Perhaps Alvarez's best tactic of the series was waiting four years to give his foe a third fight as it soon became apparent the now 40-year-old Golovkin was just a little off the form he'd shown previously. Alvarez controlled the first half of the fight outworking Golovkin, who'd been the more active fighter in their first two meetings. Golovkin rallied a bit in the later rounds landing maybe his best punch of the bout, a stiff counter jab that slowed Alvarez, in the ninth. He increased his work rate the rest of the way fighting Alvarez very tough over the last four rounds. But it was too little too late as Alvarez claimed the decision and the bragging rights between two boxers both destined for the hall of fame.
