The boxing world for the most part has disagreed with tonight’s points verdict for Canelo over Gennady Golovkin in Las Vegas.
Canelo won a majority points decision at the T-Mobile Arena.
Both the HBO and BT Sports teams tonight had the decision in favor of Golovkin.
The crowd in attendance also booed Canelo after the decision was read out.
The fight was close in the end but many have lashed out at the decision:

Another absolute disgrace. This is why our sport will never bring in the income that other sports do. Full of horrible corrupt cunts.

Following the fan reaction so far you’d have to think that a trilogy will be in the works for next year.
Roy Jones of HBO tonight shook his head at the decision.
Golovkin stormed out of the ring tonight and gave no post-fight interview in what proved to be a highly controversial night again.
