Canelo Álvarez edges Gennady Golovkin by majority decision in classic fight

Canelo Álvarez edges Gennady Golovkin by majority decision in classic fight”

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

Sanchez chastised Alvarez for "running" in their first fight, but he credited the game Mexican champion for fighting aggressively against Golovkin in their second showdown.

Canelo Alvarez celebrates after defeating Gennady Golovkin in their middleweight world championship boxing match at T-Mobile Arena. A draw like many boxing writers had it. Scores of 115-113 either way or a draw were easy conclusions to reach, meaning any talk of controversy is unwarranted.

The Mexican shaded Golovkin on two of the three judges' scorecards to claim the world middleweight title and, we all know it, set up a trilogy fight.

"I am a great fighter, and I showed it tonight", said Alvarez, roared on by a partisan crowd throughout on the eve of Mexico's Independence Day celebrations. He's a very good fighter. But for right now, I will enjoy time with my family.

It was a gratifying win for the 29-year-old (50-1-2, 34 KOs), who had served a doping ban after that first fight and come under much scrutiny for his use of PEDs, and he was in buoyant mood after his victory.

"There's no doubt about it. Golovkin won the fight", Atlas said.

LA Lakers basketball player LeBron James: "One of the best fights I've ever seen!"

"If the people want us to do it again let's do it again, " Alvarez said.

I mean, who even survives something like that? "Need one more between these great fighters". He was the one who was backing up. "Hopefully there'll be a third fight". "It was a clear victory". To add to the drama, the two fighters also clashed heads.

The fight was evenly poised through the middle rounds, Golovkin, aged 36 and perceived by many to be in the early twilight stage of his career, sticking behind his commanding jab, while Canelo continued to hack away at the body with tremendous results.
