Today evening time’s boxing PPV attaction saw Amir Khan coming up in weight to tackle one of the game’s greatest draws, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. It was generally thought to be a fight between Khan’s rate and Canelo’s energy, and that is precisely how it played out.
The official judge’s scorecards demonstrate that one judge really had Khan ahead after five rounds.
Obviously, the scorecards don’t generally make a difference. Alvarez thumped Khan unconscious with a loud shot in the 6th round. However, it’s fascinating to see that Khan began so well. I’m not certain what Glenn Trowbridge was observing however – its absolutely impossible Alvarez won the first round.
It appeared to be quite clear that Khan won the first and second, the third was a hurl up, and Alvarez turned things around in the fourth. He took the fourth and fifth with body work before the KO.
Presently we’ll need to check whether we get the eagerly awaited Alvarez versus Gennady Golovkin session that was built up so vigorously after Canelo’s win.
