Photos: Golovkin Retires Ishida With a Deadly KO Win

WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin kept his unblemished record intact with a third round knockout of Nobuhiro Ishida at the Salle d'Etoiles in Monte Carlo on Saturday. After picking up steam in the second round, Golovkin (26-0, 23 KOs) delivered a powerful right-handed blow, which caused Ishida's head to crash into the ground. The 37-year-old Ishida (24-9-2, 9 KOs) was stopped for the first time. Prior to the match, Ishida promised to retire if he suffered another loss.

[QUOTE=simms601;13200122][FONT="Georgia"][SIZE="3"]Sooooooo, who has he fought to dismiss that claim????? All I need is one person of significance, just one person who was ranked in the top ten. Doesn't have to be a current ten fighter, he can be last years…
