SOMEHOW, despite Canelo Alvarez dominating Gennady Golovkin, scorecards were still the talk of the town.
The Mexican was accused in 2017 of walking away with an undeserved draw in his campaign home of Las Vegas.
And a year later, when Canelo emerged victorious from the rematch by majority decision, some again felt GGG deserved the nod.
Although this time four years later there could be no argument as the Mexicans dominated proceedings in the overdue trilogy.
But the scorecards didn’t reflect that, with one reading of 116-112 and two others of 115-113.
That means if Canelo had lost just one more round it would have been 114-114, an almost unthinkable result.
It caused outrage online as the judges’ decisions were again called into question, this time for violating boxing’s precious commodity.
One said: “They drew a reverse card here and tried to rob Canelo.”
Another said: “They almost robbed Canelo… never thought I’d see the day.”

Canelo, 32, is now expected to return to light heavyweight and is looking to avenge his May loss to WBA champion Dmitry Bivol, 31.
Meanwhile, Golovkin, 40, refused to retire and is expected to return to middleweight, where he holds the WBA and IBF belts.
Despite the bad blood between the legendary rivals for over half a decade, the feud is now over.
Canelo said: “For me, I’m just happy to share the ring with him. Like I said, we gave the fans a really good fight.
“I’m glad to be involved in a fight like this.”
