Golovkin: I Won't Say Who Won, But I Fought Better Than He Did!

In what will surely go down as one of the closest and most hard-fought middleweight title fights in boxing history, Lineal Middleweight World Champion Canelo Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs) went toe-to-toe in 12 rounds of non-stop action to defeat the reigning WBC, WBA and IBO Middleweight World Champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOs) by majority decision in their middleweight championship rematch at T-Mobile Arena. 
 
"I'm not going to say who won tonight, because the victory belongs to Canelo according to the judges," said Gennady "GGG" Golovkin. "I thought it was a very good fight for the fans and very exciting. I thought I fought better than he did."
