The Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin fight lived up to the hype with a classic middleweight battle that ended in a somewhat controversial draw. One judge scored it 118-110 for Canelo, a second judge had it 115-113 for Golovkin and the third had it even.

Canelo vs. Golovkin: The buzz has begun in Las Vegas

The buzz that usually precedes big title fights in Las Vegas has finally arrived as the crowds of Canelo Alvarez and Gennedy Golovkin fans take over the MGM Grand. 

Fans started lining up at 7 a.m. for the free weigh-in that doesn't start until noon, and by 11 a.m. the Grand Garden Coliseum was already filling up.

While this fight may have a different vibe than the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Conor McGregor bout, there is no doubt that this is the fight boxing fans have been looking forward to.
