Golovkin Drops Martirosyan In Second
Tom Loeffler told FIGHT SPORTS this week, that “Everybody’s focused on May 5th, that’s the amount of respect we have for Vanes… If GGG doesn’t win on Saturday, there’s no conversations of a rematch with Canelo.”
And while Martirosyan had that respect, respect couldn’t stop an uppercut from landing clean on the Armenian American’s jaw tonight at the StubHub Center.
Now, Golovkin will potentially revisit a faceoff with Canelo Alvarez, with Alvarez able to fight by September following his suspension for Clenbuterol.
And for the first time in the history of HBO, two women fought on the network. Welterweight Champion Cecilia Braekhus would outpoint Kali Reis, retaining her titles via unanimous decision.
