Gennady "GGG" Golovkin KO's Canelo Alvarez's Replacement In Two Rounds

Gennady Golovkin, denied Canelo rematch, destroys Martirosyan in two

Gennady Golovkin claimed a record-equalling 20th consecutive world middleweight title defence by knocking out American Vanes Martirosyan. Gennady Golovkin's rematch with Canelo Alvarez would have settled who the best middleweight boxer was.

Will Golovkin be looking past this Saturday's fight. He meant to spend it under Las Vegas' brightest lights as he proved his middleweight supremacy in a lucrative rematch with Canelo Alvarez.

The Kazakh fighter defeated Armenian-born Vanes Martirosyan at the StubHub Center - the home of LA Galaxy - in California.

Sure, it's not the Cinco de Mayo that Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) had in mind. Even at 154 pounds, Martirosyan was not known as a huge puncher, rather he is a hard worker who is known to come forward. "First of all, for me, this is a sport". Fate has reached out to me and I am ready to seize the moment.

Betfair Sportsbook traders want nothing to do with taking Gennady on in this fight and that makes flawless sense. Some pundits believe the victor of this rivalry will be considered as the face of boxing, commanding millions in cash in his upcoming fights and reviving boxing in the process. It was also a return to form for the 36-year-old, who had failed to knock out his last two opponents, Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs.

Mexico's Alvarez withdrew from their high-profile, pay-per-view event April 3 because he was advised that the Nevada State Athletic Commission would extend his temporary suspension.

Palestinian Health Ministry identified two of the deceased as 23-year-old Bahaa Qdeih and 20-year-old Mohammed Abu Rida. The IDF claimed the suspects were conspiring to damage " security infrastructure in the area of the security fence ".

English Premier League: With top four at stake
The win takes the Blues to 69 points, two behind Tottenham Hotspur who lost 1-0 to West Brom on Saturday, with two fixtures left. As mentioned before, Liverpool's progress into the Champions League finals could play a huge role on how this game sets up.

The tenacious knockout artist built his late-blooming pro career on staying busy while other champions sit around.

Still, there are many reasons why Golovkin-Canelo rematch [VIDEO] should push through. He has not fought in two years and he is moving up to the middleweight division after a career at super welterweight.

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. "This is not a war". Money is not the most important thing.

When is the Golovkin v Martirosyan fight? All three judges saw Ceballo a shutout victor with 40-36 scorecards over Phan, who's 0-6-1 since beginning his career with three consecutive victories. "Basically you're waiting at home watching TV, and you've got a lottery ticket, and I was just so happy to get the call". The Colombian slugger won his first 21 fights - including a first-round KO of future world champion Amir Khan - but is 10-13 since 2009.

According to punch stats, Golovkin landed 36-of-85 punches (42 percent), compared to Martirosyan, who landed 18-of-73 punches (25 percent).

More importantly, it won't be Golovkin's fault if he and Alvarez don't meet in September. He may yet walk out of the Stubhub Centre wearing those WBA and WBC middleweight belts.
