On Saturday, the Mexican boxer Canelo Alvarez took his second victory against his Kazakh counterpart.
Canelo Alvarez defeated Gennady Golovkin [IBF, WBA Super, WBO, WBC Middleweight] via unanimous decision (116-112, 115-113, 115-113).
Santos Saúl Álvarez Barragán, popularly known as Canelo Álvarez or Saúl Álvarez, is a Mexican professional boxer.
Gennadiy Gennadyevich Golovkin, often known by his nickname "GGG" or "Triple G", is a Kazakhstani professional boxer.
Alvarez started strong while Golovkin worked his jab and barely threw his powerful right hand, the punch that launched him to stardom and a legendary middleweight championship run.
Golovkin found his footing and won four of the final five rounds on two scorecards, but it was too little, too late.
Both Canelo and GGG lowered their numbers considerably, considering the two previous records of their rivalry (2017 and 2018).
Counting the pay-per-view, plus what was agreed in the contract, Canelo Alvarez earned $500,000 for each time he hit Golovkin.
Canelo Alvarez and Gennadiy Golovkin shared a long embrace, apparently ending a feud that grew personal over the five years since they first met in the ring. They fight 36 rounds together.
