Canelo Alvarez triumphed in the trilogy against Gennady Golovkin

Canelo Alvarez is the only fighter to ever beat Gennadiy Golovkin.

And now he has achieved this feat twice.

For the first time in their rivalry, Alvarez was in complete control of a fight against Golovkin. Unlike their first two bouts, which were extremely competitive and close, this one was one-sided. Alvarez outshot and beat Golovkin, nearly doubling up, 85-46, with power punches, and he was faster and sharper all night.

The lethal shotgun jab was never a factor as Golovkin simply couldn’t keep up with Alvarez’s speed. He could not withstand any measure of pressure and never had an inch of doubt about the decision to come. Inaction certainly didn’t help Golovkin. After all the build up and hype, he just looked like a shell of himself in this fight.
