Forgive the boxing reference, but indeed, it was a big win for Magnus Carlsen in Round 10 of the World Chess Championship 2016 to even the score, with 5 points each, against the Challenger Sergey Karjakin of Russia.
Perhaps due to time pressure, Karjakin, playing as black, made a series of sub-optimal moves in the endgame, starting from his 56th move. Carlsen capitalized on those weak plays and bagged his first win in this match. [replay]
