 Canelo Alvarez defeats Gennady Golovkin on points to win an epic and controversial middleweight boxing title fightIn a rematch one year after a controversial draw, Canelo Alvarez defeated Gennady "GGG" Golovkin on points to win a majority split decision in a middleweight boxing title fight on Saturday night in Las Vegas.   The match was for the WBC, WBA and IBO middleweight world titles. Alvarez, who is from Mexico, upped his record to 50-1-2. Golovkin, from Kazakhstan, is now 38-1-1. This time around Alvarez won in a very close decision. Two judges scored the fight 115-113, while a third scored it 114-114. "He's a great fighter but the difference is in your opponents. I'm an elite fighter and I showed it tonight," Alvarez said in an in-ring interview with HBO's Max Kellerman.A year ago, Alvarez and Golovkin entered the ring with only one loss between them in 88 fights. The two middleweights fought a close battle last September that saw a controversial decision. Golovkin landed more punches and many ringside commentators thought he won the fight but the result was a split draw. Critics derisively pointed to a judge that ruled Golovkin won just two rounds of 12.The post Canelo Alvarez defeats Gennady Golovkin on points to win an epic and controversial middleweight boxing title fight appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
