Check Out The Canelo vs. GGG II Official Scorecards

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

Though Golovkin has a reputation as a knockout artist, he never seemed to hurt Alvarez, who credited his fight plan with the win.

Amir Khan has led the praise for Canelo Alvarez following his victory over Gennady Golovkin in Las Vegas.

Therefore, a score of 115-113 to Canelo is not an injustice and could be gaining more traction as "a robbery" due to the first fight result.

Judge Glenn Feldman had it 114-114, the same as Yahoo Sports.

But on Saturday, even the harshest of his critics - his Mexican countryman who prefer the forward-charging Julio Cesar Chavez Sr.to the crafty counterpunching Alvarez - had to be impressed by just how close he lived up to the embodiment of what makes a traditional Mexican warrior.

Pay-per-view coverage of Canelo-Golovkin 2 will begin at 8:00 p.m. ET on HBO pay-per-view.

"I am a great fighter, and I showed it tonight", said Alvarez, roared on by a partisan crowd throughout on the eve of Mexico's Independence Day celebrations.

Atlas was rumored to be getting removed by ESPN from these type of big fights after a year ago he told Australian Jeff Horn he thought he lost in his post-fight interview after winning of the world title against Manny Pacquiao.

One of the best fights I've ever seen! But for right now, I will enjoy time with my family.

It was the first loss in 40 fights for Golovkin, the fearsome puncher from Kazakhstan who held portions of the middleweight title for seven years and hadn't lost since the 2005 amateur world championships.

"I felt very comfortable", Golovkin said.

Conlan tweeted: 'I don't think it was robbery, had Canelo winning and I really wanted Triple-G to win.

"It was very hard and [Golovkin] is a great fighter".

"If the people want another fight then we'll do it again", said Alvarez, beaten only by Floyd Mayweather in a 53-fight career.

The three judges agreed on eight of the 12 rounds, and they all had Alvarez leading six rounds to three heading into the 10th. He was the one who was backing up.

"I showed my victory with facts, " Alvarez said. "It was a clear victory". (When asked about a third fight) Under the right conditions, yes. To add to the drama, the two fighters also clashed heads.

Golovkin fought Vanes Matirosyan as Alvarez's replacement in May and after stopping him in the second round, "GGG" set his sights on Alvarez once more.
