Once again, Canelo Alvarez showed why he is considered one of the best of all-time.
Alvarez defended his unified middleweight title over rival Gennadiy Golovkin Saturday night. The two met for a third time from Las Vegas and the T-Mobile Arena.
In the first meeting, it was declared a split draw. The second went to Alvarez back in 2018, and the third, and likely final, was once again dominated by Alvarez.
With the win, Alvarez improved to 58-2-2 in his career, with GGG dropping to 42-2-1.
“Thank you so much my friend,” Alvarez said after the bout. “Thank you for everything.”
Alvarez remains the WBC, WBA, WBO and IBF super middleweight champion.
