Alvarez beats Golovkin by majority decision in rematch

What time does the Canelo Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin fight start? Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin Was Once Again Robbed in Favor of Making Canelo Alvarez the Guy

Golovkin and Alvarez fought to a controversial draw last September, and Golovkin will put his WBA (Super), WBC, and IBO middleweight titles on the line Saturday in Las Vegas. Before Saturday's close decision, he hadn't posted a win in the ring since May 2017, and his showing in the initial bout against Golovkin did little to appease critics.

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.

Two judges scored the fight 115-113 to Alvarez while the other had it at 114-114. But he said in the days leading up to the fight that he will not fall into the trap of trying to fight Triple G toe-to-toe.

Golovkin marked time with a stoppage win over Vanes Martirosyan and will head into the rematch eager to leave nothing to chance, having started sluggishly first time round.

"I am a great fighter and I showed it tonight", Alvarez remarked via an interpreter. 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.

The build-up to the contest had featured accusations by the fighter from Kazakhstan that Alvarez was covered in injection marks during their first fight, which took place at the same T-Mobile Arena venue.

"I'm bothered by all the stupid things they've been saying", Alvarez said earlier in the week. Great fight with two great champions!'

The 12-round fight was full of hard blows, as expected, with both pugilists giving and receiving a generous amount of punches. I thought it was a very good fight for the fans, and very exciting. We had good judges who saw it from different angles - I can't complain about the decision, but it's close enough to warrant a third fight.

"If the people want another fight then we'll do it again", said Alvarez, beaten only by Floyd Mayweather in a 53-fight career. Golovkin had blood streaming from his left eye, as both boxers fought as if they desperately needed the final round.
