    Round 11: Canelo vs. GGG

    Better looking round for Canelo. He seems to have gotten a bit more spring back into his step. GGG still pressuring. This is a GREAT fight.

    BR Unofficial Scorecard: GGG 97, Canelo 93

    You could argue, based on his early flurry, that Canelo might've stolen that round. But GGG dominated the second half and landed the damaging shots. Alvarez has nothing left on his punches.

  34. Clock Icon3:48 am

    Don't See It as an Even Fight

    Golovkin has taken command in the second half. Unless you gave Alvarez all the early rounds.

    Round 10: Canelo vs. GGG

    Canelo comes out swinging for a home run in Round 10. He's throwing it all out there! GGG seems to be taking it well. Is this Canelo's last stand? Or can he change the fight around?

  40. Clock Icon3:45 am

    BR Unofficial Scorecard: GGG 87, Canelo 84

    GGG in total command now. Canelo still fighting back with all he's got, but the sting is off his punches and Golovkin's physical and mental pressure are firmly the story now.

    Round 9: Canelo vs. GGG

    Canelo on the ropes with his hands down. He's clearly tired, but that's a really risky strategy.

    But GGG walked right through.

  46. Clock Icon3:41 am

    BR Unofficial Scorecard: GGG 77, Canelo 75

    Canelo needs to land something to shift the dynamic. GGG surging and landing the bigger shots with more consistency. Canelo needs to buy some time and space.

    Round 8: Canelo vs. GGG

    GGG allowing Canelo to stay in the center more in this round, but the Mexican looks tired. His punches don't have the same snap on them that they did in the earlier rounds. GGG is surging and that power is accumulating.

    BR Unofficial Card: GGG 67, Canelo 66

    That was GGG's best round of the fight. He was in total control, using his jab and bullying Canelo to the ropes. Not sure if Alvarez just took that round off or if GGG's pressure is starting to get to him.

    Round 7: Canelo vs. GGG

    Golovkin getting closer. He's upping the pressure on Canelo, both mental and physical. Canelo weathering it, but he's finding himself closer and closer to the ropes more and more.

    Round 6: Canelo vs. GGG

    Same pattern here. In the center Canelo uses his speed and body punching to keep GGG at bay. Along the ropes Golovkin has opportunities. Most of this round has been in the center.

    BR Unofficial Scorecard: GGG 48, Canelo 47

    Good Round 5 for GGG. Canelo missed on most of his big shots, but GGG landed some nice right hands along the rope. That overhand right was the biggest punch of the night for either man.
