Alvarez needs surgery after defeating Golovkin – can’t hold a glass


The absolute champion of the super middleweight (up to 76.2 kg) Mexican Canelo Alvarez (58-2-2, 39 KOs) suffered an injury in his left hand in his third fight against Kazakhstani Gennady Golovkin (42-2-1, 37 KOs).

Presumably, without surgical intervention can not do. At the same time, it is too early to talk about the severity of the damage, as well as the approximate timing of recovery.

“I need surgery on my arm after this (fight) because my left arm is messed up. I need surgery, but I’m fine. I am a warrior, that is why I am here, ”Alvarez said at the post-match press conference.

“Exactly so,” the Mexican answered the question of how seriously he was worried about the injury. I can’t even hold a glass. It’s bad, in general. But I am a warrior.”

Recall that the fight ended with Canelo’s victory on points by unanimous decision.

This is how the side referees evaluated the last fight by rounds.
