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.

Moments ago, inside of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev., undefeated featherweight contender Joseph “Jo Jo” Diaz remained undefeated with a twelve-round unanimous decision victory over late replacement Rafael Rivera, who was filling in for undefeated Jorge Lara.

Diaz (25-0, 13 KO’s) is hoping to land a crack at WBC champion Gary Russell Jr., and he did what was needed from his end to handily defeat Rivera (25-1-2, 16 KO’s), over twelve rounds. Shortly after the final bell, scores of 120-108 and 119-109 twice were read in Diaz’s favor, as he very well could be facing Russell in the near future.

Canelo (47-1-1, 33 KO’s) had a little trouble early on adapting to Khan’s style, as the British star and former junior welterweight titlist stuck to moving and boxing  early on. Through four rounds several outlets had Khan ahead of Canelo, who was patiently biding his time.

As soon as it was revealed that WBC middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez would be making the first defense of his title against former junior welterweight titlist Amir Khan, speculation began to run about the size difference between the two men.

Canelo (46-1-1, 32 KO’s) has always been a solid junior middleweight, who has came into the ring well over 170 pounds on certain fight nights, while Khan (31-3, 19 KO’s) is moving up in weight following a three-fight stint in the welterweight ranks.
