When Gennady Golovkin Walked Through A 'Canelo' Bomb Like It Was Nothing

Mexican star Alvarez produced a performance of guts and resilience to inflict the first defeat of Golovkin's career with a majority decision at the T-Mobile Arena.

Analysing the entire fight, it can be concluded that Alvarez may have been ahead during the initial rounds, but Golovkin came into his elements as the fight progressed.

15, middleweight boxers Canelo Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin stepped inside the ring to fight each other again nearly one year after their first meeting in Las Vegas.

You could nearly see that it surprised Golovkin himself who was more the boxer type of the two this time round.

Two judges scored it 115-113 for Alvares, while the other had it a 114-114 draw. Scores of 115-113 either way or a draw were easy conclusions to reach, meaning any talk of controversy is unwarranted.

Much as I wanted GGG to win, I doubted that he could hold off Alvarez, at 28 eight years younger, one more time.

Two out of three judges assigned with scoring the fight, voted in favor Canelo's punching rubric, and thus a unified Middleweight champion was born for the first time since Jermain Taylor won all alphabet sanctioned belts in 2005. I am a great fighter, and I showed it tonight. Originally, the pair fought past year in September in Las Vegas. Luckily for Alvarez and Golovkin, they'd be able to somewhat settle their differences.

'Some very close rounds that could have gone either way.

"Canelo is a champion today, he deserves it, he fought a great fight", Sanchez said. "I'm satisfied with the victory".

Now that Alvarez and Golovkin are 1-1, who's ready for the inevitable third and final fight?

"Canelo did what he said he was going to do", Golovkin promoter Tom Loeffler said. Moretti and Weisfeld each gave the 12th to Alvarez and that gave him the fight. The pair was originally scheduled to rematch on May 5 until a pair of alleged positive tests for clenbuterol lead to Golden Boy Promotions withdrawing Canelo from the fight. The eighth round saw Canelo bleeding above the cut as Golovkin began to close the gap.

With animosity brewing between the two boxers, Alvarez had hoped to become the first fighter to put Golovkin on his back. He was the one who was backing up.
