Manny Pacquiao led the charge of bemused viewers on Sunday, after the 'fight of the year' between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez ended in a draw, with each fighter winning on one judge's card and the third scoring it 114-114.

However, shortly after the conclusion of the 12th round, expectance turned to confusion for fans of the Kazakhstani as the first judge's scorecard read out 118-110 for Canelo - and even the most one-eyed fan of the Mexican star would have baulked at such a decision.

The second judge scored it 115-113 for Golovkin, and the boos began to ring out in Las Vegas when the third score confirmed that there would be no winner.
