Mexican boxing legend Juan Manuel Marquez offered his fearless forecast for the long overdue middleweight super fight between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin.

The two men have been pitted against each other as two of today's hardest hitters and dominant boxers. Alvarez, the slightly more experienced fighter between the two, holds a record of 48-1-1 with 34 wins by knockout. "GGG", meanwhile has kept an unblemished 36-0 record with 33 wins by knockout.

Both men are also coming off impressive wins, with Alvarez finishing Britain's Liam Smith in nine rounds during their September 17 fight. Golovkin, on the other hand, knocked out welterweight world champion Kell Brook in five rounds, during their September 10 encounter.

Alvarez and Golovkin were supposedly slated to meet each other this year, however no fight came to fruition. For his part, Alvarez feels that he deserves to call the shots, and determine when the fight will happen.

"No doubt about it, everyone knows that I'm the A-side. The fight will happen when I want it to, that's the way it is," Alvarez said via Boxing News Online. "Big fights like this take time, negotiations take time, there are things behind the negotiation table that we need to get together and come across." 

Many have accused Alvarez of avoiding to fight Golovkin for obvious reasons, with the most prominent one being the possibility of him being brutally knocked out. Apparently, it is a belief that four-division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez also holds.

In a report by Miguel Rivera for Boxingscene.com, "El Dinamita" is advising his fellow Mexican to not trade punches with the Kazakh knockout artist, otherwise he puts himself in danger of being badly hurt.

"In this situation, the big question is whether or not he is capable of withstanding the pace of the fight," Marquez said. "But if he goes into this fight (with the mentality) of trading punches with Triple G, then he is practically committing suicide."
