Canelo suffered injury to right hand in training camp for Golovkin fight

Canelo suffered injury to right hand in training camp for Golovkin fight

We used the ropes and we fought in the centre of ring.

But boxing - as it has proved time and again - is far from utopian. The representatives from both boxers have yet to confirm this rumor but both boxers are ready.

Byrd took a lot of heat after she scored Saturday night's fight between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin as 118-110 in favor of Alvarez.

And while the fight certainly lived up to the hype, the result did not.

Golovkin started cautiously in the middleweight contest but appeared to have shaded it, despite a late flurry from Alvarez in front of the raucous pro-Alvarez capacity crowd at the T-Mobile Arena.

Rumor has it that both fighters want a rematch. Many seemed to disagree and believed that Golovkin won a majority of the fight after waking up in the third round. But judge Adalaide Byrd had Alvarez winning in dominant fashion, turning in a 118-110 scorecard in his favor.

"This what they get", Arum said. The scandal forced a change in the Olympic scoring system. "Adalaide is a woman of integrity and a judge many around the world have requested for". "He stated. Whatever the people want, that is what we are going to do [next]", he said.

She has also judged MMA since 2006 and was at the heart of the controversial Lenard Garcia decision over Nan Phan in the Ultimate Fighter 12 finale in 2010. "[It's] perfectly reasonable for people to say, "I gave the first and last three to 'Canelo" and had a draw'". "Something has to be done".

UFC 216 features two title fights as Demetrious Johnson defends his title against Ray Borg and Tony Ferguson battles Kevin Lee for the interim lightweight title.

Skoglund was coming down from light heavyweight, and although questions were asked of his power at 168lbs, the Swede troubled "Mundo" for large periods of the bout causing a bloody nose to the home fighter inside four rounds.

Three weeks later, on November 25, former light-heavyweight world champ Sergey Kovalev (30-2-1, 26 KOs) will take on Vyacheslav Shabranskyy (19-1, 16 KOs) in the Theater at Madison Square Garden. Surprise, surprise. De La Hoya needed the win to set up a big-money fight with Bernard Hopkins.

After an investigation, it came to light that the three judges who scored the fight in favor of Park Si-hun had been wined and dined by South Korean Olympic officials, ultimately leading to Olympic organizers changing the way boxing is scored.

It's anyone's guess when the slump will end.

It's a scene that has become all too familiar in boxing over the years.

Julio Cesar Chavez entered this 1993 fight a boxing demigod with a flawless 87-0 record.

Alvarez moved to 49-1-2 with 34 knockouts and Golovkin remained undefeated at 37-0-1 with 33 knockouts after a fight that was two years in the making.
