GGG Coach Abel Sanchez’s Reaction To Canelo Loss Showed Class

What time does the Canelo Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin fight start? Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin Was Once Again Robbed in Favor of Making Canelo Alvarez the Guy

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.

Golovkin threw and landed more, according to CompuBox, but Alvarez landed at a significantly higher percentage.

He later said he believed he had done enough to win - and opened the door for a possible third instalment. Unlike the first bout, where Alvarez stayed on his toes and used movement to avoid heavy exchanges, the Mexican stood in the center of the ring and went toe-to-toe with Golovkin.

"One of the best fights I've ever seen", tweeted James.

"Canelo fought the fight he needed to fight today, and he won", Sanchez said.

Both fighters laid their souls on the line in the last couple of rounds.

A year after their first fight ended in a controversial draw, Alvares clinched a points decision that again divided experts in what many thought could have gone the other way.

It wasn't so happy for Golovkin, the slugger from Kazakhstan who for years walked through whoever was put in front of him.

"It's a real fight", Golovkin said this week. "I am a great fighter and I am a great rival and I showed that tonight".


Golovkin deserves home court this time.

However you scored Alvarez's thrilling majority decision win at a sold out T-Mobile Arena, it's hard to do anything by shout praise at the way in which the Mexican star handled himself in doing so.

Ringside punch stats showed a close fight, though they favored Golovkin by a small margin. Alvarez was 202 of 622, while Golovkin was 234 of 879.

Urias looked good in his return, tossing a ideal inning on just 12 pitches to close out the victory, striking out one.

"It was me who pushed him back, me who was most aggressive, " Alvarez said through an interpreter.

"Under the right conditions, yes", Golovkin said of a rematch.

He was just that, though, in a spirited fight that had no knockdowns but plenty of action. "I think we controlled the fight".

Promoter Oscar De La Hoya cited the bad blood between middleweights Gary "Spike" O'Sullivan and David Lemieux when he said this had the potential to be the fight of the year. "Madison Square Garden, in my opinion, for a third fight would make a lot of sense".

Los Angeles Dodgers young pitcher Julio Urias' long recovery from shoulder surgery came to an end on Saturday afternoon as he made his first Major League appearance in over a year in the team's 17-4 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.
