Description

http://www.knockouts2sleep.com Gennady GGG Golovkin (born April 8, 1982) is a Kazakh boxer of Russian and Korean descent who competed in the middleweight (75 kg) division at the 2004 Summer Olympics, where he won the silver medal. Currently undefeated as a professional, he is the reigning WBA and IBO middleweight champion. With a 90% knockout percentage, he holds the highest KO ratio in middleweight championship history: he is ranked first amongst all active current and former champions, and equal second in overall championship history. Golovkin has never been knocked down or knocked out in over 375 fights, both as a professional and amateur. He was named the 2013 "Fighter of the Year" by the readers of The Ring magazine. Golovkin holds notable victories over former world champions Kassim Ouma and Daniel Geale. On June 3, 2014 The World Boxing Association has officially elevated middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (who at the time has ten successful title defenses since August 14, 2010) to the status of WBA (Super) Champion. Golovkin was also granted a special permission from the WBA to defend his title against Daniel Geale on HBO July 26. Golovkin had been previously ordered to face #2 Jarrod Fletcher. Golovkin vs. Geale On July 26th, 2014, Golovkin defended his title for the 11th time, defeating The Rings #2 Rated Middleweight[22] Daniel Geale (30-2 16 KO) via a third round stoppage. Golovkin dropped Geale in the second round. A right hand in the third sent Geale down again from which he never recovered completely. A staggering Geale prompted a swift stoppage from referee Michael Ortega. Geale's defeat started from a stiff Golovkin Jab, according to GGG's trainer Abel Sanchez.[citation needed] The accuracy of punches by both fighters were at the 29% mark by Compubox, but the effectiveness of those that connected resulted in a noteworthy win for Golovkin in his record. Golovkin vs Rubio On October 18, 2014, Golovkin returned to action in a championship unification bout against interim WBC Middleweight Champion Marco Antonio Rubio (59-6-1 51 KO). Since Rubio failed to make the 160lb weight limit at the weigh in prior to the fight, the belts were only on the line for Golovkin. The fight took place at the StubHub Center in Carson, California on HBO with a record attendance of 9,323. Golovkin won by second round TKO.[24]
