I can only call it how I see it. As I said I like the draw great fight, but I had Canelo winning.

This made me laugh.

hahaha yeah I don’t mind them thinking Canelo won, but 118-110 is a bit of a stretch

Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin: Boxing live blog, round-by-round updates

Rematch any time. I’m ok with it. That was great and I would watch it again.

Compubox is so flawed that I discount it. 2 people sitting in a room hitting a button when they think someone landed a punch.

Granted GGG was more active, but all night I was mentioning how his activity wasn’t necessarily effective.

Effective Aggression, ring generalship, clean hard punches. None of these support the case quantity over quality.

I disagree. As I said earlier, I had Canelo winning on my card, but it was really close and think a draw is fine.

Ward vs Kovalev 1 – all three judges had the same score. Everyone said that looked sus.

I understand judges having very different cards. You get one seat at ring side so you are looking up through the ropes at one angle all night. They don’t see what you see on tv.

What a night!

It seems like a lot of you don’t agree with the draw, but I personally think it’s ok. Canelo proved himself at 160 against a bigger man who is the biggest fish in the division.

GGG didn’t look as dominant as previous but he showed he still has it.

Both fighters went to war and now it looks like we get to see it again!

Thanks for tuning in!

Vince McMahon is actually here!

Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin: Boxing live blog, round-by-round updates

This has arguably been the best year of boxing ever but the PPV’s have been weak. This was the one you should have gotten. Great fight.

Most round-by-rounds aren’t the roar ;).

Compubox shows GGG throw about 100 more in every category, but Compubox is flawed anyway so I don’t trust it.

Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin: Boxing live blog, round-by-round updates

Both fighters want the rematch

Canelo said GGG couldn’t hurt him

GGG doesn’t have an answer when asked what adjustments he’d make.

The crowd has turned. Canelo is getting booed now and GGG getting cheered

This is bait for sure. It’s not a robbery when you don’t do enough to win. Settle down.

Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin: Boxing live blog, round-by-round updates

Very even. Great fight. Let’s see it again!

Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin: Boxing live blog, round-by-round updates

You scored it very different to me.

One judge had 118-110.

A draw is fitting, and I would have been ok with either winning, but my card had Canelo.

Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin: Boxing live blog, round-by-round updates

ITS A DRAW!

THE CROWD BOOS!!

I’m ok with that. It was amazing! this is like a WWE storyline.

I think Canelo won, but who doesn’t want to watch that again?

Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin: Boxing live blog, round-by-round updates

This is the closest fight I’ve ever seen.

I’ve contradicted myself twice already and I think I’m going to do it again.

Round 12 is done. GGG was more active but Canelo was more effective.

Waiting on the official judges now. How did you score it?

Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin: Boxing live blog, round-by-round updates

Any time. Glad you’re enjoying!

Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin: Boxing live blog, round-by-round updates

20 seconds to go! Both throwing, both landing. No ones scared!

The bell rings! Both think they won!!

WHAT A FIGHT!!

GGG looks like he took more damage

Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin: Boxing live blog, round-by-round updates

GGG backs canelo into the corner and lands 2 hooks and right. Canelo seriously looks like it was sparring. Hes not phased by GGG’s power at all. Doing a danny jacobs

Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin: Boxing live blog, round-by-round updates

Yeah I edited. Come on mate, I’m not looking when I type.

Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin: Boxing live blog, round-by-round updates

It’s round 12 and canelo comes out swinging!!!

He lands 5 hooks, 7, 8. It’s all landing! GGG keeps eating and moving forward!

Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin: Boxing live blog, round-by-round updates

Canelo looks exhausted in there.

GGG lands a great upper cut and follows with a hook. Canelo’s chin is so solid he didn’t even blink.

Round 11 ends and GGG get’s it. I spoke to early before. GGG 7-5* if nothing changes

Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin: Boxing live blog, round-by-round updates

Just checked in with the Sunday Puncher team – they have it 7-3 GGG. I have canelo leading by 1.

Canelos right is amazing but it doesn’t hurtt GGG who moves forward and eats a secon for fun.

Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin: Boxing live blog, round-by-round updates

Round 11 starts, GGG comes out hunting and misses all but 1.

Canelo back to moving rounf the ring. GGG lands a right hook to the body but gets a left to the body as a price.

Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin: Boxing live blog, round-by-round updates

10 seconds to go and Canelo tries to steal the round by dropping everything he has left. All hooks, all power. 2 land, but not like earlier.

GGG counters with about 5 short hooks and jabs.

Round ends and this place gets louder than I thought possible. I’ll need a hearing aid soon
