Gennady Golovkin defeated Vanes Martirosyan and retained his middleweight titles
Gennady Golovkin defeated Vanes Martirosyan on Saturday night and won the middleweight titles. It was second round and Golovin gained the victory.
Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs) tied Bernard Hopkins’ record for middleweight title defenses by sending Martirosyan down at 1:53 of the second round.
The match was arranged when Golovkin had a rematch fight with Canelo Alvarez and it was a draw. Golovkin will face again Canelo Alvarez in Las Vegas on Cinco de Mayo before Alvarez was suspended for six months by the Nevada Athletic Commission in April after failing a March drug test.
After victory Golovkin said he wants everyone. He would take on all comers, including currently-suspended Alvarez. He wants to challenge everyone to get his belt and he doesn’t care.
