The controversial draw in Saturday night's fight between Gennady "GGG" Golovkin and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez was frustrating for bettors and bookmakers alike in Las Vegas. Alvarez tried to finish him off but Golovkin survived and once he shook off the cobwebs the two continued their brawl on the ropes and in the centre of the ring.

Some fans had it closer than others, but Golovkin's aggression through most of the fight gave him a clear-cut win that was evident to nearly everyone, save for Alvarez's corner, promoter Oscar de la Hoya and Alvarez's family. Canelo razzled with power shots, combinations and excellent footwork that left GGG without a target. "I had suspicions when they gave us the list of judges". That's really all I can say. I believe I won. But because of how I've been looking in my fights, I've been knocking everyone out, people are now complaining which to me don't make sense.

No one was ever in danger of hitting the canvas, but the sellout crowd of 22,358 screamed throughout as the intensity of the fight never seemed to let up. "I didn't feel that".

"This is awful for sport of boxing", Golovkin said. I did not see it that way. Then I was building from there.

Bob Arum has experienced plenty of dubious judging, both for and against his fighters, during a Hall-of-Fame career as a promoter that has spanned more than 50 years. Overall, Golovkin connected on 218 of 703 punches, while Alvarez landed 169 of 505. As the rounds peeled off this would be the dance that the two engaged in, and as Alvarez began to tire the more susceptible he became to the technical prowess of GGG.

But at Roof's federal trial , defense attorney David Bruck argued that his client was influenced by hateful online rhetoric. Police nabbed Dylan the next day, and earlier this year, the self-confessed white nationalist was sentenced to death .

So baffling was the result that Sports Illustrated ran a full-page cover of the fight that simply said "Robbed!" for their next issue. "If the fans want to see it again, why not?" I want to thank all my Kazakhstan fans for supporting me, for coming out. "This was a real fight", Golovkin said. "I'm still the champion".

Golovkin, the 35-year-old Kazakhstani who retained his three middleweight championship belts with the draw, still emerged at the forefront of the Byrd bashing and called for a future rematch.

With this being such a high profile fight, there was pretty much nowhere for Byrd to hide. Alvarez sold over a million pay-per-view buys when he fought Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.in May, and his fight with Golovkin is expected to do anywhere between 1.5 and three million buys when the final numbers come out.

Byrd's suspect scorecard, which went 118-110 for Alvarez, has been under fire since the anticlimactic result was announced.

Bennett also dismissed charges of corruption leveled by ESPN commentator Teddy Atlas. Indeed, that is the case with Adalaide Byrd.
