A clearly upset Gennady Golovkin refused to do interviews initially after last night’s majority points loss to Canelo Alvarez in Las Vegas.
Ultimately things didn’t go his way again at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas but he can hold his head held high.
He fought like he always does – with passion, skill and determination.
It just didn’t prove to be enough in the eyes of the judges but by no means at 36 years of age he is done yet.
Not by today’s terms, no way.
There’s still some very big fights out there for him including another one with Canelo, surely.
Here’s how he reacted straight after the decision was announced last night:

An understandably frustrated Golovkin.
He did end up speaking to the media after this in a press conference address to everyone later in the night.
It was the first time however in his career that he stormed out of the ring when it came time for the post-fight interviews.
Emotions were obviously high and in a way it was probably a smart move that he took a bit to cool down and collect his thoughts.
He’ll come again from this. Fighters and people like him always do, period.
