On Saturday night, Sep. 15, from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev., Mexican superstar Saul “Canelo” Alvarez defeated his rival Gennady “GGG” Golovkin over the course of 12 action packed rounds. Following the action, scorecards reading 115-113 twice and 114-114 gave Canelo (50-1-2, 34 KO’s) the victory while Golovkin tastes his first defeat, dropping to 38-1-1 with 34 knockouts.

With the win, Canelo captures the lineal middleweight crown, as well as the WBC and WBC titles. The 28-year old feels he has redeemed himself with the big win.

“I showed my victory with facts,” said Alvarez. “He was the one who was backing up. I feel satisfied because I gave a great fight. It was a clear victory.”

Golovkin fought valiantly, yet didn’t do enough to secure the victory.

“I’m not going to say who won tonight, because the victory belongs to Canelo according to the judges,” said Golovkin. “I thought it was a very good fight for the fans and very exciting. I thought I fought better than he did.”
