Gennady Golovkin has warned Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez there will be 'no doubt' about the outcome of their world middleweight title rematch on 5th May.

The 35-year-old thought he had edged a close fight in their first encounter in Las Vegas in September only for the bout to end in a controversial draw.

A rematch was subsequently ordered and Golovkin is happy to put his WBA, WBC and IBF titles back on the line against Alvarez in May.

This time there will be no doubt - I am leaving the ring as the middleweight champion of the world.

The Kazakh, who is undefeated in 38 fights, said: "This is the fight the world wants.

"I didn't agree with some of the judges' decisions in the first fight.

"This time there will be no doubt - I am leaving the ring as the middleweight champion of the world."

Meanwhile, 27-year-old Alvarez is confident that he will be the man to come out on top in the rematch and is targeting a 50th career win via a stoppage.

The Mexican added: "I'm delighted to once again participate in one of the most important boxing events in history.

"This second fight is for the benefit and pleasure of all fans who desire to see the best fight the best.

"This time, Golovkin won't have any excuses regarding the judges because I'm coming to knock him out."

Golovkin is 8/15 to win the rematch, while Alvarez is priced at 6/4 to come out on top.
