Govolkin Beat Canelo In Punches Landed
One of the biggest discrepancies from the super fight between GGG Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez. Was the vast differences in the scoring at the final bell. While judges Don Trella had it 114-114 from and a 115-113 scorecard in favor of Golovkin from Dave Moretti. The third judge on the night Adalaide Byrd had it at 118 – 110 for Canelo.
I think it is fair to say that this scorecard has sent some shockwaves through boxing. Once again shining the spotlight on a sport many feels has lost its way in terms of who now calls the shots. Too much money and power in the hands of those private entities who oversee the sport they themselves promote.
With this being such a high profile fight, there was pretty much nowhere for Byrd to hide. And the veteran judge has now been temporarily suspended from judging any major boxing matches in the near future.
Will the effects of the fallout from one of the most anticipated boxing match in some time. Have any actual long-lasting effect on the sport itself is yet to be known. Let us hope that this in some way is a wakeup call.
