That forced the bout to end in a draw at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, with the other judges scoring it 114-114 and a 115-113 win for Golovkin.

Most observers had Golovkin taking the fight by a couple of rounds after the pair went to war in epic fashion.

But the were audible gasps inside the T-Mobile Arena when Byrd scored Canelo the winner by ten rounds – leading to accusations of corruption.

And now incredibly the American judge is set to rule on another fight involving Canelo.

Unsurprisingly, the world of social media has erupted after this news broke.


Alan Pender wrote on Twitter: “Jesus wept. Adalaide Byrd shouldn’t be allowed to judge small Hall shows let along P4P mega-fights.”

And pro boxer Mike McGoldrick from Cumbria posted: “Can we add Adelaide Byrd being named as one of the judges for the Canelo vs Jacobs fight as another bonkers event from this week?”

Another boxing fan wrote: “Byrd shouldn’t ever be able to judge a Canelo fight ever again.”
