GGG vs Canelo End In A Draw

World middleweight title fight between Gennady Golovkin and 'Canelo' Alvarez ended in a controversial draw.

Golovkin retained his belts after a strange set of scores: 115-113 for Golovkin, 114-114 and 118-110 for Alvarez from the judge Adelaide Byrd who received criticism form the boxing world and on social media.

Golovkin, 35, and Canelo, 27, were at war for 12 brutal rounds, going toe-to-toe and landing heavy blows.

The Mexican hit more eye-catching shots while the Kazakh landed more punches.

Experts say the fight was very close but most believed that Golovkin edged it.

Former heavyweight world champion Lennox Lewis tweeted: "I have GGG as clear winner. Loved that Canelo swung to the very end! Both are winners tonight."

Former two-weight world champion Paulie Malignaggi said: "Canelo was never in it once it passed about round four or so."

Calls for a rematch are being made from the fans and both the boxing giants have said a 'YES'.
