It wasn't really war, as was expected, it was more like very tactical game plan from both fighters. From the first bell Saul Alvarez went forward, but the southpaw Trout conversely took the waiting position, trying to corralling Canelo and make him to mistake. In the first half Alvarez was more active, but whatever both fighters were throwing only one punch or combinations of one-two, not trying to involve in the some rough action. In the 8-th Canelo catch Trout's chin with the single straight right, Austin went wobbly and felt on the canvas, but very soon was back and the fight continued at the same pace. At the second half Alvarez looked little tired, Trout was getting more active, but not enough aggressive. Looking at the end, during the whole fight The Mexican didn't get hit hardly even at once. The scoring cards showed the unanimous decision- 115:112, 116:111, 118:109, all in the favor of Canelo. Probably, the point gap could be little less, but anyway, Alvarez did little more to receive the victory.
