Fight of the Year doesn't include Floyd Mayweather

"Money May" does not approve.

Fight fans - are you ready!!

Saturday evening brings a true clash of cultures, as Mexican boxing champ Canelo Alvarez takes on the beast from the East, Gennady Golovkin of Kazakhstan.

Despite the huge age difference (Golovkin is 35 years old, Alvarez is 27), this matchup is already being recognized by experts as the fight of the year - even over last month's Mayweather v. McGregor fight.

What's the difference?

The main difference is that we'll be witnessing two professional boxers, each at arguably the peak of their respective careers.  

Compare that with the Mayweather/McGregor fight, which essentially featured a retired professional boxer and a fighter making his professional boxing debut.  

On paper, that doesn't even sound exciting.  The fight would more-or-less follow suit, with the basics of the sweet science sometimes just going straight out the window.

Gennady Golovkin boasts a perfect record of 39 wins and 0 losses, while Canelo currently floats steady at 49 wins and 1 loss.
