Gennady Golovkin says he will leave it for Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez to make the bold predictions before a rematch which he considers to be the greatest fight of their careers.

Golovkin and the Mexican will return to the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on May 5 after a hotly anticipated first middleweight title bout ended in a controversial draw at the same venue last September.

Alvarez felt he had done enough to beat the WBA, WBC, IBF and IBO champion and has vowed to knock him out when they step into the ring for a second time.

Golovkin also thought he should have got the verdict, but is not dwelling on that decision as he steps up his preparations for another battle with Alvarez, insisting he does not plan to change his approach.

The 35-year-old Kazakh told Omnisport: "I don't think about what has been said about the decision from the judges, I just think about the rematch.

"I plan to do exactly the same thing I did in the first fight, I just go in there to do my job and get it done. I am very confident in myself and my ability but I will not give any predictions, nobody knows what will happen in boxing.

"I think is the greatest fight in my career and the same for him. I think it will be an incredible fight. I cannot predict how the judges will see it, I can only control going in there to do my job."
