Post Fight Quotes from Canelo Alvarez and Abel Sanchez, Official Scorecard

What time does the Canelo Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin fight start?

Saul "Canelo" Álvarez says he is open to the idea of a third fight against Gennady Golovkin after taking a points decision - and the Kazakh's WBC and WBA middleweight titles - in a thrilling bout in Las Vegas last night.

Against Golovkin in the rematch, Alvarez was anything but Mayweather in terms of the fearsome manner in which he entertained fans and dared to find out how great he can truly be against one of the most feared fighters in the sport.

The Mexican edged a frantic final round which helped sway the decision in his favour with the judges scoring a brutal and incident packed fight 114-114 115-113 115-113. The only problem with it was, whereas any other human being on the planet would have been staring at the T-mobile Arena lights a split second later, Golovkin was roaring back into the fight, barely registering the fact one of the greatest boxers in the world had just done his best to punch his nose through the back of his skull. "It was a clear victory".

Now that Alvarez and Golovkin are 1-1, who's ready for the inevitable third and final fight?

He later said he believed he had done enough to win - and opened the door for a possible third installment. I feel satisfied because I gave a great fight.

Conlan tweeted: 'I don't think it was robbery, had Canelo winning and I really wanted Triple-G to win.

"We saw that the best way to defeat him is by making him go backward", Eddy Reynoso, Alvarez's longtime trainer, said of their revised strategy.

Waffle House Index created to measure storm effects
Usually, people go to the iconic fast casual restaurant for waffles, hash browns and coffee in that classic, yellow mug. For their part, Waffle House is glad that they can serve as a barometer of the severity of the storm for the community.

Alvarez's victory ended the 36-year-old's dream of securing a record-breaking 21st consecutive defense of his middleweight titles. Golovkin's camp had ridiculed the Mexican fighter for backing away and opting for a strategic, defensive-minded approach. "I had hit close going into the 12th round".

There was plenty of respect between the two fighters in the opening round, while Canelo continued to take it to Golovkin - pushing the defending champion onto the backfoot.

Both fighters fought cagily from the outset, reluctant to trade heavy blows.

He took control with a dominant spell in the middle rounds before holding off Golovkin down the stretch to claim a 114-114, 115-113, 115-113 win. Alvarez won via majority decision.

Golovkin threw and landed more, according to CompuBox, but Alvarez landed at a significantly higher percentage.

An array of stars from the movie and sports world were amongst a crowd of 21,965 for the most anticipated fight of the year, with LeBron James rubbing shoulders with Hollywood icons such as Denzel Washington and Will Smith. It was a technical battle in which Alvarez's skill and quickness edged it out. Golovkin's jab began to find its' range and he finished the stronger of the two men, but each round was so close.

So no, it was no surprise that Alvarez, seven months removed from a pair of failed drug tests and fresh off a six-month suspension, was so eager to declare Saturday one of the happiest nights of his life.
