(CTN News) – The Canelo vs GGG 3 trilogy never materialized, but Gennady Golovkin has his chance at redemption at long last. After four years of stewing over the controversial defeat that many thought was a Golovkin victory.

When the two pound-for-pound boxing titans first met in September 2017, GGG was 35 years old, three years older than Canelo.
A ferocious fight saw Golovkin land 218 punches to Canelo’s 169, but the judges split their votes and the fight was ruled a draw.
Although most online observers accepted Canelo’s 118–110 scorecard, judge Adalaide Byrd’s scorecard raised plenty of eyebrows.

While he landed 234 punches to Canelo’s 202, the Mexican landed 143 power punches to the Kazakh’s 116. With two judges scoring 115-113 in Canelo’s favor, he walked away with Golovkin’s WBA (Super), WBC, and IBO middleweight titles as well as his former Ring middleweight title.
It left a sour taste in the mouth of not just Golovkin and his fans, but many neutrals as well, and after four years of bad feeling, we’ve finally got another big drama show.
