If he wins, whatever happens, he's fighting in December, and we're hoping that'll be against the victor.
However, he insists he is ready to take it to the Kazakhstani fighter as he bids to end his 37-match winning streak. GGG says he likes to fight "Mexican style", but is that something you learned or something you are born with?
He said: "I'm not thinking about Bernard's record".
"I don't like to talk too much", Alvarez said. The combination of styles has boxing fans salivating over what will happen in the same ring where Mayweather stopped McGregor three weeks ago. But a win over Golovkin would undoubtedly be Canelo's greatest achievement and arguably the most impressive middleweight feat in decades. Both fighters tipped the scales at 160 pounds. We're both ready for a big fight.
If you buy the fight on HBO pay per view, you won't be disappointed.
The 30-year-old Monroe Jnr - a 9/4 chance with Sky Bet - instead provides a significant test for Saunders (4/11 favourite), who has been trained for the first time by Sheffield-based Dominic Ingle, but aside from an Alvarez victory, he and Warren do not believe he will miss out twice.
"This is my biggest fight". I am going to give the fans a special fight a real fight. "These are the fights that define your career", said Oscar De La Hoya, who promotes Alvarez.
There's plenty for fight fans to ponder in the buildup to this bout. Between them they have 86 wins, against only one loss.
The Mexican superstar said the time for talking is over after weighing-in for his superfight with middleweight kingpin Golovkin. I think that day likely will come tomorrow. "I think the first couple of rounds will be very close".
I hope the two men deliver as much as the next fan - and it's worth stressing that nearly everyone in the position of writing about the sport is a fan - but such exaggeration helps nobody. For Golovkin, the fight is the culmination of a long battle to establish himself as the top middleweight in the world.
There's also the worry that he will have one eye on the other fight happening on the same night across the Atlantic between future rivals Canelo and Golovkin, involving all the other middleweight belts.
