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).

If the encounter unfolds as expected, Golovkin will join Hopkins as the only man to successfully defend a middleweight title 20 times."It will mean a lot, but compared to Bernard Hopkins my record is much bigger", Golovkin said.

Martirosyan compared the sequence to being hit by a truck immediately after the fight, then likened Golovkin's punches to being hit by a train in the press conference.

The rematch was cancelled because of Alvarez's two failed drug tests in February, followed by his suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission on April 18.

"But if Golovkin doesn't want the fight, we'll move on and fight a different opponent". I was prepared for a different Gennady.

Most ringside observers felt Golovkin should have won by close decision, but the fight was too close to vehemently complain that the fight was ruled a draw.

"This is a sport to him, and the sport is the most important thing", said Golovkin's trainer, Abel Sanchez. So Martirosyan took the fight of his life on short notice. My ring rust showed, my timing was off. "Just I'm ready. Let's do it. September".

The 36-year-old Golovkin also owns the IBF title, but the IBF declined to sanction Golovkin-Martirosyan as a title fight. "Thirty-six years old, and he's still fighting like that".

On a night he'd hoped would be the crowning achievement of his career, when he figured he'd make an eight-figure purse and definitively establish himself as the best middleweight in the world, Golovkin essentially had to settle for a tune-up.
