The boxing world was treated to an amazing fight between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin tonight (Sat., September 15, 2018) from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The two boxing superstars threw down in a rematch of their controversial last year, and their rivalry had undergone even more controversy in the time since. Alvarez was suspended for two positive tests for clenbuterol, leading to the expected trash talk from Golovkin’s side.

But when the two finally met in “Sin City” for the second time, all nonsense went out the window and the two threw down in a fight that is being called an instant classic by many onlookers. This time around, Alvarez took home a close majority decision win over “GGG” to secure the WBA (Super), WBC, IBO, and vacant The Ring Magazine middleweight titles. But the combat sports world seems to be torn on just whom was the true victor.

Not surprisingly, many big names from the mixed martial arts (MMA) world were paying attention and weighed in online. Find out what they thought right here (via MMA Fighting):
