Alvares claims Golovkin's world titles in Las Vegas rematch

Alvares claims Golovkin's world titles in Las Vegas rematch

Canelo Alvarez celebrates after his majority decision win over Gennady Golovkin. The two have now fought 24 rounds, and many of them were decided by the narrowest of margins. But judges Dave Moretti and Steve Weisfeld each saw it 115-113 for Alvarez, giving him the win and handing Golovkin his first defeat. This time around, a victor was declared as the judges who saw the tilt tipping over to Mexican's side, 115-113, outnumbered the lone judge who scored the fight 114-114.

Canelo Alvarez believes he fully merited a controversial points victory which ended Gennady Golovkin's 40-fight unbeaten career record.

He took control with a dominant spell in the middle rounds before holding off Golovkin down the stretch to claim a 114-114, 115-113, 115-113 win.

Unfortunately tonight's rematch didn't deliver a decisive victor, but it did give fight fans one of the greatest boxing matches in the history of the sport.

The fight was a rematch of a draw last September that left neither fighter satisfied. Golden Boy, who promotes Canelo Alvarez also chose to celebrate both men, even though they had a vested interest in seeing their man come out the victor.

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

Don't Be Fooled by Hurricane Florence Being 'Downgraded.' It's Still Very Dangerous
National Guard soldiers from the state, North Carolina and Virginia are mobilizing to prepare for hurricane recovery efforts. The storm's center was about 145 miles (235 km) east of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina as of Thursday night.

It was arguably the biggest punch Golovkin landed on Canelo in the fight.

The Kazakhstan native will take home a guaranteed £3.1million from the contest - a £765,000 from the first instalment of his fight with Alvarez.

But with scoring already criticised in their first bout before Alvarez's two failed doping tests in February, it is perhaps not surprising that once again controversy will remain attached to this rivalry, with talk of a rematch nearly certain.

The result was an upset, as a lot of late money flowed in on Golovkin, but I wasn't surprised. He was the one who was backing up. A GGG victory, like I had it, or 2. The ultimate winners may nonetheless be the fans and sport, as both boxers conceded Canelo-GGG 3 was a possibility.

Nearly immediately there was talk of a third fight between two middleweights who now know each other well.
