Canelo Alvarez dethrones Gennady Golovkin in dramatic rematch

I think Alvrez's camp realized, studying film and observing Golovkin's results in recent years, that he no longer has the punching power of old. Alvarez was 202 of 622, while Golovkin was 234 of 879.

Ringside punch stats showed a close fight, though they favored Golovkin by a small margin.

Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KO's), 36, who had made 19 consecutive middleweight title defenses and was within one victory of tying the record set by all-time great Bernard Hopkins with 20, suffered the first loss of his professional career. "Canelo fought a great fight tonight, and you can't take that away from Canelo". I promised the people I would go for a knockout. We had good judges who saw it from different angles - I can't complain about the decision, but it's close enough to warrant a third fight.

He fought valiantly in the 12th round, opening with a big right uppercut, and then kept firing until the closing bell.

When asked about a third fight, he said: "Under the right conditions, yes". At times their heads were nearly touching, bringing hooks and uppercuts into focus, with Alvarez landing a well-placed right to the body in the sixth.


Said Golovkin: "I feel like I'm a champion, but he's also a champion". Sanchez told Golovkin after the eighth round. But on Saturday, even the harshest of his critics - his Mexican countryman who prefer the forward-charging Julio Cesar Chavez Sr.to the crafty counterpunching Alvarez - had to be impressed by just how close he lived up to the embodiment of what makes a traditional Mexican warrior. "There was only one or two rounds between them".

The bad blood between the pair has grown since Alvarez was temporarily suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission in April for testing positive for the banned substance clenbuterol, forcing a postponement of their planned May 5 rematch. Golovkin backed Canelo shortly after in the tenth, briefly stopping his momentum but the Mexican stood his ground. Golovkin threw and landed more punches overall, and Alvarez was the only fighter who ever appeared to be staggered.

"I showed my victory with facts", the native of Guadalajara through an interpreter. "It was a clear victory". Moretti and Weisfeld each gave the 12th to Alvarez and that gave him the fight. He seemed to want to follow up on his prediction, stalking Triple G at times, but never seemed to really hurt him.
