NUR-SULTAN – Dimash Kudaibergen will perform the national anthem before the much-awaited third and final fight between Kazakhstan’s Gennady Golovkin and Mexico’s Canelo Alvarez after Golovkin’s personal invitation in Las Vegas, the singer announced on his official Instagram account on Sept. 15.
The fight will be broadcast live on Sept. 18 at 6 a.m. Nur-Sultan time on the “Channel One Eurasia” TV channel.
Golovkin and Alvarez first fought in 2017, battling to a controversial draw. The rematch in 2018 ended with the victory of Alvarez via majority decision.
