Canelo was asked about a third meeting during his post-fight interview: "If people want another fight, we'll do it again... We'll do it again no doubt," he told HBO's Max Kellerman.

Golovkin, on the other hand, didn't give a response to the fight. Instead storming out of the ring to his dressing room, clearly unhappy with the judges verdict.

Meanwhile, the Kazakh-fighter suffers his first professional defeat while Canelo improves his record to 50-1-2.

With two extremely close fights in the books, is a trilogy match on the cards?
