Video: Erik Morales Reacts To Canelo vs. Golovkin Draw

By Ryan Burton

Lineal and Ring Magazine Middleweight World Champion Canelo Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) and WBC/WBA/IBF/IBO Middleweight World Champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) retained their respective titles in a back-in-forth war that was ruled a draw on Mexican Independence Day in front of a sold-out crowd of  22,358 raucous fans at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas presented live by HBO Pay-Per-View and before 17,931 Closed Circuit attendees.

The action-packed fight featured everything a boxing fan would hope for in a battle that not only featured the two best middleweights in the world, but the two of the best pound-for-pound fighters. Canelo took an early lead, outboxing Golovkin from the outside with lateral movement, a quick jab and hard counterpunches to the body.

As the rounds progressed, Golovkin returned fire, tapping through the middle of Canelo's guard before ripping left and right hands around it.

The action reached its peak in the championship rounds, where both men went back and forth, exchanging bomb after bomb in an explosive attempt to avoid scorecards.

Celebrities in attendance for this sold-out event included LL Cool J, George Lopez, Randy Orton, Chris Brown, Mario Lopez, Micheal Strahan, Jamie Foxx, Dave Chapelle, Chris Walhberg, Victor Espinoza, and former world champions Oscar De La Hoya, Bernard Hopkins and Miguel Cotto.

[QUOTE=Johnny_Roa;18059994]Lots of good fighters scored the fight for Canelo. Julio Cesar Chavez Sr., Sergio Mora, to name a few. Somehow, people on the internet know more boxing than Julio Cesar Chavez[/QUOTE] Danny Jacobs thought that Broner beat Garcia, have you…
