Below are highlights from "Countdown: Canelo vs. Golovkin":

OSCAR DE LA HOYA, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions:

"Canelo-Golovkin is a throwback fight. It reminds me of back in the 1980s when Roberto Duran was fighting Thomas Hearns, when Thomas Hearns was fighting 'Sugar' Ray Leonard, and when "'Sugar' Ray Leonard was fighting 'Marvelous' Marvin Hagler. And, they were rotating with each other, round-robin with each other, and creating these special fights."

TOM LOEFFLER, Promoter of Gennady "GGG" Golovkin:

"This is two warriors going to battle, but for the enjoyment of the fans. This is really what evokes that throwback kind of fight that really brings the sport to a different level."

THOMAS "HITMAN" HEARNS, Hall of Famer and Six-Division World Champion:

"Canelo vs. Glolovkin is going to be a big fight. It's going to be a fight that people talk about for a long time. People have been waiting to see this for a while. I want to see what's going to happen myself. I can't wait."

ROBERTO "HANDS OF STONE" DURAN, Hall of Famer and Four-Division World Champion:

"Both of them have lots of good qualities. First, their strength. The second is that both hit hard. And the public will see that neither of them wants to lose. That's what happening."

BERNARD HOPKINS, Future Hall of Famer and Golden Boy Promotions Business Partner:

"This is the time to watch this middleweight unification. The last time there was a middleweight unification is when I represented the middleweight division, Bernard Hopkins. It's not every day that you see a unification in any weight division in boxing, so when you get a chance to see something rare, and it happens in the middleweight division-and the middleweight division has a lot of history. That's why this fight is a throwback fight."
