Both previous bouts between the pair have gone the distance and it's 4/6 that the trilogy fight follows suit.

The WBA (Super), WBC, IBF and WBO super-middleweight titles held by Alvarez are on the line. Canelo was beaten by Dimitri Bivol last time out, but that was a light-heavyweight title fight and the Mexican's 168lbs straps were not up for grabs.
Alvarez is the first and only boxer to be crowned undisputed super-middleweight king. The Mexican is a four-weight world champion and Canelo has only suffered two defeats in a 61-fight professional career.
The latest of those defeats came last time out against Bivol, but that was a light-heavyweight bout and Alvarez has defeated all comers at super-middle.
The only other defeat on the Mexican's card came back in 2013, when the 32-year-old was outpointed by all-time great Floyd Mayweather.
Canelo has beaten Caleb Plant, Billy Joe Saunders, Callum Smith, Sergey Kovalev, Daniel Jacobs and Amir Khan in a glittering career and 39 of the 32-year-olds 57 victories have come by way of stoppage.
'Triple G' finished his amateur career with an incredible record of 345 wins and just five defeats and there was a huge buzz when the Kazakhstan puncher turned pro.
Alvarez remains the only man to have beaten Golovkin in 44 professional fights and the 40-year-old is one of the best boxers of the modern era.
Golovkin has beaten top-level operators David Lemieux, Kell Brook and Daniel Jacobs, to name just a few, and the Kazakhstan man is a former two-time unified middleweight champion.
'Triple G' is a heavy-hitting fighter and 37 of his 42 professional victories have come via stoppage. The 40-year-old showed that plenty of ability remains with two recent wins over Sergiy Derevyanchenko and Ryota Murata.
