Promoter of Canelo Alvarez and head honcho at Golden Boy Promotions has reacted to his charge getting the decision last night against Gennady Golovkin.

Both Canelo and De La Hoya will be waking up happy men this morning no doubt.

All the months of trash talk leveled at both of them, personal jibes and more, that win was no doubt sweet for them.

Boxing as it always does in big fights that are somewhat close and go the distance brought about a wealth of reaction from fans on social media.

Both pro and ante the decision last night.

De La Hoya has had a sick laugh at it all:

Laughing all the way to the bank with a third fight between Golovkin and Canelo likely for the new year.

The fight last night was a closely fought battle in the eyes of most that really has split fan opinion online on who they thought win.

Both commentating teams in the US and UK last night had it for Golovkin but it’s always best to make your own mind up when watching the fight back without the commentary on.
