Canelo Alvarez defeats Gennady Golovkin by majority decision to unify middleweight titles

What time does the Canelo Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin fight start?

What time does the Canelo Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin fight start?

This was the first loss for Golovkin, with his only other blemish being the aforementioned draw last fall.

Triple G was disappointed again, with two judges scoring the fight 115-113 in favour of Canelo and the third had it at 114-114.

Golovkin fought Vanes Matirosyan as Alvarez's replacement in May and after stopping him in the second round, "GGG" set his sights on Alvarez once more.

As for Golovkin, it seems likely that he'd want another fight in order to win his belts back.

WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOs) and Canelo Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs) went to war for twelve rounds on Saturday night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

It was his first defeat since the 2005 world amateur championships. At first I aimed for the knockout, I didn't.

"I'm very excited, very emotional. This is for them and long live Mexico". This time it was Golovkin who was upset, and he stormed out of the ring without talking.

Golovkin told reporters afterwards: "I'm not going to say who won tonight, because the victory belongs to Canelo according to the judges". He's a great fighter but in the end I got the victory.

Teddy Atlas is known to boxing fans to be a straight shooter, never shy to give his opinion.

Golovkin also said he would be willing to do a trilogy with Canelo under the right conditions.

Alvarez and Golovkin are due to make their entrances to the ring from around 4am United Kingdom time. Alvarez was 202 of 622, while Golovkin was 234 of 879.

The fight came after an acrimonious weigh-in during which Alvares nearly head-butted Golovkin, who is known affectionately through the boxing world as "Triple-G".

One year after fighting to a controversial draw, Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin were back in the ring for their highly-anticipated rematch, and once again it went to the scorecards - and once again there will be plenty of room for debate.
