Golovkin was bidding to defend his WBC, WBA and IBF belts against Alvarez in the bout at the T-Mobile Arena.
But the match was too close to call, with the judges declaring a split draw at the end of 12 rounds.
The scores declared by the judges were: 118-110 (Alvarez), 115-113 (Golovkin) and 114-114.
Though the scoring is under scrutiny, people are already talking about a rematch.
