CANELO ALVAREZ defeated Gennady Golovkin via majority decision at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas to claim the WBA and  WBC middleweight titles.

It was a better bout than the first as Canelo – widely expected to box and move – stood his ground impressively and ignored the famed power of Gennady Golovkin.

That’s not to say it didn’t land, though. Golovkin had long periods of success. At the end of 12 rounds, it looked like it could go either way.
