Gennady Golovkin wasted little time in wrecking Vanes Martirosyan at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. on Saturday night to retain his WBA, WBC and IBO middleweight title belts.
Saturday's event was moved from Las Vegas to south central Los Angeles and Golovkin fought for a fraction of the money he would have received for a fight against Alvarez. A attractive combo sent his opponent crashing to the canvas, bringing his record to a stellar 38-0-1 (34 KO's).
