This past Satuday night, Sep. 16, inside of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev., IBF/WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin retained his titles with a hard-fought and controversial split-draw with former two-division world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.

It was an action-packed showdown pitting the strength, power, and disciplined attack of Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KO’s) against the savvy and cunning Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KO’s), who boxed, moved, and countered more than we have ever seen him. After twelve rounds, scores of 118-110 for Canelo, 115-113 for Golovkin, and 114-114 saw the match end in a split-draw, with both men believing they have done enough to secure the victory.
