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

Mexican star Alvarez produced a performance of guts and resilience to inflict the first defeat of Golovkin's career with a majority decision at the T-Mobile Arena.

Their first meeting nearly exactly a year ago was similarly close, although on that occasion the fight ended in a draw.

Two judges scored it 115-113 for Alvarez, with the third judge scoring it 114-114.

The fight, in front of a sellout, celebrity-studded crowd that included Mike Tyson, actor Will Smith and basketballer LeBron James at T-Mobile Arena, lived up to its billing as the best two pound-for-pound fighters in the world.

Both landed well to the head and Golovkin controlled some rounds with his jab though neither were ever in any trouble of going down. However, he left the ring without speaking, heading back to receive medical treatment on his eye, which required stitches.

LAS VEGAS-Saul "Canelo" Alvarez is the new king of the middleweight division after edging Gennady "GGG" Golovkin by majority decision on Saturday night.

It was his first defeat since the 2005 world amateur championships. Great fight with two great champions!' I wanted the knockout. For now, Alvarez wants to celebrate his hard-fought victory, but said in the ring after the fight that he'd be willing to do a third fight.


"I felt very comfortable". That was me. I thank my team, who else has a team like that? He's a great fighter but in the end I got the victory.

"As a boxer, as a fighter I will continue to do my job".

ESPN boxing analyst Teddy Atlas agreed.

"There's no doubt about it. Golovkin won the fight", Atlas said.

And while we may not have been given a definitive answer to that question, the more pressing matter was, 'WHAT IN THE BLUE SHITE IS GENNADY GOLOVKIN'S CHIN MADE OUT OF?'

In the 12th round, both fighters emptied their respective tanks, launching heavy blows and swinging wildly.

The fight began with Canelo showing a lot more aggression than the first match-up between the two, and he seemed to shock Golovkin early.
