GGG vs Canelo: Gennady Golovkin has dig at Saul Alvarez after Las Vegas draw
Last Updated: 17/09/17 5:34pm
Gennady Golovkin took a dig at Saul Alvarez straight after their showdown was adjudged a draw, saying it wasn't "a true fight".
After the scorecards of 110-118, 115-113, 114-114 were read out, although he was happy to remain IBF, WBA and WBC world champion, 'Triple G' was far from impressed with 'Canelo's tactics.
"He has good experience, but I wanted a true fight," he told HBO immediately after the decision.
Of course I want a rematch. I want to fight a true fight.
"I like Mexican style. Every time I want a true fight, I want big drama show.
"Of course I want a rematch. I want to fight a true fight."
Alvarez, who drew his fourth professional fight back in 2006, not only felt he won "seven or eight" rounds but also dismissed Golovkin's power.
The Kazakhstan star still carries an 87 per cent knockout ratio but has now been taken the full 12 rounds twice, following on from his points win over Daniel Jacobs in March.

Middleweight showdown ends all level as Gennady Golovkin and Saul Alvarez can't be separated.
'Canelo' was jeered by large sections of the crowd, after being asked if he had been hurt at any stage.
"Truthfully, no," he told HBO via a translator.
"It is not what they actually spoke about, not what I thought. Truthfully, it didn't surprise me.
"In the first round I came out to see what he had, but I won seven or eight rounds easily.
"If the people want it (a rematch) yes... it was a draw."
