GENNADY ‘GGG’ GOLOVKIN put his WBA, WBC and IBO titles on the line again against Mexico’s Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.
The Kazakhstan boxer was bidding to record a 21st defence of his belts at middleweight, 12 months after the pair endured a controversial draw at the T-Mobile Arena.
Who won Canelo vs GGG 2?
There were questions whether Golovkin would be able to deal with an aggressive Canelo Alvarez.
Will the 36-year-old GGG be able to cope with a Mexican in his prime? Or will his record be tarnished and ruin an almost record-breaking defence streak?
Alvarez learned from the fight 12 months ago and came out more aggressive, giving the Mexican fans in Las Vegas.
And it paid off as Canelo beat Golovkin on a majority decision to become the new WBA, WBC and IBF middleweight world champion.
