If you consider the 12 rounds that Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin were in the ring and throwing punches, and disregard everything else, there is no way you can consider Canelo-GGG II anything but a marvel. An easy fight of the year candidate across all of combat sports, it brought out the absolute best in both fighters and was that perfect occasion where two multi-millionaire athletes fought like men desperate for their paycheck. Many, however, will be content to bicker over the result (a majority decision for Alvarez) and insist that it was bought and paid for before the two men got into the ring.
