Canelo Alvarez defeats Gennady Golovkin by majority decision in epic brawl

Canelo Alvarez lands a punch against Gennady Golovkin in the 12th round during a middleweight title boxing match, Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018, in Las Vegas.

Golovkin threw and landed more, according to CompuBox, but Alvarez landed at a significantly higher percentage.

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

Two judges scored the fight 115-113 to Alvarez while the other had it at 114-114.

Two judges favoured Alvarez 115-113, while a third had it 114-114.

In last night's fight, Golovkin rocked Alvarez in consecutive late rounds-I think the 10th and 11th-and Alvarez wobbled momentarily.

"I feel satisfied because I gave a great fight", he said through an interpreter.

There was plenty of enthusiasm heading into last September's fight between Canelo and GGG, which included some memorable moments and flurry of punches.

This carried on much the same in rounds eleven and twelve, with Canelo showing a granite chin to stand up to a hailstorm of Golovkin power shots.

But Triple G came on strong in the final few rounds to make it as close as it could be. "Canelo fought a great fight, congratulations", Sanchez said. "Canelo fought a great fight tonight, and you can't take that away from Canelo".

Golovkin fell to 38-1-1, with 34 knockouts. (When asked about a third fight) Under the right conditions, yes.

The result was an upset, as a lot of late money flowed in on Golovkin, but I wasn't surprised.

Like Alvarez, Golovkin also suffered a cut and received eight stitches over his right eye Saturday night.

"It was I who pushed [Golovkin] back, it was I who was most aggressive", Alvarez said. The ultimate winners may nonetheless be the fans and sport, as both boxers conceded Canelo-GGG 3 was a possibility. The rematch had originally been scheduled for May 5 but a failed drug test, which Canelo blamed on tainted meat he had consumed, delayed it four months. A GGG victory, like I had it, or 2. Moretti and Weisfeld each gave the 12th to Alvarez and that gave him the fight.
