It’s safe to say that the Alvarez – Golovkin fight is an action-packed classic fight that live-up to its expectation. However, after twelve rounds of boxing there was no winner, since the contested ended in a split draw.
In the score card, one judge scored 118-110 in favor of Alvarez, 115-113 for Golovkin and 114-114 ending the contest for the draw. As always, twitter reacted to positively the quality of the fight but negatively on the results particularly the judge who scored 118-110.
One such reaction is from eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao;
Did they bring these judges over from Australia? ? #CaneloGGG

The tweet is in reference to Pacman’s last fight against Jeff Horn this past July in Brisbane, where he lost in a highly controversial fight, because one judge scored 117-111 in favor of Horn, even though post-fight stats and many boxing pundits, current and former boxers believed Pacquiao won the fight.
As of this writing, Pacman’s tweet have been retweeted for 17k times, got 917 replies and more than 27k likes.
