"He's so good with his feet and if one of them has got the boxing brain to change their gameplan from the first fight, then Golvkin has more of that".

A year after their first fight ended in a controversial draw, Alvares survived a late barrage from Golovkin to clinch a points decision in front of a frenzied capacity crowd at T-Mobile Arena. I thought it was a very good fight for the fans, and very exciting.

"Under the right conditions, yes, " Golovkin said of a rematch.

Khan was impressed by the quality of the fight and lauded Canelo for his gameplan.

"The judges saw the fight in Canelo's favor tonight".

Those sessions were very close and simply based on what you like, with the CompuBox stats making interesting reading.

Many argued the two-weight world title holder "robbed" Golovkin of another victory.

Analysing the entire fight, it can be concluded that Alvarez may have been ahead during the initial rounds, but Golovkin came into his elements as the fight progressed.

Now that Alvarez and Golovkin are 1-1, who's ready for the inevitable third and final fight? Yet despite getting rocked twice in Round 10, Alvarez bit down and weathered the storm in a manner that was nothing short of inspiring. Who knows plenty about questionable decisions?

A third fight would no doubt be lucrative and will go a long way toward either validating Alvarez's standing in the sport and Golovkin's place in the history books - likely both.

In what was a tightly contested bout throughout the night, many observers were split as to who would be leading this one, but the large consensus was that GGG outboxed Canelo, who was on the verge of getting knocked out at certain stages.
