NBA players took their reactions to Twitter over Canelo-Golovkin fight result – ClutchPoints

The battle that many pundits viewed as boxing’s true megafight have ended in a draw. Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez finished 12 rounds and the judges’ scores were as follows: a highly-questionable 118-110 for Canelo, 115-113 for Golovkin, and 114-114.

Unlike the recent Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor match, this one lacked the loudmouth appeal that the aforementioned stars have, but Canelo and Golovkin were both highly-touted as two of the sport’s current best and that was enough to bill the fight as a pure boxing spectacle of the highest order.

Unfortunately, the night was tainted with controversy and frustrated reactions were a dime a dozen as many saw the fight going in Triple G’s favor. Nonetheless, it was a big fight and, as always, NBA players took to Twitter to air their reactions to the result.

Set us up for a rematch
