Golovkin suffers first loss of pro career as Alvares prevails

Share

"He's so good with his feet and if one of them has got the boxing brain to change their gameplan from the first fight, then Golvkin has more of that".

The rematch was originally staged for May earlier in the year before Alvarez tested positive for the performance-enhancing substance Clenbuterol, which he claims was the result of eating spoiled meat.

Canelo Alvarez edged Gennady Golovkin by majority decision in their keenly-awaited rematch Sunday (Manila time) at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The judges are good judges and it was a good fight.

"There's no doubt about it. Golovkin won the fight", Atlas said.

There was plenty of respect between the two fighters in the opening round, while Canelo continued to take it to Golovkin - pushing the defending champion onto the backfoot.

Manafort and Mueller have reached a tentative plea deal
In Manafort's first trial, prosecutors showed the jury around 400 documents, emails, and financial records to make their case. Prosecutors have said Manafort and Kilimnik conspired to tamper with witnesses, an allegation that later led in June to U.S.

The stakes are high as whoever wins will have a crack at taking on the victor of the main fight. "I think we controlled the fight". We appreciate all of the support but we can't be hypocritical and complain about every damn decision you receive. I feel satisfied because I gave a great fight. Canelo and Golovkin traded away to the final bell.

The Mexican, who had been accused of "running" in the first fight, came forward relentlessly and dominated the mid part of the fight. He's now seen three of his last four fights go to the scorecards. Both landed well to the head and Golovkin (38-1-1) controlled some rounds with his jab though neither were ever in any trouble of going down.

Golovkin had been denied a win in the pair's first bout, feeling he deserved a win but having to live with a draw.

Canelo Alvarez believes he fully merited a controversial points victory which ended Gennady Golovkin's 40-fight unbeaten career record. Yet despite getting rocked twice in Round 10, Alvarez bit down and weathered the storm in a manner that was nothing short of inspiring. It was a technical battle in which Alvarez's skill and quickness edged it out. The subsequent years saw Alvarez slowly eschew his dare-to-be-great persona in favor of a star who knows how to wield the leverage that comes from being a PPV A-side. He was the one who was backing up. "This is a very important victory to me and my country, and my country will be proud".

Alvarez also gave a lot of pride for his sport in the way in which he competed on the grandest stage of them all.
