LAS VEGAS — After a draw outcome and a 118-110 scorecard that has essentially gotten much of the attention following the matchup between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, here is a list of some of the media members who agreed with the [draw] decision.

Harold Lederman, who has long been the unofficial scorer for HBO Boxing broadcasts, delivered a score of 116-112 for the 35-year-old Golovkin. Lederman, as he has stated in the past, did preface his scoring during the bout that he prefers the aggressor and forward coming fighter, as Golovkin was. Nevertheless, boxing fans and pundits knew coming in that Canelo is a counterpuncher and Golovkin would be the aggressor. At times (especially during the final rounds), Canelo turned the tables and brought the fight to Golovkin, but the fighter nicknamed “GGG” kept coming forward and delivered responses.

As social media chimed in with their variety of scores and opinions following the event, here are some of the cards from boxing press reporters who have been covering the sport for many years:

Scores from both sides of the spectrum were shared throughout social media, which indicates that this was a highly competitive fight in many respects. Some people prefer a certain style of fighting, while others prefer others. But, in the end, a rematch is all but certain and could likely land on the Cinco De Mayo Mexican holiday weekend of 2018.
