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.
