Judge Don Trella scored the fight even, 114-114. Judge Dave Moretti scored the fight for Golovkin, 115-113 while female judge Adalaide Byrd scored the fight 118-110 for Alvarez.

The last judge scored the fight 115-113 and 116-112, both cards for Gennady Golovkin, in what was a tense fight that lasted up to the 12th round.
