Byrde caused massive controversy with her scorecards. Golovkin’s trainer, Abel Sanchez, claimed she had her scorecard filled before the fight. Also, here’s a picture of Byrde’s scorecard.

“We had the kind of fight that I thought we were gonna have. I thought that one of the judges had her card filled out before she came to the fight. But that’s unfortunate, that in Vegas they seem to go to different schools to learn how to judge a fight. But if Canelo wants a rematch, I’m sure that they’ll put it together and we’ll have another great one,” said the trainer according to boxingscene.com
