When Gennady Golovkin Walked Through A 'Canelo' Bomb Like It Was Nothing

What time does the Canelo Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin fight start?

WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOs) and Canelo Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs) went to war for twelve rounds on Saturday night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

After twelve rounds of incredible back and forth action, Canelo Alvarez was awarded a majority decision victory by the judges in attendance.

Golovkin landed a huge right in the 11th and pushed Alvarez to the ropes.

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

But Alvarez - who sustained a cut above his left eye which worsened as the bout developed - began to close distance in order to nullify Golovkin's jab.

In Charleston, South Carolina , streets were quiet with schools and many offices and businesses closed. South Carolina's Governor Henry McMaster has ordered evacuations along the state's entire coastline.


It was a raucous sellout crowd inside T-Mobile Arena, the assembled masses holding their collective breath at times as the fighters exchanged blow after blow.

If there's one thing that can bring the MMA world together, it's a much-anticipated boxing showdown with two of the sport's best.

Alvarez inflicted the first defeat of Kazakh slugger Golovkin's career after two judges scored it 115-113 in his favour, with another judge scoring it even at 114-114.

Golovkin threw and landed more, according to CompuBox, but Alvarez landed at a significantly higher percentage. He had always claimed to have been the true victor of the first fight and had now missed out on career wins 39 and 40 due to contentious scorecards.

Both fighters fought cagily from the outset, reluctant to trade heavy blows.

Albayrak and Sonmez were among the seven members in the Turkish fund's new board, the Reuters news agency reported. In August of a year ago , one dollar bought Three.5 lira; at some level of the last month it fetched more than 6.


The fight was stopped at 1:03 of the third round. Alvarez was 202 of 622, while Golovkin was 234 of 879.

With how close the first two fights were, and the amount of money that could be made from running it back a third time, it seems likely this fight will be made.

He has an argument that he won, but the so-called boogeyman of the middleweight division fought 24 rounds against a guy moving up in weight to face him and couldn't knock him down once. But Alvarez remained poised, threw a shot to the body and spun away to get to the middle of the ring. Alvarez won by majority decision.

For Alvarez, the fight is a chance to redeem his reputation, which took a hit after he tested positive for a performance enhancing drug twice in February, forcing the original fight date of May to be vacated. The extended wait didn't sit well with Golovkin.
