Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez once again put on a good show for fight fans. Much like the first fight though, there’s controversy on the scorecards.

Many felt GGG clearly won the first, but ended up with a draw. This fight was much closer, and possibly a draw, but Canelo ended up with a majority decision victory.

With two debatable and contested decisions, Golovkin is understandably frustrated that the close rounds didn’t swing his way in the judges’ eyes. GGG didn’t stay in the ring for the customary post-fight interview with the HBO team, and just walked back to the locker rooms.

Watch the clip below.

It was certainly a close fight, but for what it’s worth, Bloody Elbow scored the contest 115-113 for Golovkin.
