Canelo dethrones Golovkin with majority decision win

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

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez claimed the WBC and WBA world middleweight titles after beating Gennady Golovkin on points in Las Vegas.

Sanchez chastised Alvarez for "running" in their first fight, but he credited the game Mexican champion for fighting aggressively against Golovkin in their second showdown.

Amir Khan has led the praise for Canelo Alvarez following his victory over Gennady Golovkin in Las Vegas.

Golovkin beat Vanes Martirosyan as a replacement opponent on May 5 at T-Mobile Arena. But judges Dave Moretti and Steve Weisfeld each saw it 115-113 for Alvarez, giving him the win and handing Golovkin his first defeat. Judge Glenn Feldman scored the fight even (114-114).

Two judges gave Alvarez the final round, allowing him to pull out the win. "I'm very emotional", said Alvarez, who has previously held world titles at middleweight and light-middleweight. "I think we controlled the fight". At times their heads were nearly touching, bringing hooks and uppercuts into focus, with Alvarez landing a well-placed right to the body in the sixth.

It was a gratifying win for the 29-year-old (50-1-2, 34 KOs), who had served a doping ban after that first fight and come under much scrutiny for his use of PEDs, and he was in buoyant mood after his victory.

Boxing can be a fickle game in terms of how a fighter is perceived by the mainstream majority where you're only as good as your last fight.

"We had a great fight, the one we expected the first time around, " said Abel Sanchez, Golovkin's trainer.

The three judges agreed on eight of the 12 rounds, and they all had Alvarez leading six rounds to three heading into the 10th.

He fought valiantly in the 12th round, opening with a big right uppercut, and then kept firing until the closing bell.

"I showed my victory with facts, " Alvarez said.

"It was I who pushed [Golovkin] back, it was I who was most aggressive", Alvarez said. Both fighters dug deep for the so-called championship rounds but Golovkin seemed to have the edge.
