This past Saturday, Canelo took on Golovkin in a trilogy bout at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The two had previously shared the boxing ring in two highly controversial outings that many believe could have gone either way.

“It was really good and we saw, I think the last six rounds like that. Something like that, but it was a good fight. It was a really good fight.”
Rogan Was Impressed With Golovkin’s Performance
Rogan expressed his admiration for Canelo but acknowledged that he was impressed with Golovkin’s showing, considering he was competing at 40 years old.
“Canelo Alvarez is a bad motherf*****. Triple G tried to turn it on at the end, he just didn’t have enough to take the decision, but it was still a good fight. And you’ve got to realize that Triple G is 40 years old too. That’s so old for …read more
