More Big Drama from GGG, who probably ate more leather than trainer Abel Sanchez would have liked. GGG landed 49% of his power shots in systematic breakdown of the game Willie Monroe.
Gennady Golovkin's latest big drama show had a few extra twists and turns. The middleweight champion still finished it with his usual show-stopping flourish. Golovkin stopped Willie Monroe Jr. 45 seconds into the sixth round Saturday night, retaining the 160-pound belts with his 20th consecutive knockout victory.
Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs) put on another masterful performance in his adopted home, knocking down Monroe twice in the second round and again in the sixth round of his 14th consecutive title defense. The former Kazakh Olympian has stopped each of his 20 opponents since June 2008, and even a surprisingly strong fourth round from Monroe couldn't throw Golovkin off his path to the top.
