Gennady Golovkin has claimed that he is the 'real' middleweight world champion in the wake of his Las Vegas mega-fight against Canelo Alvarez.

The multiple world champion tweeted: "Watch replay on @hboboxing to see who the real champion is. I know I won and still have all my belts."

The Kazakh KO king was held to a controversial draw by Canelo in Las Vegas on September 16, despite many observers feeling he had done enough to win.

The split-decision draw ensured Golovkin kept his WBA, WBC, and IBF middleweight belts.

But, Adalaide Byrd's controversial scorecard, which had Alvarez winning 118-110, denied him a legacy-cementing victory.

Golovkin was jeered to the ring by many supporters at the T-Mobile Arena against the popular Canelo. But, at the end of 12 gruelling rounds of action, the Kazakh had won over the over the pro-Mexican crowd.

The controversial result means the two fighters are expected to meet again in an immediate and money-spinning rematch.

Negotiations between their respective camps were reportedly set to begin this week, with May the most likely time-frame for a rematch.

You can see Triple G's latest tweet below, and you can tell he's still not over the result, and you can't blame him.

After months of training, to see a fight you clearly won ending in a draw must be tough to take.

The result was a great disappointment for many fans, who not only wanted to see a victor, but also knew that Golovkin was the true winner of the fight.

No doubt after watching the first fight, many pundits and experts will be tipping Golovkin to overcome Alvarez, as his punching power proved too much for Alvarez in their first fight.

Whatever the outcome will be in the rematch, fans will be dying to see a true winner to settle the long dispute over who the best middleweight in the world is.
