As you can see, Golovkin performed better than Saul Alvarez and he probably deserved the victory but the fight ended in a draw with one “blind” judge, Adalaide Byrd, scoring 118-110, while Dave Moretti scored 115-113 for GGG and Don Trella 114-114. With this result Golovkin retains all his titles but they will probably face again in a rematch at the end of 201 or at the beginning of 2018 and it will be a war again! Anyway, congratulations to both boxers for the great performance!
