Big fight a draw

The Morning Bulletin - - SPORT -

The mid­dleweight su­per­fight be­tween Gen­nady Golovkin and Saul ‘Canelo’ Al­varez in Las Vegas has been de­clared a draw. The re­sult means that ‘GGG’ Golovkin re­tains his three world mid­dleweight ti­tles. Billed the fight of the year, the bat­tle lived up to the hype as both men traded blows for 12 en­thralling rounds. The 35-year-old Golovkin, mak­ing his Las Vegas de­but, kept his WBC, WBA and IBF belts. But the judges could not agree, with one award­ing it to Canelo 118-110, an­other to Golovkin 115-114 and a third mak­ing it 114-114. Both want a re­match.
