Both fighters made the division limit of this world middleweight clash - 159.6lbs, with Alvarez tipping the scales at 159.4lbs with Golovkin two pounds heavier. "There was only one or two rounds between them". "Thank God we walked away with the victory".
"Canelo did what he said he was going to do", Golovkin promoter Tom Loeffler said. Golovkin kept up a steady attack on Alvarez for failing two tests for performance-enhancing drugs in February and a defiant Alvarez vowed to humiliate Golovkin. Great fight, but GGG can feel that decision should have gone his way.
A third rematch has now been rumoured to be on the cards, with both fighters seemingly ready to step into the ring with each other and do it all over again.
"The judges saw the fight in Canelo's favor tonight. This is a very important victory to me and my country, and my country will be proud".
After another 12 rounds of fighting against "GGG" the judges declared Canelo the victor via Majority Decision. He won both the 10th and the 11th on all three scorecards, needing a strong final three minutes to avert disaster.

Kazakh Golovkin, 36, was tentative early but clearly aware he was behind on points got more aggressive as the fight progressed.
For the Kazakh Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOs), a first defeat in a long and storied career was hard to take and he trudged back to his dressing room without speaking to the press in the ring. 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.
Alvarez said afterward that he wanted to fight again in December, and could against David Lemieux, the Canadian who scored a first-round knockout over Ireland's Gary O'Sullivan on the undercard. "I'm satisfied with the victory. To Eddy and Chepo who have been here by my side since I was 13 years old".
Note: Golovkin has taken 8-stitches, the cut was 5 cm. long on his right eye. Despite several opportunities, he refused to get baited into criticizing the result, speaking through an interpreter.
"I come back, guys", he said.
