Gen­nady Golovkin re­tained his mid­dleweight ti­tles Satur­day night, fight­ing to a draw with Canelo Al­varez in a bru­tal bat­tle that ended with a draw.

the mid­dleweight show­down lived up to its hype as the two fight­ers traded huge punches and went after each other for 12 rounds.

Golovkin was the ag­gres­sor through­out but couldn’t put al­varez down, and al­varez more than stood his own.
