Tonight, Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin went the distance in their second fight in a year. The scorecard was once again a source of controversy as two judges gave Canelo Alvarez the win while another thought the fight was a draw.

After the fight, Alvarez told the crowd that he was open to another fight if the people wanted it.

My corner told me to close the round because it was a very close fight, and that’s what I did,” Alvarez said. “He was connecting some punches but they were few and far between.

“If the people want another fight, then we’ll do it. But for now I’m going to enjoy it.”

While many thought the score was fair there was a strong contingent of fans that believed GGG was robbed for a second time.

Of course Canelo fans thought he did enough to pull off the win.
