Canelo Alvarez will meet with Triple G in their second fight on September 15 on HBO PPV at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Canelo and GGG fought to a 12 round draw a year ago on September 16 at the T-Mobile Arena. Draw was controversial. There appeared to be a winner in that fight with GGG outworking Canelo, but the judges called it a draw.
“GGG was coming on in the 11th and 12th rounds, and Canelo didn’t really want to fight in the 11th and 12th,” Mosley said to Mayweather Boxing Channel. “So I’m going with GGG, because he’s bigger and he has power, and he’s consistent and he’s strong and fearless and he goes in there and he fights.”
The judges gave Canelo rounds 10, 11 and 12. Canelo fought better in the last three rounds than he did in rounds 3 through 9, which was when he was exhausted looking and not letting his hands go. Still, Golovkin still appeared to have done enough to win the last three rounds. It was one of those fights where the judges were scoring the fight for the A-side fighter and giving the B-side fighter the shaft.
