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

And this time, there was no controversy from the judges.

The highly anticipated rematch between Canelo Alvarez 49-1-2 (34 KOs) and Gennady Golovkin 38-0-1 (34 KOs) took place tonight live from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Golovkin was more aggressive in seemingly throwing more punches but Canelo landed his own in a more efficient manner. After 12 hard-fought rounds of boxing, the fight resulted in a Split Draw decision, albeit a controversial one. FightNights.com scored it 115-113 for Golovkin. However, this time the judges decided on a clear victor as "Canelo" defeated "GGG" by majority decision to take the WBC, WBA, and IBO middleweight titles. He's a very good fighter.

"I don't think it was robbery, had Canelo winning and I really wanted GGG to win". (When asked about a third fight) Under the right conditions, yes.

And asked on whether or not there will be a rematch, he said: "If the people want another fight then we'll do it again".

"It was a very tight fight", said Alvares in a ringside interview after becoming the WBC, WBA, IBO and Ring Magazine world champion. He's a great fighter but in the end I got the victory. "To judge my work is not my job". It worked for the weigh-in, but Alvarez vows he will be in control of his emotions Saturday night in their clash for the middleweight title. Instead, he stayed in the center of the ring and brought the fight to Golovkin, but Triple-G was still not impressed with his style.

"Congrats Canelo and his team. I'll be back guys; I'll be back". "To Eddy and Chepo who have been here by my side since I was 13 years old".

"'It is one of the happiest days of my life", said Canelo, dressed in bright green suit. This time, the usually brash Sanchez was humbled.

"We're losing the fight!" "I had hit close going into the 12th round".

Overall, the fight was a close one that some even saw as a draw (again), but there was an actual decision this time around. Great fight, but GGG can feel that decision should have gone his way.

The first fight between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin previous year was a great one, but everyone was left disappointed after it resulted in a draw.

Since 2016, Golovkin has looked more vulnerable.

They embraced before each raising their hands but the cards prompted Mexican celebration on the country's Independence weekend.

Olympic medallist and unbeaten professional boxer Michael Conlan reckons that Canelo deserved to win. That's after knocking out all but three fighters in his previous 36 fights.
