Alvarez sees off Golovkin to retain undisputed super-middleweight crown

    SPORT  18 September 2022 - 13:00

    Mexican boxer Saul "Canelo" Alvarez retained his undisputed super-middleweight world title on September 17, seeing off Gennady Golovkin from Kazakhstan to complete their epic fight trilogy in Las Vegas.

    Mexico's Alvarez was in charge for most of an electric 12 rounds at the T-Mobile Arena, winning a unanimous decision to spark wild scenes of celebration among the Mexican fans who made up most of the sell-out crowd, according to France 24.

    As reported, one judge scored the bout 116-112 while the two others had it 115-113.

    This return to 168 pounds clearly suited Alvarez, but Golovkin will be rueing a slow start in a performance which only sparked into life when it was too late.

    This highly anticipated third tussle between two of the hardest-hitting fighters in the world came a whole four years after their last meeting.

    Back in 2018, it was Alvarez whose hand was raised at the end of 12 frenetic, quality rounds which saw Golovkin suffer defeat for the very first time after coming out on the wrong end of a narrow majority decision.
