On this day, the highly anticipated clash between Gennady Golovkin and Saul Canelo Alvarez took place after a number of failed negotiations among other obstacles. Golovkin’s WBA, WBC, IBF, IBO Middleweight Titles are on the line while Alvarez looks to retain his The Ring Magazine Middleweight Crown. Prefight records; Golovkin 37(33)-0, Alvarez 49(34)-4-1. One of the main reasons that this fight did not take place earlier was due to Canelo’s insistence of making the fight at a 155 pound catchweight which Golovkin refused. It is an action he is often criticized for. Canelo had demanded this catchweight in fights against Erislandy Lara, Amir Khan & Miguel Cotto. In May 2016, Canelo Alvarez vacated this WBC 160 pound strap as the deadline was looming to make the fight as mandated by the WBC. Many have accused Alvarez of avoiding GGG with this move, but he insisted that he was still keen on making the fight despite relinquishing the belt. Canelo proceeded to move down to 154 and take on Liam Smith for the WBO World Super Welterweight Title in September 2016 which he won via KO9. In March 2017, Gennady Golovkin fought “Miracle Man” Danny Jacobs in his hardest fight to date. Jacobs became the 1st GGG opponent since June 2008 to last the distance against him. After 12 rounds, GGG won a close, disputed UD in an exciting match up and retained his undefeated record as well as his WBA, WBO, IBF & IBO titles. In May 2017, Canelo Alvarez dominated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr en route to a lopsided UD victory with scores of 120-108 in all 3 cards. After the fight, Alvarez called out GGG into the ring and announced that their fight will finally take place. Going into the bout, Alvarez had notable wins over Amir Khan, James Kirkland, Erislandy Lara, Alfredo Angulo, Austin Trout, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, Kermit Cintron, Lovemore Ndou, Carlos Baldomir, Josesito Lopez & Miguel Cotto. On the other hand, Golovkin had meaningful triumphs over Curtis Stevens, Osumanu Adama, Kassim Ouma, Matthew Macklin, Daniel Geale, Marco Antonio Rubio, Martin Murray, Willie Monroe Jr, David Lemiuex, Kell Brook & Daniel Jacobs. From the opening bell, it was a highly competitive affair with both fighters having their share of great moments. Canelo outbox GGG in the early rounds with his slickness and better overall speed. But going into the mid and towards the late rounds, Canelo appears to be fatigued and Golovkin gains the upper hand over him. While Alvarez also retaliated with some good shots, he appears to be inactive and trying to steal rounds with flurries time after time while largely choosing not to engage. However, in the 12th frame Canelo came back strong and might have won the round decisively. The outcome was a controversial draw, as many believe GGG to be the rightful winner. Dave Morretti and Don Trella scored it 115-113 (for GGG) & 114-114. While both of these cards are considered acceptable, but Adalaide Byrd’s 118-110 for Alvarez was highly condemned. It is considered to be one of the worse scoring in recent years. Harold Lederman, ESPN & Bobby Davis from The13thRound.com all scored it 116-112 in favor of GGG while Associated Press & BoxingScene.com both had it 114-114. An immediate rematch was ordered by the WBC, and Golden Boy President Eric Gomez announced in April this year that the fight will take place on Cinco De Mayo, May 5th 2018. But in an unfortunate turn of events, Alvarez failed 2 random urine drug tests for the banned substance, clenbuterol. Canelo blamed it on consumption of contaminated meat; a well known issue which had affected a number of Mexican athletes in recent years. Alvarez proceeded to pull out of the rematch, and he was slapped with a 6 month suspension after hearing by the NYSAC. What do you guys think of this fight - as in who should have won or do you think the verdict is fair? Also, do you think the rematch will take place? Let me know in the comments.
