Gennady Golovkin Calls Out: I Want Sergio Martinez!

Monte Carlo - In front of a packed house of cheering boxing fans in Monte Carlo and millions watching around the world on Saturday night, WBA/IBO Middleweight World Champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin stormed to a seventh round stoppage of Ghana’s Osumanu Adama at the Salles des Etoiles.
 
The knockout, Golovkin’s sixteenth in a row and tenth world title defense improved Golovkin’s record to 29-0 (26KO’s) and boosted his knockout ratio to 89.66, the highest among the active world champions and the highest in the history of boxing’s glamour division. With the loss Adama fell to 22-4 (16KO’s).
 
Utilizing his full arsenal of power shots from each hand and a bazooka like left jab, Golovkin controlled the action from the outset, drilling the Chicago resident to the canvas at the end of the first round.
 
Dropping the valiant Adama again in the sixth and seventh, referee Luis Pabon called a halt to the action at the 1:20 mark of the seventh stanza.
 
“I feel terrific, I’m very happy with my performance. From the opening round I was confortable with the fight and felt good about my power and the pace of the fight” said Golovkin. “He was a tough opponent but I was never hurt during the fight.”
 
Asked in the ring by TV commentator Brian Mitchell about future bouts, Golovkin stated, “I want to fight Sergio Martinez to prove who’s the best middleweight.”
 
Stated Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions, “We’re very thankful to the Royal Family and Golden Gloves along with SBM Monte Carlo for their help in putting on this sensational event.”
 
“Gennady performed in the manner that we believe he’s the best middleweight in the world. Adama was a very tough opponent but Gennady was truly on his game tonight.”
 
In regards to what’s ahead for Golovkin, Loeffler stated “Right now we have offers out to three HBO approved fighters for April 26th at Madison Square Garden and we look forward to returning to New York City with Gennady.”
 
“We’d also like to thank the countries who purchased this fight giving Gennady’s millions of fans around the world the opportunity to see his performance.”

[QUOTE=Koba-Grozny;14408054]Actually lots of GGG fans (also boxing fans) want the Ward fight to happen, but also, sensibly figure it'd be a good idea for GGG to gain some SMW experience first, and also to build his profile by becoming as…

[QUOTE=BoxingSmarts24;14196901]I agree he was doing that 54-68 thing to cover his tracks to get a fight with Floyd. But Ward was on the other side of that scale and you notice how NONE of the GGG fans want that fight…

Gennady is the real deal and has his head on straight. He trains hard and hits like a Mule, But his handlers need to step up competition. I still think a fight with Mayweather or Ward are 50-50 fights
