The GGG Canelo punch stats upon inspection over the course of the fight paint the real picture on who should have got the nod.
What is it they say? Women lie, men lie but numbers don’t lie.
Well, let’s take a look.
The Gennady Golovkin vs Canelo Alvarez bout in Las Vegas this weekend was ultimately scored a draw after one particular judge caused a lot of controversy in particular.
But lets forget opinion for a second. Lets take a look at the cold, hard facts.

As you can see, Gennady Golovkin landed more punches in the contest, and the cleaner ones too it must be said.
That usually is always enough to win a fight but it wasn’t to be for him on this occasion.
While the bout was close, this writer for one thought Golovkin won the bout by at least by a couple (two) rounds.
His professional boxing career record now moves to 37-0-1-33KO while Canelo’s moves to 49-1-2-34KO following this weekend’s bout.
A rematch between the two seems like an inevitable formality after the controversy involved in the fight afterwards.
There is no denying it would sell even more second time around as a consequence.
