MONTE-CARLO, MONACO — Before a crowd of 900 at the Salle des Étoiles and countless TV viewers watching worldwide, the former Kazakhstan Olympian, Gennady Golovkin, successfully defended his championship belts (WBA Super World Middleweight, Interim WBC World Middleweight, and IBO titles), turning back the challenge of rugged Brit, Martin Murray, via stoppage in the 11th round.
Murray, who’d never been stopped and arguably was cheated in two previous world title challenges, did a fair amount of grabbing and punching, catching Golovkin repeatedly with right hands to the head. He had some success early, scoring 20 power punches to Golovkin’s 14 in the first two rounds (according to HBO’s Punch Stats), arguably taking the second round with his higher level of connects.

Last night’s main event at the UIC Pavilion had scarcely began when a right hook from the undefeated Rau’shee Warren (12-0, 3 knockouts, 117.5 lbs.) deposited the onrushing Javier Gallo (21-10-1, 12 KO’s, 118 lbs.) into the ropes. Righting himself, Gallo resumed the chase. The combatants circled. Unfortunately, before the bout got untracked, about a minute later, their heads slammed together and, blinking, Gallo collapsed. Writhing in pain, he rolled over on his back. Some booing ensued. Read the rest of this entry “
