canelo, raised many questions.
The rematch was supposed to occur in May 2018, but it was postponed after Canelo tested positive for clenbuterol, a banned drug that can help to breathe and increase work rate. The pair fought again in September after Canelo had completed his ban, and it was an even more closely contested classic, which GGG appeared to have won.
He landed 234 punches to Canelo’s 202, but the Mexican landed 143 power punches to 116 from the Kazakh. Two judges scored Canelo 115-113, and he walked away with Golovkin’s WBA (Super), WBC, and IBO middleweight championships, as well as The Ring middleweight title that he’d been stripped of.
It left a sour taste in the mouths of not just Golovkin and his fans but also many neutrals, and after four years of resentment, we now have another major drama show. The Mexican has defended his IBF, WBA (super), WBC, and WBO super middleweight titles. Follow our instructions to see a live stream of Canelo vs. GGG 3 from anywhere.

Who exactly is Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez?
Saúl Álvarez Barragán is a Mexican boxer better known as “Canelo,” which means “cinnamon” and refers to his red hair.
The 32-year-old Guadalajara native is widely regarded as the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world and has been for the better for a decade.
He has four world titles: light middleweight, middleweight, light heavyweight, and super middleweight. He is also the only boxer to become the undisputed super middleweight champion.
There have been setbacks along the way, including an unfortunate return to light heavyweight against undefeated WBA (Super) champion Dmitry Bivol in May of this year, and a humiliating defeat to Floyd Mayweather Jr., the then WBA (Super) light middleweight champion, WBC, and Ring magazine welterweight champion, in 2013.
However, in the broader scheme of things, such instances have undoubtedly boosted his reputation as a boxer who doesn’t shy away from the most challenging situations, though Gennady Golovkin may disagree.
Canelo has won 56 of his 61 professional fights, 39 of which he has won by knockout. He’s drawn twice and lost twice.
His only losses were to Floyd Mayweather in September 2013 (for Mayweather’s WBA (Super) light middleweight championship and Canelo’s WBC and The Ring light middleweight titles) and to Dmitry Bivol in May 2022 (for Bivol’s WBA (Super) light heavyweight title).
In June 2006, he drew Jorge Juarez, and in September 2017, he drew Gennady Golovkin (for Golovkin’s WBA (Super), WBC, and IBF middleweight championships, as well as Canelo’s The Ring middleweight title).
Canelo has defeated talents such as Caleb Plant, Billy Joe Saunders, Callum Smith, Amir Khan, and Miguel Cotto.
Who exactly is Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin?
Gennady Gennadyevich Golovkin is a Kazakhstani boxer who is widely regarded as one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the world and one of the hardest-hitting middleweights of all time.
The 40-year-old Karaganda native is recognized by the nicknames “GGG” and “Triple G.”
He is the current unified middleweight world champion, having held the IBF, IBO, and WBA (Super) championships since October of this year. From 2014 to 2018, he held the unified WBA (Super), WBC, and IBO middleweight titles before being dethroned by Canelo.
The GGG record
GGG has won 42 of his 44 professional fights, 37 of which he has won by knockout. He has one loss and one draw versus Canelo.
The split decision tie with Canelo in September 2017 (for Canelo’s The Ring middleweight title and GGG’s WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, and IBO middleweight crowns) was heated. GGG was primarily thought to have won a closely contested fight, but judge Adalaide Byrd scored Canelo significantly in his favour.
In September 2018, he was defeated by Canelo (for the vacant The Ring middleweight title and GGG’s WBA (Super), WBC, and IBO middleweight crowns). Although many media sources and the general public perceived the fight differently, Canelo won by majority decision, saying it should have been a tie or a victory for GGG.
Ryta Murata, Sergiy Derevyanchenko, and Kell Brook are among the big-name boxers GGG has defeated. However, his list of victims would probably be considerably longer and starrier if he hadn’t been shunned like the plague throughout his best years.
What occurred the last time?
Canelo and GGG last fought in September of this year. The fight lasted the distance and concluded with the fighters, both bleeding from cuts above their eyes, embracing.
Many fans were surprised when judges Dave Moretti and Steve Weisfeld both scored Canelo 115-113, but judge Glenn Feldman scored it 114-114.
The undercard expands with the return of several intriguing names to the ring. In the co-feature, Jesse Rodriguez defends his WBC super flyweight title against Israel Gonzalez. Austin Williams returns to the ring in the middleweight division against Kieron Conway. In the super middleweight division, Diego Pacheco and Enrique Collazo square off. And veteran Gabe Rosado is back in action against Ali Akhmedov at super middleweight.
