Canelo vs. Golovkin - CompuBox Punch Stats

By CompuBox

Gennady Golovkin was the busier fighter and landed 9 of 30 jabs per round. GGG landed more punches in 10 of 12 rounds. Canelo Alvarez landed 42% of his power shots. GGG landed 32% of his power punches after landing 46% in his previous 13 fights.


Gennady Golovkin and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez settled for a draw after a pressure-packed middleweight title bout at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Alvarez got on board early because of his activity, but "Triple G" took control in the middle rounds as he steadily wore down the Mexican with his non-stop pressure. Golovkin repeatedly pressed Alvarez to the ropes, where he scored with flurries of punches.

Strong starts to the 10th, 11th, and 12th rounds helped Alvarez close the gap, but he was unable to truly hurt "Triple G," with Golovkin shaking his head after every punch and walking through the Mexican's combinations.

One judge scored the bout 118-110 for Alvarez, another scored it 115-113 for Golovkin, but the third judge scored it 114-114 for a split draw.

It marks the first time in Golovkin's career that he failed to get a decisive victory, after entering the "super fight" with a spotless 37-0 win-loss slate.

Meanwhile, Alvarez settled for a draw for the second time, and his record now stands at 49-1-2. The Mexican's lone loss came against Floyd Mayweather in 2013.

[QUOTE=HURTFEELINGS;18066507]Canelo landed the cleaner, harder punches. But if you were rooting for GGG you will dismiss those things and "willfully" not see those punches landing on Canelo's gloves and glancing blows. The guy that moved up in weight was landing…

[QUOTE=Damn Wicked;18056261]Whatever the punch stats say doesn't matter. What does matter is which guy took more punishment in more rounds than his opponent. The fighter who suffered more damage is the loser...Tonight that guy was Canelo. He lost the fvcking…
