The Mexican, 28, scraped a controversial draw when he took on the WBA and WBC middleweight champion of the world last year.
And his reputation was in tatters after he failed two drugs tests at the start of 2018 and blamed the results on contaminated meat.
The excuse was laughed out of Las Vegas as Canelo’s manager Jose Reynoso was a butcher for 32 years.
And son Eddy Reynoso followed his dad into the meat market before quitting the meat trade to become Alvarez’s head trainer.
GGG signed up for the rematch despite Canelo’s doping shame but he will not let his rival forget who is playing the hero and who is the villain in this thrilling sequel.
Golovkin, 36, said: “Everybody knows who won the first fight.
“I’m just going to say this because we’re discussing it; Canelo lost the fight. That’s it.
“He lost the fight, according to all standards. I’m for justice. I’m for truth.
“Those who take illegal stuff get caught.
“In their case, it didn’t go according to plan and they were caught red-handed. I know what I need.
“I need a little better work. I believe in my style. I think I win. A different story. A new story for me and for him.”
Canelo said a victory will spark the new dawn in his career and help him erase the last 12 unsettling months.
He said: "This is my biggest fight, and this is starting a new chapter, a second chapter in my career.
"It's going to be a big victory for me, and I'm going to come out of it with a new energy.
"The negativity doesn't get through to me. I always focus on what I'm doing. I have to think about the fight.”
