Ahead of one the most hotly anticipated contests of the year, Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez has jumped on the cryotherapy bandwagon just days before his title fight with Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin.
On Saturday September 16, Canelo will step into the ring and touch gloves with Golovkin for the WBA, WBC and IBF middleweight world titles at the T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas.
The Mexican, who has been defeated just once in his 51 professional fights, touched down in Sin City on Tuesday and will come into the fight a cool customer as he became the latest athlete to take to the cryotherapy chamber.
