Golovkin vs. Canelo … Battle to Controversial Draw

There is nothing like the anticipation of a big fight and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez faced ‘Triple G’s” Gennady Golovkin in the most anticipated fight of the year with two of the best Middleweights fighting, adding to the history of one of most celebrated division.

The first round began with Triple G’s coming forward as Alvarez boxed and using his feet to set up his punches.    Triple G’s jabbed while Alvarez countered with two big rights of his own. A close round to score with Alvarez showing defensive skills.  Lederman had it for Golovkin but could easily been scored for Alvarez. 

The second round saw Golovkin showing respect for Alvarez and Alvarez landed single punches but punches had yet hurt Triple G’s and Triple G’s failed to land the big punch.  Golovkin, like Alvarez, had yet to land a combination.  This round easily went to Alvarez as he landed twice the power shots.  Could have been Alvarez two to zero or an even fight.

The big fight proved to be closer than expected and even had some drama before Mayweather finally ended it in the tenth.  In the early rounds, Conor McGregor proved a riddle that it took Mayweather nearly half of the fight to solve and the Irish MMA fighter managed to land a few blows against Mayweather. Over the first five rounds, McGregor landed 51 punches to 40 for Mayweather as his style confused the boxing master but from sixth round to the end, Mayweather landed 130 punches to 60 punches, many of them power punches. From the fifth round, the fight started to change as Mayweather connected more consistently but it wasn’t until ninth that the fight entered its end phrase as McGregor wore down under the Mayweather pressure.
