Replay: Canelo Alvarez hits Gennady Golovkin with behind the back punch, gets classic GGG face

Corrupt and or dumb ass boxing judging aside, Canelo Alvarez versus Gennady Golovkin actually lived up to the hype. After the Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor freakiest freak show, boxing was walking on thin ice.

With the world watching and boxing building huge momentum, Canelo and Triple G had to put on a great performance. After May-Mac, a twelve round point fighting sparring session would’ve killed the great 2017 boxing has had so far.

From the twelve round split draw decision (???), here’s Canelo having some fun and hitting GGG with boxing version of a trick shot. Headlock behind the back punches will always earn you a “H” in boxing “Horse”. The tricky move also gave us the best Triple G reaction face ever.
