Kell Brook believes Gennady Golovkin's "days are numbered" and expects him to lose his Las Vegas showdown with Saul Alvarez.

The former world welterweight champion lost to 'Triple G' a year ago but expects his unbeaten record to go when he faces the Mexican at the T-Mobile Arena, this weekend.

Brook was stopped after five rounds and is adamant he showed a blueprint to beat him, but after Golovkin (37-0-KO33) went the distance with Daniel Jacobs last time out, the 'Special One' also feels he is past his best.

"You're only good as your last fight and I just think his days are numbered," Brook exclusively told Sky Sports.

Aguero hat-trick sends City top

  Aguero hat-trick sends City top Sergio Aguero scored a brilliant hat-trick as Manchester City thrashed Watford 6-0 at Vicarage Road to go top of the Premier League. A blistering first-half performance put City in control as Aguero struck twice and Gabriel Jesus added his fourth league goal of the season.Nicolas Otamendi headed home their fourth (63) before Aguero sealed his hat-trick (81) and Raheem Sterling netted a late penalty (89) after he was brought down by Christian Kabasele.

Last Saturday night, Kell Brook (36-2, 25 KOs) suffered his second consecutive defeat - and both losses saw the boxer deal with a fractured orbital bone. Last September, Brook moved up by two weight divisions to challenge IBF, IBO, WBA, WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.

In a recent video Brook tipped the scales at 12st 8lbs for the 30 day weigh-in; he looked incredible healthy and strong, while retaining a chiselled physique. If Brook can avoid GGG ’ s power and make it into the 5th round with his senses in tact, we could be in for a very interesting contest.

"We've seen the best of him and I think people actually know - and this is a big factor - he is just human.

"Everyone thought he could walk through everyone and most of the fighters he fought were beaten before they were hit.

"Now they know he is human. He can be hit and he can be out-boxed, he can be beaten and top fighters are going to go in with that mentality. As long as they have trained properly and believe in themselves, they will beat this guy at middleweight."

Brook is finally back in training after recovering from the damage to his left eye socket sustained in his world title defeat to Errol Spence Jr, at Bramall Lane, in May.

The Sheffield star suffered a similar injury to the other eye in his explosive five-round war with Golovkin last September and while he admits the unbeaten middleweight king's power could cause problems, is siding with 'Canelo' (49-1-1-KO34).

"It's hard to say, but I am leaning towards Canelo," he said.

"He has excelled over the years; his variation, his speed and his youth... everything is going to play big factor on Saturday night.

"I still think I showed a blueprint on how to beat Golovkin and it was touch-and-go if he won the fight with Jacobs.

"I just feel Canelo can win this fight if he sticks to a gameplan and boxes the right fight - it's just how Canelo copes with how Golovkin cuts the ring down as well as his big punching power.

"He is there to get hit Golokvin, you can hit him and he (Canelo) carries more power is bigger than I probbaly was when I moved up at the time.

"He's got the power, he's got the movement, he's got the boxing brain, he's Mexican, he uses the ring very well, so if he doesn't get caught early and tries to exchange, he will stick to whatever gameplan they chose.

"The gameplan is definitely going to box this guy and distance I would say exchange at times but get on your bike a lot of the time until the second half of the fight. That's what I would tell Canelo."
