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.

Round 5: Action-packed round goes to Golovkin

Slower start to the fifth, but some nice action in the corner as Canelo evades several of Golovkin's punches. 

Canelo is just missing with some big power shots and is doing a really good job countering. Golovkin rocked by a left, and the fighters are giving the fans what they want by staying in front of each other and throwing punches. The crowd is erupting.

What a round. The crowd is going nuts, and this is the loudest T-Mobile Arena may have ever gotten. 

Golovkin did enough work pushing Canelo into the corner and throwing combinations.

LA Times Card: 10-9 Golovkin (48-47 Canelo)
