Canelo-GGG fight ends in a draw, and Twitter's all tied up – CNET

THIS POST WAS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON THIS SITE Click Here To Read Entire Article

What’s that they say about ties being like kissing your sister? Well, pucker up. (Not you, Jaime Lannister.)

On Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Canelo Alvarez and Gennady (GGG) Golovkin battled to a split decision draw. Judge Adalaide Byrd scored the fight 118-110 for Alvarez, Judge Dave Moretti gave it to Golovkin 115-113 for Golovkin, and Judge Don Trella couldn’t break the tie, scoring it 114-114.

CBS called the fight “one of the most competitive superfights on paper that boxing has seen in recent years,” but like many, gave the fight to Golovkin, 117-111.

But many fans wanted a one-way-or-the-other decision and weren’t afraid to complain about it.

Naturally, the scoring — especially Byrd’s — was called out as suspect.
