(Reuters) - Gennady Golovkin suffered the first loss of his professional career when he was beaten by Saul 'Canelo' Alvares in an epic middleweight world title fight in Las Vegas on Saturday.

A year after their first fight ended in a controversial draw, Alvares survived a late barrage from Golovkin to clinch a points decision at T-Mobile Arena.

Two judges scored it 115-113 for Alvares, while the other had it a 114-114 draw.
