Golovkin, who is unbeaten after 37 professional fights, is seen signing multiple autographs for fans and posing for pictures, including one with a group of police officers.
Although Golovkin will start as a slight favourite this weekend’s fight is being billed as a tight affair and the men involved are promising a spectacular event.

‘I believe the middleweight division will come back. And Canelo, he’s a very special guy. Right now for us it’s huge. Especially for me, it’s huge.’
‘This fight’s for you; this fight’s for all the fans who have been asking for it. We know that in fights, it takes two to tango.
‘I’m ready, and you know what you’ll get from me. Let’s just hope he brings it as well.’
Alvarez said: ‘I’m excited and happy that the fight is almost here. I’ve been focused like always with my training in this camp.
‘I’m going to do and use whatever I need to be one step ahead of Gennady in the ring.
‘Without a doubt, our fight on Saturday will be one of the great fights in the history of boxing. Golovkin will bring out the best in me.’
