Canelo blows out GGG to remain undisputed super middleweight champion

Saul Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin Ed Mullholland/Matchroom

The score between Canelo Alvarez and Gennadiy Golovkin was going to be settled one way or another on Saturday night. 

Alvarez put a stamp on boxing's most bitter rivalry in recent memory, dominating Golovkin from start to finish with his speed and power to win by unanimous decision (116-112, 115-113, 115-113) to remain the undisputed super middleweight champion from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. DAZN had the scores differently, with Canelo winning 117-111. 

After the fight, Canelo and GGG met in the middle of the ring, ending their feud.

"I'm glad to share the ring with him," Alvarez told DAZN's Chris Mannix in his post-fight interview. 

Canelo came out a man on a mission to prove he was the better of the two. His shots were more explosive, his lateral movement was quicker, and the Mexican star was beating Golovkin to the draw at every turn. The fast start made Golovkin tentative and unwilling to unleash the arsenal, which made GGG at one point, boxing's most dangerous puncher. Father time had finally come for GGG.

Alvarez was moving Golovkin back, marking up his face and taking the fight like no one had ever done in the legendary career of the reigning unified middleweight champion. 

By the time GGG got going in the later rounds, it was too little, too late, and the chapter was definitively closed on the Canelo vs. GGG rivalry. 

What is next for Canelo? After getting surgery on his hand, the 32-year-old wants his rematch against WBA (super) light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol if he gets past Gilberto "Zurdo" Ramirez on Nov. 5, which takes place on DAZN .

"I will beat him," Canelo boldly said. Here is what happened at Canelo vs. GGG 3.
