Undisputed super middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (58-2-2, 39 KOs) settled his trilogy with Gennadiy “GGG” Golovkin (42-2-1, 37 KOs) with a clear twelve round unanimous decision on Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Early rounds were close with an edge for Canelo. Golovkin’s face marked up quickly. Canelo increasingly upped the aggression while the 40-year-old GGG couldn’t seem to pull the trigger on his power punches. A desperate Golovkin rallied a bit down the stretch, but it was too little, too late. Scores were surprisingly close at 116-112, 115-113, 115-113.
