What time does the Canelo Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin fight start?

In Saturday's rematch, judge Glenn Feldman scored the bout even, 114-114, while Dave Moretti and Steve Weisfeld both gave Alvarez the slight edge, 115-113.

After another 12 rounds of fighting against "GGG" the judges declared Canelo the victor via Majority Decision.

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez won the WBA and WBC middleweight titles by inflicting a first career defeat on Gennady Golovkin with a majority decision in a brutal showdown. He's a great opponent but every fighter depends on the fighter.

"I looked for a knockout but it's hard".

"I have a very small cut, but I wasn't hurt", said Golovkin.

"I felt very comfortable".

"I want to thank my corner, which is the best in all of boxing. This is for them and long live Mexico".

Kazakh Golovkin, 36, thought he had perhaps done enough to get the decision.

Strawberry crisis deepens: Six brands recalled after more needles found
The incident, reported at a supermarket in Gatton, involves the discovery of a thin metal object in a punnet of strawberries. The owner of the farm linked to the needle scandal was said to be "heartbroken" over the news.

Later, Golovkin told reporters: "I'm not going to say who won tonight, because the victory belongs to Canelo according to the judges". I think we controlled the fight with all the jabs. The judges are good judges and it was a good fight.

ESPN boxing analyst Teddy Atlas agreed. (When asked about a third fight) Under the right conditions, yes.

Things picked up after as Canelo let his hands go off the counters in round two, Golovkin stalked behind the jab.

In the 12th round, both fighters emptied their respective tanks, launching heavy blows and swinging wildly. But he said in the days leading up to the fight that he will not fall into the trap of trying to fight Triple G toe-to-toe.

Alvarez's six-month ban after testing positive for clenbuterol - he claimed the positive test came from eating contaminated meat - scuppered the first prospective rematch date earlier this year.

But they embraced at the end of Saturday's fight as the crowed waited in anticipation of the judges' verdict.

"We had a great fight, the one we expected the first time around".
