This match-up always looked a very tough close fight and I - like many - thought GGG's natural size and strength would be the deciding factor but that was not the case, far from it.
Fighters who have been unfortunate enough to face them have spoken of their tremendous power and the bringing together of two fighters packing such heavy artillery meant the fight could not come quickly enough.
Pac would go on to defeat Bradley in both rematches, but the decision remains one of the most controversial in boxing history. However, the Mexican showed excellent defence skills and made some very risky counterattacks.
Adalaide Byrd turned in a scorecard that had Alvarez winning 118-110, while Dave Moretti scored it 115-113 for Golovkin (37-0-1) and Don Trella had it at 114-114.
After the fight, Golovkin voiced his bitter disagreement with the decision and told the media he was ready to consider a rematch.
Byrd, the wife of Robert Byrd, who refereed the Mayweather-McGregor fight, instantly stood out as the main offender - although those in boxing view her controversial scoring as part of a larger problem in the sport. I wanted a "big drama show" tonight, I pressed him in every round, and I controlled the ground.

Cue the photo of the late night host with Spicey. "To be fair, everyone was kissing ass last night at the Emmys ". Still, people have managed to make better jokes out of even worse things, but at least those jokes were amusing .
THE NEW FURY Hughie Fury vs Joseph Parker: When is the fight, and how can I watch it? Maybe he took three, maximum four, rounds.
Scoring at home myself, I had Canelo needing a knockout entering the championship rounds. The judging tonight was awful. I was able to counterpunch and even make Gennady wobble a couple of times. This is not correct.
"This is bad for the sport", Golovkin said. Boxing fans 'round the world were stunned after when the judges announced a unanimous decision in favor of Jeff Horn. Two fighters, both considered in the upper echelon of the division, squaring off for all the marbles is something that even the general public can get behind. I have GGG as clear victor. Lewis wrote on Twitter.
Neither fighter was knocked down nor seriously hurt during an absorbing, and hugely-anticipated, bout for the WBC, WBA and IBF middleweight titles at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
"Yes, of course, if the people want it", said Alvarez. "I'm certainly not a boxing expert but I do have 20-20 vision". However, I would note that he did not have the mood for a hard blow. "Maybe it's that when you fight Danny Jacobs - second best middleweight in the world - when you fight "Canelo" Alvarez - on that night the second best middleweight in the world - it's different than fighting just regular top ten guys".
