The Mexican claimed a frenetic final round on the scorecards which proved critical in preventing a repeat of the draw both men shared 364 days earlier at the same T-Mobile Arena venue.

Golovkin seemed to fade in the middle rounds, and after the seventh, his trainer Abel Sanchez urged him on, saying, "We're losing this fight", and exhorting him to pick up the pace.

The highly anticipated rematch between Canelo Alvarez 49-1-2 (34 KOs) and Gennady Golovkin 38-0-1 (34 KOs) took place tonight live from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

It was his first defeat since the 2005 world amateur championships. At first I aimed for the knockout, I didn't. "This was a very important victory for me and this will give a lot of pride for my country".

Kazakh Golovkin, 36, thought he had perhaps done enough to get the decision.

"I'm not going to say who won tonight, because the victory belongs to Canelo according to the judges", the deposed WBA, WBC and IBO middleweight king said.

"I think he's scared".

"I felt very comfortable", Golovkin said.

Although statistics afterwards showed Golovkin had thrown more punches, it was Alvarez who landed more consistently, outscoring his rival 143-116 in power punches.

The two fighters switched roles, with Triple G trying to counter Alvarez and the Mexican fighter coming forward much of the fight.

The win wiped away months of simmering acrimony which stemmed from Alvarez's failed drugs test in February, forcing the cancellation of a rematch scheduled in May.

But they embraced at the end of Saturday's fight as the crowed waited in anticipation of the judges' verdict.

While there was a general consensus over the entertainment value of the fight, controversy still lingered as some believed GGG overcame a bit of a hesitant approach as the match wore on.
