Gennady Golovkin, the unified middleweight world champion, faces Vanes Martirosyan in the ring on Saturday. The fight was intended as a rematch between Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez, who fought to a split draw in September, but Alvarez is serving a six month suspension after failing two drug tests and is ineligible to box. Martirosyan took the match with less than three weeks’ notice. ESPN reports that Golovkin is unsure about rescheduling a rematch with Alvarez:

“...because Alvarez is not being tested, Golovkin isn't so sure he will fight Alvarez in September.
"We made a lot of concessions. We made a lot more concessions than the other side did," Golovkin said about making the fight that took place in September. "Knowing that and knowing other things about the other side, there is a question mark about whether there will be a fight in September or not. I have nothing to hide, but I don't see any willingness from the other side to offer some fair conditions. Maybe they will do it later, but at this point, no.”
The 144th annual Kentucky Derby is this Saturday at Churchill Downs (NasdaqGS:CHDN) in Louisville, Kentucky. According to Vegas Insider, the favourites as of today are Justify (3/1), Mendelssohn (5/1) and Magnum Moon (6/1).
Also on Saturday is the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at the Dover International Speedway (NYSE:DVD). The start time of the race has been moved to 12:30 pm ET due to weather concerns according to the NASCAR website.
In the NHL playoffs, the Nashville Predators tied up their series against the only remaining Canadian team, the Winnipeg Jets, with a 2-1 win last night. The two face off again in Nashville Saturday night.
