The kasajo fighter knocked out Kamil Szeremeta to retain the IBF and WBO middleweight titles.
In a fight in which the WBO and IBF belts were at stake, the 38-year-old fighter showed his might as in his prime to force a stoppage of the brawl in seven rounds. Golovkin had no problem with Polish mandatory challenger Kamil Szeremeta and added his 21st defense of his career.
The Pole, a mandatory challenger for the organization, was easy prey for GGG who sent him to the canvas only in the first round, which left him touched for the rest of the match.
Golovkin, with his trained right hand dominated the fight and took advantage of a more cerebral boxing to avoid Szeremeta’s attack and hit in the body.
Just in the fourth round, the Pole returned to visit the canvas thanks to a powerful left hand by the champion, he observed the damage prescribed by Gennady Golovkin in the left eye, and no longer let him continue.
Golovkin now puts his record at 41 wins, 36 of them by the power of his hands, 1 loss and 1 draw. With this win, ‘GGG’ breaks tie with Bernard Hopkins for the most middleweight title defenses (21)
If ‘Canelo’ Álvarez manages to win tomorrow night against Callum Smith, everything is ready for a trilogy between the two boxers.
