Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez Edges Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin by Majority Decision

Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez Edges Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin by Majority Decision

Fans were not the only people angered by the decision with Golovkin himself snubbing the customary post-fight interview with HBO's Max Kellerman, storming off following the controversial result.

Canelo Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin fought for a second time in Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena in a follow-up performance from their first outing.

Golovkin lands a punch on Alvarez during their WBC/WBA middleweight title fight at T-Mobile Arena.

Alvarez inflicted the first defeat of Kazakh slugger Golovkin's career after two judges scored it 115-113 in his favor, with another judge scoring it even at 114-114. Scores were 114-114, 115-113, 115-113 for Canelo.

The shot that has gained the most attention in the aftermath of the fight is Canelo's knockout blow that caught Golovkin right in the kisser. However, it was a far cry from the controversy a year ago when judge Adelaide Byrd awarded Canelo with a scorecard of 118-110, one of the most egregious scorecards in the history of boxing.

Phil Jay is Editor of World Boxing News. He's a great opponent but every fighter depends on the fighter. The twelve and final round with the fight hanging close Canelo went after Golovkin but slipped. And it came at the hands of the red-headed Alvarez, a Mexican star whose positive test for clenbuterol forced the rematch to be postponed from May. "I'm very emotional", said Alvarez, who has previously held world titles at middleweight and light-middleweight.

"It was I who pushed [Golovkin] back, it was I who was most aggressive", Alvarez said.

Both fighters were cut in the course of the bout, Canelo sporting a long laceration underneath his left eyebrow, with Golovkin cut around the right eye and with swelling to his high cheekbones. "It was a clear victory".

Golovkin fell to 38-1-1, with 34 knockouts. He kept the fight in the middle of the ring, he took the action to Golovkin and he was never hesitant to mix it up and trade blows. "He fought a great fight".
